Find 5d mk2 shutter count
« on: October 27, 2017, 05:02:46 AM »
Hi!

In bit of a hurry, is there any way to check shuttercount of the 5d2 on a Mac? I’ve tried everything I found but everything just shows, “no info”.

Thanks!

Thanks a lot! I’ve sent the link to my dad, so now begins the task of getting him to use it correctly  :D

Never had any success with these third party shutter count programs for the 5DII.

However as the camera can't shoot like a machine gun I've never really worried about shutter count !

I'm also curious, what's considered a really high shutter count?
