Canon’s Popular PowerShot S100 Has Lens Issue, Free Repairs Offered

Canon recently announced that some owners of the Canon PowerShot S100 compact camera could be eligible for a free repair. The S100 lens is prone to getting stuck when extended — an error that Canon says is due to a part getting disconnected within the lens. Humidity and heat can exacerbate the problem.

Owners of the product within the serial number range:”29xxxxxxxxxx”, “30xxxxxxxxxx”…”41xxxxxxxxxx” are eligible for free repair, regardless of warranty status, if they exhibit the problem. The Verge also reports that Canon is offering refunds to anyone who paid for a repair for the lens error.
