Though Canon is known to produce reliable products, registering for your camera's warranty can protect you in the case of malfunction and provide you with a series of benefits. Registering your product with Canon creates a product record that can be utilised for insurance claims in case of theft, and it creates a record of your purchase for warranty claims. Canon does recognise warranties on unregistered products, but your must retain your receipt and serial number to verify your purchase.
