Sony announced a recall of 416,000 Cyber-Shot DSC-T5 digital cameras. The firm says there's a problem with the bottom plating, it can warp and create a sharp edeg which can cut or scratch user's hands
The repairs will affect 66,000 of the cameras sold in Japan, and another 350,000 which have been sold in the US, Europe, and China. A Sony spokesperson says about 30 customers in Japan and several others overseas reported "finding" the defect, which probably means a trip to the ER after trying to take a family photo. The company suggests checking model and serial numbers to see if your camera is affected
