Shuttercount Now Available for Windows
« on: August 28, 2014, 03:32:42 PM »

From Dire Studio:


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.
 
History logging allows you to track camera usage. Logs are stored in CSV format that can be imported into Apple’s Numbers or Microsoft Excel for further processing. History logging is not available on Windows.


 
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:



  • Canon EOS-1D C (requires firmware 1.1.3 or later for correct serial number display)

Or just install Magic Lantern, it will show you the number of shutter actuations for free...

Yes, ShutterCount was available for OS X first.

I, for one, am happy to have a handy, dedicated utility for this price.  Not interested at this time in Magic Lantern or FoCal.  I'm sure they are great, but simplicity rules during times of job transitions, a new baby, and the whole wonderful hurricane of life!

I'll buy it the next time I sell a used body.  I've used eoscount twice... so this would be nice, having that functionality in perpetuity.
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

I can already see the shutter count on my 1DX on the camera itself...
Unfortunately I have over 250,000...  :o

Worth noting is that the shuttercounts reported by the camera do not actually appear to be completely reliable. I've done a bit of testing across various EOS models about 18 months ago and the shutter count does not always increase exactly with the number of shutter actuations. Before you ask, yes, I have tried turned the cameras off and on again and pulling the battery between actuations and readouts.

Simply put, I've seen variances up to 30% during my tests, though I'm not at all sure why sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't update. If you care about this sort of thing it is easy enough to test yourself, though I have no idea if your camera will behave the same way. Of course, for most uses even a full 30% difference isn't all that relevant, just found it curious enough to mention.

I don't buy used bodies (or I have yet), but I do sell used bodies... And if I get a reading of 10K actuations... and my customer decides to confirm that amount... I hope the camera body tells the other program the same number... regardless if it it is correct or not. 

So... have you tested the variety of programs to see if the number is the same across the board?
