The New EOS Inspector 2 App for MacOS, Get an Accurate Shutter Count for Canon Cameras

By Canon Rumors | July 23, 2018 | Third Party Software

Get shutter actuations count of your Canon EOS camera!

EOS Inspector displays a shutter actuations count of your Canon EOS camera, so you can easily check whether a newly purchased camera is really brand new, or how heavily used a secondhand item is. You can avoid a visit to a service center by doing the diagnostic yourself.

FEATURES

Device Overview
Important details about your camera, such as serial number, battery charge level, possible shots and firmware version are presented as soon as you connect your camera via USB cable.

Shutter Actuations Info
EOS Inspector displays a shutter actuations count along with a shutter’s rated lifespan (that varies from camera to camera) so you can easily see the percent of its wear. For modern EOS cameras Live View related actuations are also displayed.

For newer cameras you’ll get even more! Most EOS cameras released since 2015 (such as the 1D X Mark II, 5D Mark IV and 5DS) provide more details on shutter’s usage. You’ll get separate values for photos taken through the viewfinder, photos taken via the Live View and a number of Live View sessions. All these values are presented visually on the detalization bar.

Patent: LCD for Image Review While Using An EVF

Patent: LCD for Image Review While Using An EVF

By Canon Rumors | July 21, 2018 | Canon Patents

Canon News has uncovered a patent showing functionality for LCD review with EVF equipped ILCs.

We have been told in the past that Canon is working on a EVF DSLR, which makes some sense to us if the EVF is as good as what we see on the Leica SL. As Canon News points out, the patent images show a DSLR and not an EOS M camera.

From Canon News about Japan Patent Application 2018-113532:

This patent is interesting.  It discusses how to do image review and also live operation with an EVF based camera and the back LCD panel, but most interesting, is the camera suggested in the patent application.  It’s a DSLR shaped camera, and not an M designed camera.  While Canon could use any looking camera for it’s patents, usually the image of the camera, guides their intent.  In other words, I would not have expected this to be an DSLR, if they were not looking at EVF’s in DSLR form factors, but would have shown an M5 or M6 camera, it’s not as if Canon doesn’t have those images floating around.
