Canon has issued a recall over some Canon EOS R10 (buy here) bodies. Canon hasn’t said much about the issue except to say that some users have experienced a “loud noise” when the built-in popup flash fires. They describe it as a “bachi” sound – whatever that means. Update: Canon USA’s announcement clarifies this as a “crackling” sound.
Despite the service notice being posted to the Canon Japan website, this doesn’t only affect EOS R10 cameras sold in Japan. It appears to be a global issue, as a notification has also popped up on the Canon USA website since I started writing this post. The serial number checker also exists on Canon’s global website, not a regional one.
