It really depends on the warranty! I bought a 3 year plan for my sony FX1 that covers everything for three years. The plan cost me $160 which I think is well worth it. When I say it covers everything, I mean everything. If I drop my cam in a fountain, they will ship me a replacement/loaner the next day. If the tape heads go bad within 3 years, they will put new in. If the lcd screen gets jacked by some drunk dude at a reception, they will put a new one on. I do weddings, and the wear and tear the camera will take in 3 years warrents a $160 fee to cover my butt.
