so how do I check shutter count? what program is needed to do this.
Not all cameras support this. But it also helps to know what kind of camera you have.
That should work for you.
it is a 40D - sorry
so I just installed this and snaped a pic and opened it in my web browser - Now I am not sure what it the shutter count. What is it located under?
I'm at the computers at school right now, I couldn't tell you. When I get home I'll look.
as far as i know you cannot really tell how many shots your 40d has taken using software, other than the image count, but that can be reset so....
if you have a canon other than a 1d, there is no reliable way to get the shutter actuations.
Unless you send it off to canon, they can tell ya.
i really wish they would just release the software they use to tell that
Screw that, they should just release a firmware that writes shutter actuation to EXIF. That would do a lot of canon owners a favor.
But this restriction seems to be a marketing move, it makes buying canon dSLR in used market an uncertainty in terms of how much life it has left. I bet quite a few people bought new instead of used because of this.
If you take a picture in jpg, shutter release number is on the EXIF for Nikons.
