Title: Canon Shutter Actuation App for Mac
Post by: Canon Rumors on October 22, 2013, 11:55:49 AM
A Mac app to check shutter actuations
ShutterCount displays the number of shutter actuations (the shutter count) of your Canon EOS digital camera. 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.

The app 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.

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 turned off as it blocks the USB port when turned on!

Supported cameras:

Please quit all applications that might connect to your camera (e.g. Canon EOS Utility, Capture One, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom) before launching ShutterCount.

The app is $1.99 until the end of October.

http://www.gphoto.org/ (http://www.gphoto.org/) does it for free.

If you need a detailed howto, check out my blog post http://www.twam.info/software/read-out-canon-eos-7d-shuttercount-on-os-x (http://www.twam.info/software/read-out-canon-eos-7d-shuttercount-on-os-x).

http://www.gphoto.org/ (http://www.gphoto.org/) does it for free.

When I look at the 1700 cameras that gphoto2 supports, I don't see the 1D X listed...  This new app appears to support all recent Canon bodies.

EOSInfo (40D Shutter Count on the Mac) doesn't work for 1-series bodies, either.

for under $2 this app is great ... just bought and installed it ... I don't really like the "free" apps, coz there is no such thing as "free" ... most of these free apps are leaches that leave adverts and eat into my bandwidth. Thanks CR for sharing the info.

Wow, and now you just offended the entire open source developer community.

You have no idea how much open source software powers just about every piece of technology you use everyday. Even Microsoft and Apple make great use of open source technologies in both Windows, and Mac OS. This page, for instance, lists all the open source software used in Mac OS, and the same is true for iOS (iPhone, iPad): http://www.opensource.apple.com/release/mac-os-x-1084/ (http://www.opensource.apple.com/release/mac-os-x-1084/)

Use Android? 100% free and open source. I bet Canon uses a lot of open source tools to develop the firmware for its cameras, and probably parts of the firmware itself are based on open source projects.

It was very ignorant of you to say that most free software is a trojan horse, a scam.

I don't know about "the entire open source developer community" being offended ... but you certainly seem to be offended. Yes I have used several Android devices and my current phone is a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and I'm pretty well aware of open source. But it seems like you don't understand the difference between what is most free apps and the "entire open source developer community" ...

OK, now this is interesting.

I recently bought a brand new 650D (on sale) for my sister. I know I only took a single picture with the camera, yet it shows 73 actuations. "Well, maybe you didn't buy a brand new camera.", you say, "It's a 650D, after all".

Well, that's what I thought at first ("those Best Buy b*st*rds!"). But I also have a new 70D, which I bought the day it arrived at the store. They are a well-respected seller, I have no reason to believe my 70D may have been used before they sold it to me. Yet, I've shot 3192 pictures and 49 movies with it so far (3241 files in total), but the shutter counter says 3290.

Is it normal/expected/possible that cameras leave the factory with some actuations on them already? Quality assurance testing, maybe? What's your experience?

Yup. I'd actually be worried if my camera arrived without anyone bothering to see if it works! You can't buy a new car with 0 miles on the clock for similar reasons.

Post by: viggen61 on October 23, 2013, 12:26:18 PM
I checked my 7D with this app last night. Over 60k activations! That's 20k a year so far...

The total reported by the app and the serial of the last photo taken on mine (e.g. the "-XXXX") differ about 25. Or maybe 1,025... Anyway, not enough that I worried about it, and many can be attributed to the few videos I've taken with it, which do NOT show up in the shutter count reported by the App (apparently Canon can actually access the number of "mirror activations", but not this app.).

13.5k on my 3 year old 7
6k on my 18 month old t3i
M wouldn't give away it's secrets.

Video count would probably add a good few k to the 7 and the t3i.

All it really tells me is that I need to shoot more time lapse.

I emailed support and got a prompt reply saying 1D4 will be added in the next update, very soon she promised.

But do I really want to know?

Really easier than the old way of processing, by paying 1.80 each time you wanna know your shutter count.

141 000 for my 5D2.

I'm not a professional photographer, its a hobby ... plus I have 2 other cameras that I use ... on an average I make 50 images a day and 5D MK III accounts for around 21 of those ... I consider it not too bad for a hobbyist. :)

I've also got a 50D and, rather dimly, bought the App without checking the list of supported cameras. When I tried it, it didn't work. Surprise surprise. Finding the 50D wasn't supported, I contacted the app website, Dire Studio, and asked if they had any plans to support the 50D retrospectively. Apparently they have but need some beta testing. I'm going to have a go at helping out. I'm sure they would be glad to hear from other 50D owners who'd also like to help.

The app appears to work fine.  I used it on my 7D, 5D2, 5D3 and 1DX.  However, since my 1DX is fairly new, I know the exact count from looking at my file name sequence.  This app is underestimating by about 1000 shots.  However, even the built in shutter count on the 1DX is not reading properly.  My real file count is 4400, the app reports around 3500 and the 1DX menu shows <4000 so obviously even the internal count isn't right and that is what the program reads.  However, as a general measure it seems to be fairly accurate probably reading the camera correctly but it seems the camera itself doesn't store the data accurately.

It's kind-of strange they don't support the 50D, as I know for a fact the code to check this value is identical to the code you use to check it on a lot of other EOS cameras ... :)

Hi,

The cause of your shutter count discrepancy is how Canon's firmware counts actuations. There are two numbers: a non-volatile count and a session (volatile) count (a session is the time interval between power-offs). What we display is the non-volatile count. When you power on the camera the session count is zeroed. It is incremented during the session and added to the non-volatile count when you turn the power off. If power gets cut abruptly, then the camera fails to do a proper shutdown and will not add the session count to the non-volatile count - resulting in "missing" shots.

When you remove the battery the first thing the camera does after detecting that the battery door is open is to shut itself down properly. The time it takes to fully open the door is usually enough for the shutdown. So it's hard to cause an abrupt power cut this way. But when the battery runs too low during shooting, it might not provide enough power for a proper shutdown. Or the easiest way to reproduce this phenomenon is to power the camera with a DC adapter and just pull the plug.

Hope that this clarifies the situation.

Cheers,
Agnes

This kinda makes sense.

So if I bought refurbished, I should expect the app to report actuations even if the in camera counter says 0?  I've always thought the in camera counter was like an odometer in a car but I guess canon can always reset it.

Curious. Where does the app get the "Owner name" info ? I have  captured my name in  camera (as Author) but it does not show in the app.

Hi All,

The new version of the app is available. You asked, we added the following cameras: 1D Mark IV, 50D and 550D/Rebel T2i/Kiss X4.

Cheers,

I've just updated my version 1.0 to version 1.1 (a free upgrade via the App Store) and it now works like a dream with my 50D.

Thanks ever so Agnes and Laszlo for developing a really useful (and very reasonably priced) application.

Is my shuttercount.com as accurate as this app? Or does this app do more than my shuttercount.com?

When you remove the battery the first thing the camera does after detecting that the battery door is open is to shut itself down properly.

Battery door? 1DX what battery door or any other real camera "1D series"???

For those of you who own FoCal (any version), it includes a feature to show you shutter count.  It seems like a lot of people don't know about it, so I thought I'd share.  Here's the info on it:

Hi iKenndac.
Actually it is more likely true that you can't buy a new car with zero miles because it was delivered to a different dealer, but because you selected skybluepink with aircon and a spare wheel not a tube of gunge it had to be driven by an uncaring delivery oik whose only interest was how fast he could get it to your dealer and get home! Sorry to burst yer bubble on that one!

Cheers, Graham.

You can't buy a new car with 0 miles on the clock for similar reasons.
