‘Canon is inspecting stock received to ensure that all products perform in line with specifications and meet expectations,’ Canon Australia’s manager, Product PR, Natasha Ciesielski,informed Photo Counter.

‘There may be some affected units in the Australian market and we have posted the following service notice online and notified our retail partners accordingly.’

The service notice states: ‘In some units…white spots may exist on the optical layer which can result in the appearance of dark circular patterns on the captured image under certain shooting conditions. This is due to irregularities on an optical layer, located in front of the image sensor.
