ShutterCount displays the number of shutter actuations (the shutter count) of your Canon EOS digital camera - click “...More” for the complete list of supported cameras. The shutter count is read directly from a USB-connected camera, and thus provides accurate numbers that are not attainable with simple EXIF-based methods.
With ShutterCount you can easily check whether a newly purchased camera is really new, or check how heavily used a pre-owned item is. And you can save a trip to a Canon Service Center by doing the reading for yourself.
ShutterCount provides unlimited readings for an unlimited number of cameras, so you can freely track actual camera usage. Even if you work for a rental house or just lend a camera to a friend.
ShutterCount only displays the shutter count for still photos - video clips recorded are not included in the number. For a separate mirror movement reading (that includes videos) you should consult an authorized Canon Service Center.
History logging allows you to track camera usage. Logs are stored in CSV format that can be imported into Apple's Numbers or Microsoft Excel for further processing.
Note: for the best compatibility with your camera it is recommended to upgrade the camera's firmware to the latest available version.
WiFi on the EOS 6D and 70D MUST BE DISABLED as it blocks the USB port when enabled!

ShutterCount is certified to work with all of the cameras listed above, using their latest firmware revision.
The app tries to retrieve shutter count information for other non-certified Canon EOS digital cameras with a DIGIC III or newer processor (with the exception of the EOS-1D Mark III and EOS-1Ds Mark III).
The EOS-1D X Mark II, 5DS, 5DS R, 5D Mark IV, 80D, 750D / Rebel T6i / Kiss X8i, 760D / Rebel T6s / 8000D and 1300D / Rebel T6 / Kiss X80 cameras do not provide shutter count information. It seems that Canon has removed the shutter count functionality from the remote control interface.
The EOS-1D Mark III and EOS-1Ds Mark III as well as older Canon EOS digital cameras do not provide shutter count information through the USB port and thus ARE NOT SUPPORTED.
Please quit all applications that might connect to your camera (e.g. Canon EOS Utility, Kuuvik Capture, Capture One, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom) before launching ShutterCount.

3 smackers is a small price to pay when you’re selling a 1,000 smacker camera!
I was hesitant to use Black Lantern on my camera b/c I didn’t want to brink the thing. So I spend the $3 for this super simple, quick app. Work like a champ on my EOS 6D. I’m trying to sell this body, and everyone kept asking the shutter count. 3 smackers is a small price to pay when you’re selling a 1,000 smacker camera.
Quick and easy
I have a 5D Mark II it took less than 5 minutes to read it. Good price and efficient.
I have my Canon 60D for sale. Recent query about shutter count had me surfing to find out how to retrieve the info. Many convoluted options out there!! Then I came across a blogger who mentioned the Shutter Count App. If you knew ahead of time how incredibly simple and fast this app was, there would be absolutely no quibbling over it’s price!! Thank you for making this a no brainer!!!!
