The no-nonsense shutter actuations count reader.
Whether you are buying a used Canon EOS camera or just giving attention to your existing photo gear it is sometimes useful to know how many shots a particular camera has taken.
The modern DSLR’s shutter has pretty big, but still limited resource, that varies in 100,000–150,000 shots range. Unfortunately, for some reason Canon decided to hide the diagnostic info from user’s eye.
That’s where EOS Inspector comes into play! Download the app and connect your Canon EOS camera via USB cable to get accurate shutter actuations count measurement.
For information about camera compatibility please refer to the support page.
What's New in Version 1.1.0
• improved compatibility with latest macOS versions
I was worried because of the negative reviews, however I had wasted about two hours with different Windows utilities and other nonsense trying to get shutter counts on my 5Dmkii and 7D. I figured I would gamble the $2 price. This utility works PERFECTLY and gave me exatly what I wanted, and exactly what several other methods failed to do.
I was, hower, careful to check the list of supported cameras on the publisher’s website (or read reviews of camers that have worked). I see a lot of people trying this app with older cameras that are not supported. If your camera is on the list of supported cameras, this program will work and it works very well.
Works on 6D
Works just fine on Canon 6D. With camera off, attached USB cable, turned camera on, started app, it showed serial number, battery status and shutter count.
Other places on the internet say that you have to have wifi on the camera disabled for the shutter count to be displayed, so try that if you are having problems.
worked for Canon 5D MK3
I was a little hesitant because of the mixed reviews, but the count seems plausible and does go up correctly when I take more photos.
It also displayed the correct serial number.
