    I haven't looked into Canon, I was looking into Nikon and Minolta at the time...
    Usually they want you to service it in the country you bought it - lots of times
    the regs are different as well, and electrical parts accepted in one country
    aren't in the other. I've seen equipment for the USA market, marked 'not legal
    for sale in Canada'.

    Speaking of warranties - my Nikon just went bust 2 months after it expired...
    good timing by Nikon...

    Yup, it sucks, but it's a fact of life. Furthermore, this is not only Canon.
    I bought a Citizen watch in Aruba. It's not covered in Canada. Same for
    Panasonic.
    It seems many brands, if not most do this.
    Moral of this story, buy in your own country.
    Take care,
    Marcel

    The only time where this would be OK is if the product is sold as both a
    "retail" version and a version specifically intended to be incorporated
    into another product (often called an "OEM" version). In that case, the
    service of the entire device is left up to the seller, including the
    times when just a part breaks down.

    For the type of cameras we are talking about, though, I don't think this
    can *ever* happen. For cameras that might be used in a home security
    system (as an example), then you could see it occur.

    In almost every state in the US, there are laws that say that if the
    product is intended for sale in the US, then whatever warranty the
    manufacturer offers for purchases from an "authorized" dealer applies to
    *all* new purchases of that product.

    In other words, if the camera is a US version, then it has a US warranty
    if it is purchased new from a US retailer, regardless of any manufacturer
    statements to the contrary.

    The shop is liable for liaising with the manufacturer/supplier (you dont
    have to but sometimes skanky shops give you no choice), the manufacturer is
    responsible to fix the fucking thing if it is faulty, how hard is that to
    understand?
