Canon Recalling S100 Camera Due to Faulty Lens

By Mario Aguilar on at

Canon's S100 camera—the company's premier point-and-shoot model— is being recalled due to a problem where the lens would get stuck while extended. Here's how to find out if your camera is one of those affected.

Any faulty models will fall under certain serial number ranges which are as follows:

The first and second digits of the camera's serial number are any number from"29" through"41."
For example: "29xxxxxxxxxx",  "30xxxxxxxxxx"………"41xxxxxxxxxx"

According to Canon, certain S100s are susceptible to the lens error, which is caused by a disconnected part within the lens. The part comes loose when the camera is exposed to high-temperatures and/or humidity. If you're experiencing the same issue, and Canon confirms that it's caused by the disconnected part, the comapny will repair it for free. For more details, head over to Canon. [Canon via The Verge]
