An irregularity with Canon T6i and T6s camera sensors we reported on this week, first discovered by LensRentals.com, has been acknowledged by Canon as a slight defect with a handful of the popular DSLR.
According to Canon:
The following phenomenon may occur due to irregularities on an optical layer located in front of the image sensor:
White spots may exist on the optical layer which may result in the appearance of dark circular patterns on the captured image under certain shooting conditions.
As this issue is a serious one, Canon has published a product advisory to help users find out if their camera is affected. They’ve also stated that any potentially defective units are going to be inspected and, if necessary, repaired at no cost. There was no mention of a recall with the flawed cameras, but Canon will keep us updated as more details come into focus (see what we did there?)
A Canon spokesperson told Engadget: “At this time, we offer our apologies to any customer who might have been inconvenienced. We are actively looking into solutions to fix any issues related to this advisory,”
