Default how old is my camera? serial number dating?

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!!!!
