The main problem with digital is not how long any digital camera can keep working, but rather, how long before the advances in technology make it obsolete in one area or another.

I have a digital camera that goes back to the early 2000's and it still works. But it is basically unuseable by today's standards.

Assuming you actually use your cameras, I would say that after about 5 years, the advances in technology will probably make upgrading a worthwhile prospect.

Precisely. Your camera will be obsolete long before it dies. Most of those Sony Mavicas with a floppy disc for storage are probably still functioning 15 years later, however I never see anyone using them.
