Just wondering how to determine how many times I've fired the shutter on this camera and thinking of purchasing an upgrade, possibly a used 50d so I can compare.

I'm a little confused. Are you saying you're thinking of buying a 50D in order to compare it with your 20D?

Won't work with a 20D, there is no way to get that info from it. The only way is to use the folder and image number count, but that will only work if you have always used continuous numbering and never put a card in with a different count on it.

It's a pity you can't find out the number of actuations but I wouldn't worry. I've got an old 20D kicking around that still works fine, so get your 50D and, after you've compared it with your 20D, either sell the 20D or hang on to it as a back-up. When it eventually breaks down, either sell it on for spares or throw it in the trash.

Sandpiper is right. There is no way to tell shutter count on those bodies. At least none that I have ever heard of.
