Canon Camera Serial Number Decoder [Extra Quality]


A Canon warranty appropriate for your region should be provided. For EOS R, the box should contain a Product Serial Number Card with the product serial number printed on it.The serial number on the product, box and card should match.




Canon Camera Serial Number Decoder



The product with the serial number that you provided was not originally intended by Canon for sale in the European Economic Area; we therefore advise you to contact the seller from whom you originally purchased this product. Please check the "Where to Buy" section on our website to find a local retailer to source a Canon product intended for sale in your region. If you remain unsure about the origin of your Canon Imaging product, simply send the model name and serial number to ipr.info@canon-europe.com.*Note : this serial number checker is valid for products put on the market from 2015 onwards


Be very thorough when you look for serial numbers. As you can see in the image above where the number is on the lens barrel, they can be quite faint and hard to find. There might also be some other manufacturing numbers, so your best bet is to just record everything if you have any doubts.


And one last tip. When you buy new gear and decide to throw away the box, grab a pair of scissors, cut out the part with the serial number and other information, and stick it in a file folder somewhere.


Go to Canon USA's service site and initiate a service/repair order. They require you to enter the model and serial number. If Canon accepts this information and allows you to proceed with the order you should have a model that is serviceable in the USA. You can then abort the process. If the camera comes with a USA warranty card and the seller has 100% feedback, I would feel OK about pulling the trigger. I have done very well on eBay, but then again I am very prudent.


i looked at the link you posted and it is very likely that it is a grey market camera! but if it is new and made by canon, i personally wouldn't mind getting it! in fact i am planning to get a 5DsR from that place some time soon in the future. YMMV.


The data item in the 20D Exif metadata reported by Exifer as "Unknown 11" carries in its second and third subfields what Canon calls the "image serial number" (e.g., 123-2345 for file 123CANON\IMG_2345.jpg).


Nikon for a long time used the first digit of the serial number to indicate region for many of their products (all the way back into the film SLR era). Traditionally, that first digit was used by Nikon like this:


Note: Nikon never changed the number of digits in most product serial numbers, which as product quantities increased during the early digital age, caused Nikon to have to abandon the clear logic they formerly used and which the above table suggests.


A few products, most notably the low volume top end pro cameras, use only the Japan-based serial numbers. Thus, you can have a D3 with a 20xxxxx serial number no matter where in the world you bought it (curiously, the D5 reverted back to the regional numbering system).


So where we stand is this: older gear clearly follows the original numbering practice in the table shown at the top of this page. The latest gear is much more complicated in how serial numbers are used. That said, a serial number with 0 as the second digit is almost always allocated according to the table, above.


Canon Date CodesBecause they are chronological, serial numbers usually do tell the approximateage of a Canon SLR or SLR lens, but Canon Inc. has never put out any sort ofpublic information about serial numbers. However, the is another way to get the informationabout a camera body or lens. For cameras, lookinside the body's film chamber for an alphanumeric code printed in black ink onthe black surface of the film chamber. You may have to hold the camera under astrong light to see it. What you'll see is a date code, possibly something like"U1140F."The first letter tells the year the camera was manufactured: in this case,1980. It's an alphabetic code; A = 1960, B = 1961,....T = 1979, U = 1980, andso on up to Z = 1985. The next 2 numbers tell you what month the camera wasmade, in this example, November. (the leading zero for the month code issometimes omitted, so an A-1 with a code of "Y362" would have been manufacturedin March, 1984, for instance.) The following 2 numbers are an internal codethat is irrelevant for determining age, but year and month is close enoughanyway, IMO. (This internal code is also occasionally omitted based on reportsfrom Canon owners.) The last letter stands for the name of the factory. In thiscase, "F" stands for Fukushima which was the main Canon SLR factory for about20 years from the early 70s until 1991. (The factory code is rarely omitted, ifever.) So a body with the Code "U1140F" was made in November of 1980 at the Fukushima factory.Starting in 1986, the year code was restarted with "A" again, but the factorycode was placed before it. Now that Canon SLRs are no longer manufactured atFukushima, you're more likely to see a code starting with "O" for Oita. So, forSLRs manufactured in 1994, you might see a code starting with "OI" followed bythe month code. Letter Year A 1986, 1960 B 1987, 1961 C 1988, 1962 D 1989, 1963 E 1990, 1964 F 1991, 1965 G 1992, 1966 H 1993, 1967 I 1994, 1968 J 1995, 1969 K 1996, 1970 L 1997, 1971 M 1998, 1972 N 1999, 1973 O 2000, 1974 P 2001, 1975 Q 2002, 1976 R 2003, 1977 S 2004, 1978 T 2005, 1979 U 2006, 1980 V 2007, 1981 W 2008, 1982 X 2009, 1983 Y 2010, 1984 Z 2011, 1985 The same type of code is printed on the back of many (but not all) EF lenses aswell, typically in small white characters on a black baffle in the rear lensmount. Normally it will read somethings like "UT0308". The "U" is the factory, the "T" is theyear of manufacture (2005), the "03" is the month (March) and the final two numbers seem to besome sort of internal Canon code. Priorto 1986 the lens date codes did not include the factory letter. Copyright Bob Atkins All Rights Reservedwww.bobatkins.com


All Hasselblad cameras and film magazines, as well as some other Hasselblad items, bear a two or three letter code in front of, or incorporated into, the serial number. Two of these letters are used to encrypt the year of manufacture.The key to translate these letters to digits is the word VHPICTURES, in which "V" stands for 1, "H" = 2, etc.


Items that do not have a serial number plus date code obviously can not be dated using the system described above.Sometimes dates, coded or even uncoded, appear inside products, scribbled in pencil on the inside of housings, etc. But taking, for instance, a prism finder apart just to look for an indication when the item was produced is perhaps not a very good idea.


Zeiss serial numbers do not contain coded information about when a lens was made. Serial numbers therefor can only be used to date lenses if we have some way to link serial numbers to years. Tables doing just that are compiled by collecting serial numbers of specific lenses together with information about when these lenses were first bought.Such tables, providing the best estimates available, can be found in Richard Nordin's "Hasselblad System Compendium".You can, of course, also type in the serial number of your lens into the tiny utility on the top left hand side of this page.
