PowerShot Cameras

On older PowerShot cameras, the serial number of the camera is located on the bottom of the camera printed on the sticker near the tripod. This should not be confused with the model number showing above the printed serial number. The serial number will typically appear as black text within a silver box.

On newer models with a flip-up LCD screen, the sticker which includes the camera's serial number is located under the flip-up screen on the back of the camera.
