I only know that with Canon it was about seven years after end of manufacture when they told me "we don't service that model (S100) anymore"

How do they expect to stay in business with an attitude like that?

Just imagine if I took my 2013 Toyota in for service and they were like "sorry, we don't service that anymore." They would be sued out of existence.

It's worse than that, the S100 had "service advisory"* posted for manufacturing flaw many of them had.  *not a "recall", you had to wait till it failed before they'd fix it.  Mine failed as per the flaw, which is when I learned that didn't service it any more.  They did offer me 10% off a new camera as part of their "customer loyalty(stupidity) program"

What me, bitter?
