The Rebel with a Cause…for concern!
Canon Inc has today issued an alert to owners of the Rebel T4i/EOS 650D. Apparently, the rubberised hand grips of some models could turn white and produce a chemical (zinc bis (N,N’-dimethyldithiocarbamate) that may cause an allergic reaction.
According to Canon, this chemical is not actually used in the production of the camera but it could be produced via a chemical reaction between some other substances found in the Camera’s hand-grip.
