Whoops! Something went wrong!

Canon has just released a statement saying the front rubber grips of some Canon T4i DSLR cameras may cause an allergic reaction. The grips could also turn white after a short period of time, which combined with the possibility of allergies, can cause big problems for users. 

According to Cannon’s statement, the front rubber grips of some EOS REBEL T4i units produced in certain lots during the sixteen-day period between May 31st through June 15th, 2012 may turn white after a short period of time due to the presence of the substance zinc bis (N,N’-dimethyldithiocarbamate) is what causes the rubber surface to turn white.  the quantity of rubber accelerator used in the affected production lots was slightly higher than usual.

Zinc bis is what can cause allergic skin reactions. To find out if your T4i is affected, you’ll have to plug in your serial number into Canon’s website. You’ll only need to do this if the sixth digit of the serial number is “1”.
