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

I'm sure availability of part varies by jurisdiction.

In California, I had a device repaired which was just under 7 years old. The way this was handled, I got the impression that it was California that mandated support for 7 years, but else where in the US, I might have been out of luck.

I've definitely heard 7 years with regard to California before. That would be 7 years from original sale to me.

I really wouldn't expect much past 4 or 5 years.
