How old of a camera will Canon stop replacing the shutter?

I know that Canon has a stock of parts for discontinued products. I wanted to know usually how long before Canon will stop servicing old products. Say for instance I have a 1D mark I and the shutter broke. Is it still fixable from CPS.

I would think that it would be model by model depending on availability. At some point though it just isn't worth it anymore.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

It's all about having a complete set of spares really - as far as I know the 1D & 1D MK II are now no longer supported. Having said that, there are a lot of spares sitting on 3rd party repair shelves, so depends on who you ask for servicing you might be lucky...

you can still buy 1D shutters on e-bay...


some fairly old canon camera stuff, canon lenses, Manfrotto "thingy", 1D MK II converted for IR, and now an M5

Canon Service takes items of the supported list. At that point they no longer accept them for repair.
When asked, they provide a list of repair facilities that can provide the repair.
As noted, its not a matter of parts its a matter of policy.

When a large number of a particular 1D series cameras become available, cheap, on the used market that usually means CPS no longer supports them. So, the newspapers, etc. purge their stock rooms.

yep, when they don't have a complete complement of parts, they have a policy of discontinuing service... ;)
