*** The original and only Mac shutter count reader that works with all new Canons ***

ShutterCount displays the number of shutter actuations (the shutter count) of your Canon EOS, Nikon or Pentax digital camera - see the complete list of supported models below. The shutter count is read directly from a USB or Wi-Fi connected Canon EOS DSLR, and from image files for Nikon and Pentax cameras.

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 service center by doing the reading for yourself.

ShutterCount provides unlimited readings for your cameras.

The app displays the count for still photos by default - purchase the optional Live View Pack to get additional counters that also cover videos. The Live View Pack is available as an in-app purchase for select Canon models.

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.

The optional Plus Pack enables additional features: shutter count graphing & forecasting, history log duplicate removal, camera date/time synchronization (Canon only) and outdated firmware version warning (Canon only). The Plus Pack is available as an in-app purchase.

Note: for the best compatibility with your camera it is recommended to upgrade the camera's firmware to the latest available version.

Useless for a Nikon D750 on a iMac computer


Using a USB cord plugged into my iMac, took a photo with my Nikon D750, as per instructions & was unable to retrieve a file with image info. Tried this 3 ties. Useless product!! BTW, for any Nikon camera on an iMac, the “Preview” app will provide necessary info using the Tools, the Show Inspector, click on the Nikon tab which provides the Shutter Count.

Developer Response

As communicated in the app description, in the Getting Started Guide, on the app's main screen as well as in the message that pops up when you connect your camera, Nikon cameras are supported in File Mode. That is, you need to open a photo made with the camera. To open that photo, you can use File > Open, drag & drop or automated memory card scanning. These methods are all described in the Getting Started Guide (available from the Help menu). But you must use File Mode - the app will not work if you continue to try to use it in the wrong way. The USB interface is for Canons only. While Preview is capable of extracting the counter, ShutterCount provides automatic memory card scanning and ejection as well as easy drag & drop interfaces that greatly simplify the reading process for those who need to work with a large number of cameras. Like used camera shops and rental companies. Not to mention the history logging and percentage of shutter rating display that make ShutterCount far more advanced than Preview's capabilities in this regard.
