How To Find the Shutter Count for your Canon EOS Camera

Dave Dugdale from learningdslrvideo recorded this (revised) quick tip video on how to find out how many shutter clicks your had on your Canon EOS camera (important for example for when you want to buy or sell a camera). This piece of info is quite hard to find in Canon cameras (Nikon is easy – they have this data on each JPEG image in the EXIF so just use an exif tool such as Phil Harvey’s “ExifTool” and Opanda’s IExif or even this website).

For Canon you can try and use the shutter count tool (for windows only mind you) which you can download from this address and follow Dugdale’s very simple instructions.
