Canon issues recall on PowerShot A650 IS for China, US to follow?


Getting some nasty light in your PowerShot A650 IS pictures? Finding that no amount of Photoshop retouching can make your family photos look decent? Well, take heart -- in might not be your fault. Canon has issued a recall for the aforementioned camera, due to a defect when shooting with the Vari-Angle LCD display under sunny conditions which allows light to leak through the body and cause image problems. The company's US branch has yet to issue a statement, though Canon China has made the recall official, and we're guessing other regions will follow suit. That is, we hope they will -- we've got some familial engagements coming up, and those pictures need to look awesome.

Update: Indeed, the recall affects US customers too.
