DSLR and Mirrorless cameras without USB C cursed in Europe?

3 months 3 days ago #760619 by EOS_Fan
I was reading that starting in December of 2024 all electronic items in EU need to have USB C charging.  Considering most camera companies are phasing out DSLRs, will any spend on modifying what few DSLRs they have left to meet the new laws?  Mirrorless possibly, but DSLRS I can't see this happening.

Aren't there excluded devices part of that whole rule?

My understanding is this only applies to new models and not existing. No modifying of existing cameras required.

Yes, the EU directive is for ALL electronics with an integral or removable battery in them.

Connie, but it still only applies on NEW electronics sold, not old.

It's unlikely that DSLR manufacturers will invest in modifying their remaining DSLR models to meet the new EU laws requiring USB-C charging for electronic items starting in December 2024. With the industry shifting towards mirrorless technology, DSLRs are becoming less common, and manufacturers may prioritize investing in newer technologies rather than updating older models.
