Canon has issued a minor recall for certain versions of its PowerShot SX50 HS digital camera over improper construction of its rubber viewfinder eye piece.

Typically, when we talk about Canon we're talking about consumer focused digital cameras and video cameras. Canon also builds a range of small network cameras designed to be used for video surveillance and security among other things.

Recording video in the dark often requires a supplementary IR light to be possible, with such small pin-pricks of light as fireflies being invisible in the dark to most camera sensors. Canon has successfully recorded the tiny glowing insects, however, using a full-frame 35mm high-sensitivity CMOS sensor that it had announced back in March of this year.
