    Origin of camera

    Hi

    Is there any way of checking a camera's country of origin (not where it was made, but designated country where it is to be sold). When I took a lens to be repaired last month, the guy at the Canon repair center took one look at the serial number and knew that it was bought in Hong Kong. I assume cameras would be the same.

    I'm selling my 450D and would like to check if it was bought in Taiwan or not, as there is a big gray import market in Taiwan and the origin would affect the possible selling price since Canon charge high testing fees for gray import cameras.

    Thanks!

    Google Canon serial number lookup. There's a few places.
