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.

Canon Announces Three PowerShot Cameras with HD Video

Canon isn’t going to have Nikon have all the announcement fun today. They’ve unveiled three new PowerShot compact cameras: the S95, the SD4500 IS, and the SX130 IS. The cameras will cost $400, $250, and $350 (respectively), and all offer HD video recording.

The S95 offers a new High Dynamic Range (HDR) scene mode that captures three photos with a single push of the shutter and combines the bracketed exposures into a single HDR photograph.

The SD4500 IS also rises above the other two by offering a 1080p HD video mode (the others have 720p), a super slow motion mode (240fps), and a speed burst mode of 8.4 frames per second.

Expect these cameras to hit the market late August or early September 2010.
