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.

What's New in Version 1.4
The app now tries to retrieve shutter count information for 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).
Worked as expected!
Just plug your camera into your Mac via the camera's USB cable and bam! There's the shutter count! Great and necessary when selling on eBay!
Yep, it does work
As with Denny Crane, I thought it silly that I would have to purchase a third party app just to see my Mark II’s shutter count (come on, Canon!) But nothing else worked. Bought ShutterCount, opened the app, plugged in the camera to my Mac Pro, and 15 seconds later I had my shutter count. Nice when something works as advertised.
Works for all 3 of my Canons
Gave me an accurate count on a 7D, an XSI (450D) and an SL1. Nothing else I could find would do it. Not the fanciest thing i’ve ever seen but it WORKS and keeps a record so you can track the use of all your cameras. Better yet, there is NO LIMIT to the number of cameras you can check, bring it with you when shopping used and know exactly how well used that bargain camera may really be. An easy five star rating.
