Re: "Obsolete" cameras: is it a serious concern?

Right to repair is a pretty new concept for household goods.     I don't know if any cameras are included.   Just washers, refrigerators, dryers in the EU for example

Washers, dryers and fridges used to be designed to last a lot longer than they are now.   Legislation became helpful for us consumers.

If I remember correctly there were Nissan cars that were being rendered unusable after three years when fuel tank filler tubes were breaking and Nissan was not making any replacement parts.   So now there is legislation requiring car manufacturers continue making repair parts for some number of years after the last model is sold as new.
