How To Find Out Canon Cameras Shutter Count

Dave Dugdale of Learning DSLR Video has put out a helpful clip on how to find out the actuation counts of your Canon DSLR camera. First, you download the free software from It is only available for Windows based PCs. The following Canon DSLRs are supported : 1000D, 1100D, 450D, 500D, 550D, 600D, 650D, 40D, 50D, 60D, 7D, 5DMkII, 5D MkIII, 1D MkIV, 1D X.

There is a competing product from Dire Studio called ShutterCount. It also displays the number of shutter actuations for Canon EOS digital cameras only. The shutter count is read directly from a USB-connected camera, and provides more accurate numbers than with the simple EXIF-based methods.
