Canon EOS Rebel T4i/650D Service Advisory

Canon EOS Rebel T4i/650D Service Advisory

Here we go again…
Thank you for using Canon products.

The front rubber grips of some units of the Canon EOS REBEL T4i Digital SLR camera (EOS 650D/EOS Kiss X6i overseas models) may change color (turn white) after a short period of time. Customer support for this phenomenon is described below.

Canon continuously strives to provide our customers with high quality, reliable products that can be used with confidence. We offer our sincerest apologies to any customers who may be inconvenienced.

Phenomenon
The front rubber grips of some EOS REBEL T4i units produced in certain lots during the sixteen-day period between May 31st through June 15th, 2012 may turn white after a short period of time. We have determined after inquiry with the rubber manufacturer and analysis, that the substance zinc bis (N,N’-dimethyldithiocarbamate) is what causes the rubber surface to turn white.

Zinc bis is not used in the production of this product. However, the quantity of rubber accelerator used in the affected production lots was slightly higher than usual. As a result the rubber grips may turn white due to a chemical reaction with the rubber accelerator and other substances. High temperature and high humidity may contribute to this condition. Zinc bis (N,N’-dimethyldithiocarbamate), which becomes deposited on the rubber surface, is created as a result of this chemical reaction.

Affected Product
Some EOS Rebel T4i digital SLR cameras produced from May 31 through June 15 may be affected.

You can use the serial number to check whether your camera is affected by this phenomenon. If the sixth digit of the serial number is “1″ please follow the procedure below. If the sixth digit of the serial number is “2″ or higher, your camera is not affected.

Procedure:
1) Click on the link below to enter your serial number.

2) Enter the 12-digit serial number (reference the image below) from your camera then click the Submit button

3) One of the following messages will appear.

· “Your camera is NOT affected” ? No further action is required

· “Your camera is affected” ? Please see the Support section below

Click here to enter your serial number (hint: read this instruction before opening that page)

Caution on Use
The amount of zinc bis (N,N’-dimethyldithiocarbamate) detected during our testing was minimal. While Canon has not received any reports of injury or allergic reactions, depending on one’s health and physical condition, in rare cases when this substance comes into contact with skin, allergic skin reactions* may develop. In addition, if eyes are rubbed after contact with the substance, symptoms, such as red eyes, may develop.

As a precautionary measure, thoroughly wash your hands with water if they have come in contact with the rubber grips that have turned white. (If any medical symptoms develop, please consult your physician immediately.)

*Please note that the occurrence of allergic skin reactions depend on the target substance, length of contact with the target substance, one’s health and physical conditions, and sensitivity of one’s skin structure, and not everyone will be affected by allergic symptoms.

Support
Preparations are underway to provide free repair service for affected cameras by replacement of the rubber grips. Once this repair service is available (ETA of mid July 2012), we will post an update on our web site and also notify registered users via email. Please register your EOS Rebel T4i, so that we can inform you via email when the free repair service will commence.

This information is for residents of the United States and Puerto Rico only. If you do not reside in the USA or Puerto Rico, please contact the Canon Customer Support Center in your region.

Thank you,

Canon Rebel T4i Review With Video Samples

A good review of the new Canon Rebel T4i
The folks at Cinema 5D have posted a review of the new Canon EOS Rebel T4i/650D.

From Cinema 5D about their test camera
“The beta firmware version had some limitations like I couldn’t adjust the white balance or had wrong exposure at times. This should be resolved in the final version.

The handling of the camera was nice, although I didn’t find the button layout perfect for video (having to reach with the wrong hand to the wrong side of the camera).”

Canon Rebel T4i Stock Notice

Canon Rebel T4i Stock Notice

When can you get one?
The new Rebel T4i/650D will be available in stores fairly soon. Below is a list that is to the best of my knowledge as to when you can expect shipments to start for the new flagship Rebel.

Rebel T4i Body Only & Rebel T4i w/18-55 IS II Kit

Rebel T4i w/18-135 IS STM Kit

Canon EF 40mm f/2.8 STM

By the looks of things, and what people have told me. Initial stock for all the above items should be pretty good initially and be great in July and August. There appears to be a wait for the T4i w/18-135 IS STM kit initially, although the lens by itself is showing availability in late June, we’ll see what transpires with that.

Canon EOS Rebel T4i First Impression Review

Canon EOS Rebel T4i First Impression Review

Good first review for the T4i.
The T4i has been reviewed by digitalcamerainfo.com, and it’s quite favourable. It looks like Canon has upped their game for the Rebel line.

From Digital Camera Info

In shooting with the T4i, it’s clear that the sum of all those spec upgrades is a camera that truly feels new. That’s a good step for Canon, as we felt the T3i was a lackluster, marginal improvement on the massively successful T2i that preceded it. With the T3i staying in the line as a mid-level option (above the T3 and below the T4i, for now), that separation was necessary for the T4i to be relevant.

The New Rebel
Here’s a picture of the new Canon EOS Rebel T4i/650D.

The lens on the camera is not the new rumoured 18-135 IS with a silent AF motor. Below that is a picture with the new EF-S 18-135 IS STM (silent motor).

There are no confirmed specs at this time, we expect those soon.

*UPDATE*
I upgraded the announcement date to [CR3]. The specs I’ll leave at [CR2], I haven’t heard a confirmation of the short list below.

New Rebel this week?
It appears June 8, 2012 may be the announcement date for the new Canon EOS T4i/650D. I am told the NDA’s lift that day. Friday seems to be the new favoured day of the week for Canon announcements. I didn’t get any new specs on the camera, so I posted the specs we reported earlier. I’ll post more if I get more.

I also expect a new EF-S 18-135 IS to be announced alongside the EF 40mm f/2.8 pancake.

  • 18mp (no word on whether or not its a new or modified 18mp sensor)
  • 9 AF Points, all cross-type
