Hi, I recently bought a used canon 5D classic on a Ebay and im really pleased with it. However I have a few days with it before I can say im keeping it or sending it back. The picture number on the back was 9980, i've shot the remaining 20 shots to see if it goes up or resets, i've now noticed that the file number is " 101-0003 " does this mean my camera has passed the 9999 mark 100 times? I can't see any 101 on the exif either. I've tried finding software to find the exact shutter count but without success. In an ideal world i'd send to canon to check but my timeframe doesn't allow it. Is the folder number 100 the default after a reset, and has anyone managed to find out another way of finding the shutter count?
That's just a folder name and it resets every 9999+1, if you want to see the number of acutations the shutter has go here:
