Canon is reinforcing its commitment to high levels of service with the announcement of a two year warranty on all EOS-1D and Cinema EOS camera bodies, providing photographers and filmmakers with outstanding cover, free of charge.
The offer consists of a one-year extension on top of the one-year Standard European Warranty System (EWS), under identical terms and conditions, and is absolutely free of charge. This gives photographers a total warranty period of two years from date of first purchase.
The two-year warranty is valid on products originally distributed by Canon within the EU countries plus Lichtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. To be able to claim the additional year of warranty you must have purchased the product in one of these countries.
This extended warranty will apply to cameras like the Cinema EOS C300 Mark II and the recently announced EOS-1D X Mark II. Wonder why Canon is not extending the warranty outside Europe at this time. My readers know I have owned the EOS-1 series of cameras since 1989, when they were first introduced. In all the years I have owned them, there was never any problems in the first two years, provided they are properly cared for and serviced. After that, things can go wrong, as with any mechanical and electronic parts. You can see my equipment bag and works on MichaelDanielHo.com
