I don't think Canon publishes MTBF for the PowerShot line. However, I'd be surprised if the shutter was the weakest link in the camera.

Any mechanical component will have a life cycle. It's just generally not an issue with P&S cameras because they typically don't see the heavy use that DSLRs do.

I don't think digicam have a shutter. I would suspect with normal careful use, you'll get tired of it and replace it before it wears down.

as it is still a very new product, only time will tell. I will accept a 3 years of reasonable use (by a shutterbug like me).

Lensmen, you are right. If it lasts 3 years, replacing it for another $349 (US) will not be nearly as much as replacing ANY SLR.

Of course, the SX10 will have been discontinued and replaced with an Sx11, SX12 and SX13 within three years from now.;)

:) Of course! THAT is a part of the upside. You get all of the recently developed bells and whistles. :D

Like more megapixels, more noise and fewer controls? We are talking about Canon, after all.

Maybe you are right, but I am pretty happy with my SX10 so far.

...plus they are not stupid also, making items that are virtually indestructables like the old beatle. You will be their lifelong customer with 1 (and the same) car for the rest of your life. Then their factory can close shop.

The trick is, they have to make a product that is good enough to keep you as a loyal customer, but with obsolesence planned well enough to ensure serial purchases.

I am retired from the newspaper business. We had it great. No matter how good our product was, it was obsolete in 24 hours - EVERY TIME!
