When will Canon stop supporting your camera?

One of the most frustrating parts of camera ownership is you can't be sure if or when your camera might break. Cameras usually come with a manufacturer warranty from the date of purchase that covers against anything that might go wrong from manufacturing defects, but this usually only lasts for a year, with Canon offering a more generous two years on most products.

Cameras, especially in professional use, can be put under a lot of stress, with lots of moving buttons, dials, and other parts that can easily fail when used repeatedly. So it is good to know when buying a new camera just how long you might be able to get support, after your official warranty has ended.
