Not really any massive need, just curious. Any way telling how old your camera is from the serial number?

Just that my camera was made from 2004-2007 I believe......

Look inside the battery compartment for a date code. Then google Canon Date Codes and you will find several pages on it.

I would think shutter clicks more important than year produced. If you want to know....may wish to email canon and ask the people who produced the camera. I have never heard of a system of dating like they have with lens's.


I stand corrected!!!!
