As we’ve previously shared in this post, camera insurance, manufacturer’s warranty, and Ted’s Total Care Packages offer three different types of protection for your photography gear. Manufacturer’s warranty is usually valid for between 1 and 5 years, and covers technical support, firmware upgrades, and some repairs. It typically comes with a long list of exclusions, and does not tend to include camera service.
Similarly, camera insurance offers financial compensation if your camera is stolen or damaged in certain circumstances, but does not include camera servicing/cleaning. Many camera insurance policies are also accompanied by a list of exclusions.
