Show your Battle Scars! - Show your shutter counts!
« on: September 15, 2012, 10:53:58 PM »
I just did a shutter count on my 1.5 Year old 7D. Its been through quite a bit in a year and a half.

Its almost half-way through its life.  :(

Is this a commercial to help the owner of EOS count run up sales of his $1.49 a whack service :)
For many cameras (Not 7D, or 1D series), EOS Info is free, and has a Mac Version as well.

It didn't work on my Win 7 64bit system. It doesn't matter how you show it.

Also doesn't work on mac... on mac it will work on cameras up until the 50D... 7D, 5d, 1d's your SOL. 
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.

No easy way to get accurate shutter count on many Canon bodies.  My 1DX is a few months old and has ~100K actuations.  Shooting sports, I can put 30K on it in a weekend.  No big deal. Shutters were meant to be replaced.  ;D

I haven't gotten that to work on any of my bodies in years.

Maybe it's not, my dad has a Rebel going strong, over 150,000 now, it's luck of the draw.

My 5D2 is 42,000 and my 7D is 25,000.
Not sure about my 5D3 don't need to measure that one yet.

Magic Lantern on my T1i shows that I have about a 32k shutter count + 8k live view so about 40k shutter count in total. I'm not too worried about it anyways. If the shutter breaks, I'd probably just buy a Canon 5dc.

No need to use software for the 1d x, it tells you in the menu. Mine is between 10 and 11k.

The system status menu that shows the release cycles does not appear to be correct on mine.  It shows <20,000 and I have shot more than that on a single job.  I am not sure why it is wrong, but it is.

20k on a single job?? Did you have ten batteries then? Wow! I can't really see why it would be wrong, it seems dead on to me.
