Posted by Fox Sports on October 12, 2018 05:17:59If you were in the market for a new Canon PowerPhotography S60, you may want to wait a few more weeks before you buy one, as Canon has pulled the plug on its production run of the camera.
Canon announced the news today, saying it was discontinuing production of the S60 because of issues with a test batch of the printer ink used to print the sensor.
The company said it will continue to work with third-party manufacturers to bring the printer-used ink to market, but it’s no longer a priority.
Canon did not respond to a request for comment.
As part of its efforts to make the S70 available to more customers, Canon announced earlier this month that it would end its supply of printer ink to some retailers, including Best Buy, as it sought to address supply issues in the future.
The company also said it would work with manufacturers to make its new camera compatible with printers using the Canon Inkjet printer technology.
That decision came after a string of problems for Canon’s Inkjet technology.
The technology uses a laser to print ink onto a sensor and then uses a special ink to ink the sensor, which has a temperature and pressure sensor that can detect changes in temperature.
When those sensors are over-heated or under-heating, the ink runs off, creating an overprint.
In October, Canon issued a recall of the PowerShot 7S and PowerShot E7 cameras for overheating issues, and the company is also in the process of recalling its S70, S70i, and S60i cameras.
