  1. Interesting that they describe the sound as a "click" - which implies a mechanical issue. Yet they say it occurs when the flash is "emitted", so it can't be caused by the action of the flash popping up.

    Flash units sometimes emit a "crack" noise when operating at full power, so I wonder if the problem (er, I mean *phenomenon") indicates that the flash is always firing at full power (indicating a fault with the E-TTL flash metering).
  2. Mine has a serial in the range that could be affected, and I already started swearing (tbh I have never tested if the flash is even working :oops:), but lucky for me when checking the entire serial number, the response from the Canon website is "Your camera is NOT an affected product" :giggle:
  3. Canon has been quite generous with recall period.
    The camera was released in July 2022 so it's well within the most minimal of period warranties of 1 year. If it's a manufacturing fault, then in the EU, the manufacturer is responsible for 6 years. It's their legal obligation everywhere to fix it.
