    From Canon:

    It has recently come to our attention that the vendor-supplied CCD
    image sensor used in Canon digital camera and digital camcorders may
    cause the following malfunction: When the product is used in recording
    or playback mode, the LCD screen and/or electronic viewfinder may
    exhibit either a distorted image or no image at all. While reports of
    this malfunction have been rare in the United States, we have
    determined that it may occur if the product is exposed to hot and humid
    environments.

    Effective immediately, and regardless of warranty status, Canon will
    repair, free of charge, products exhibiting the above-mentioned
    malfunction if the malfunction is caused by the CCD image sensor. Canon
    will also cover the cost of shipping and handling in connection with
    this repair.

    U.S. residents are kindly directed to contact the Canon Customer
    Support Center for further assistance at 1-800-828-4040. Support hours
    are Monday thru Friday - 8:00 AM to 12:00 midnight; and Saturday 10:00
    AM to 8:00 PM (all times EST). Alternatively, if electronic support is
    preferred, please send your email to

    This information is for residents of the United States of America 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.

    We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused by this issue, and
    appreciate your understanding in this matter. Thank you for your
    support and patronage of Canon products.

    What is your fucking point troll?

    I'm seriously considering switching to the K10D but not because of a year
    old Canon recall for cameras that I don't use or even own.

    Nice how you snipped two lines out of the advisory which would have
    shown that the advisory is not relevant to DSLR cameras. I noticed as
    of this writing you haven't posted this helpful information in the
    rec.photo.digital group, so I did it for you.

    :p

    Actually the update is from October 31 2006. I replied to the troll
    against my better judgement, but only for the proper edification of
    the users here.

    Misleading is putting it mildly. If he had read the article he
    selectively quoted he would have known it was an update to a service
    notice from a year ago.

    Also, if he had done even the slightest amount of research (Google
    CANON RECALL CCD) he would have discovered this is a SONY problem, and
    it affects cameras manufactured by Canon, Fujifilm, Sony, Konica
    Minolta, Nikon, Ricoh, Olympus, and ... PENTAX.

    None of the affected cameras, BTW, are DSLRs. (Rich, this is what this
    froup is about.)

    You ever stop to think it might be an error on the Canon site?

    "Affected products:

    - Camcorders: ZR60, ZR65 MC, ZR70 MC, ZR80, ZR85, ZR90, ELURA 40 MC,
    ELURA 50
    - Digital Cameras A60, A70, A75, A300, A310, S230, SD100, SD110, A40(*),
    A80(*), A85(*), A95(*), S1 IS(*), S60(*), S200(*), S330(*), S400(*),
    S410(*), S500(*)"

    Another clue might be "It has recently come to our attention that the
    vendor-supplied CCD image sensor used in Canon digital cameras may cause
    the following malfunction". Since when does the XTi use a CCD?

    No, I guess Canon uses different fab plants for different sensors.
