http://eoscount.com/ (external link)

EOSCount.com is a website that allows users to get an accurate shutter count for most current EOS Digital SLR's. It was originally free, but now there is a small payment required to access to shutter count.

Much later in this thread another free "copycat" website is talked about, but I would suggest avoiding it as there have been reports of "Malware" on that website.


Sorry, not ALL EOS but most current ones...

Which cameras are supported for shutter count retrieval?

Single-DIGIC III, all DIGIC IV, and some DIGIC V EOS cameras are supported. For example, shutter count can be read from the
•Rebel XS / 1000D / Kiss F
•Rebel XSi / 450D / Kiss X2
•Rebel T1i / 500D / Kiss X3
•Rebel T2i / 550D / Kiss X4
•Rebel T3 / 1100D / Kiss X50
•Rebel T5 / 1200D / Kiss X70
•Rebel T3i / 600D / Kiss X5
•Rebel T4i / 650D / Kiss X6i
•Rebel T5i / 700D / Kiss X7i
•Rebel SL1 / 100D / Kiss X7
•40D
•50D
•60D
•70D
•7D
•6D
•5D Mark II
•5D Mark III
•1D Mark IV
•1D X
•1D C

DIGIC II and dual DIGIC III cameras are not supported. For example, shutter count is not available for the original 5D (Mark I), the 1D Mark III, and the 1Ds Mark III.

Try http://eoscount.com (external link)

You'll have to use a 32-bit version of Internet Explorer and install an ActiveX control for communication with the camera. Then the control will read the shutter count from a 60D or a 7D right in the browser.

EDITED to show which cameras and which browsers are supported.....

Which browsers are supported?

32-bit Internet Explorer 5.0 and later. Firefox and Chrome are supported through the Internet Explorer tab (IE Tab). Other browsers are supported only when they can run ActiveX controls.

A browser must be 32-bit, as a 64-bit browser cannot run 32-bit ActiveX controls. The EOS Count control is 32-bit, because the Canon SDK is distributed in 32-bit version only.

The recommended browser is Internet Explorer 9.0.


I just tried this and it really works!

Serge, thank you for this great breakthrough.

Worked with 5DII, 450D, 40D. The 40D required a browser restart after reading the other two straight up.

According to the FAQ's on the download site, this will unfortunately NOT work on 5D classic.

Gave me the shutter count with 5D2 but couldn't read S/N.
After restarting browser, read both the shutter and serial correctly on 40D.

All in all, nice find, thanks for sharing!


What we see depends mainly on what we look for.

It read my 7D fine, but then I popped off a couple of shutter clicks and it took multiple restarts of IE to get it to read the camera again, which it finally did, and correctly added the additional shutter actuations. :cool:

Good little activeX plugin... Worked for my 550D. I then went back into the browser setting and removed the activeX plugin.
