Canon Recalls EOS Rebel T41 For Skin Allergy Potential

In case you haven't heard, Canon has recalled some of the EOS Rebel T4i  for the potential of skin allergies. Apparently the rubber grips have a chemical that can change the grips from black to white and cause skin irritations.  One person reported a rash after contact, and so they are recalling around 68,200 cameras that were sold at places like Best Buy, B&H Video,, among other retailers.

The ones being recalled were sold June and July 2012.

The camera was imported from Japan, and the 12-digit serial number which has a 6th digit that is a 1, can be found on the bottom of the T4i.

For more information contact Canon at (855) 902-3277 Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. to midnight, and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

That's a lot of cameras to be recalling in response to one alleged allergic reaction, but I suppose better safe than sorry.  The Canon camera is a great camera, I love both of mine.

I Made It To The Front Page Of Etsy- "Blue Ridge In Black and White"

I finally made it to the coveted Front Page of Etsy. It had been a very long while- early last year, I think it was, and as an alternate.  Everyone complains about the same people getting to the Front Page, which is a very valid issue- since one's views usually skyrocket on those occasions- but we have no control over that. I have been in many treasuries, some definitely Front Page worthy, that never made it.

So I had to share this one.

My black and white Blue Ridge Mountain photo is very popular, I've sold two so far.

I added the 8x10 versiob after the 5x7, but people seem to pick the 5x7 print for treasuries and to favorite. It currently has 990 views, 366 admirers, and is in 57 treasuries.

It's one of my favorites.

Canvas Gallery Wrap Mockups- for Liane

Here are some 16 x 16 canvas gallery wrap mockups, with mirror edges that I put together for a customer. 

Both photos were taken in Quebec. The first is an historical general store outside of Quebec. The other was a closeup of flowers next to a door in Old Quebec city.
