I've helped run many sites over the years - and I think it is super cheesy to allow that type of advertising on a PAID site. It is not completely out of his control - it is something he chooses to allow on his site. The revenue stream from the ads will be very small except for the people who are fooled into clicking on them (i.e. false download buttons). And if the ad is well designed - it should be easy to fool people so you can't really blame those who are tricked.

Wrong!

Hi Alan,
a camera paid for unlimited readings will work with either the Windows or Mac clients, but only if its serial number is unique. Cameras that can't be identified uniquely can only work with the Windows client. For Canon 5D Mark III, the latest firmware (1.2.1) restores the proper serial number. After firmware upgrade, connect once to the Windows client (having logged in) in order for the Mac client to recognize the paid camera with its "new" serial number.

Thanks! It now works great. By the way I have had absolutely no problems with ads from this site.

Ads help lower reading prices. There are people complaining about the paid nature of the site (however small the price is) and wanting more ads!

I actually think that the ultimate responsibility with using any product relies on the user. If a user chooses not to read the instructions, then they should accept responsibility for unintended consequences (you can't save everyone from themselves).

The control seems to be working just fine for me when connecting my T1i, however I do not see the link to PayPal anywhere.

I never use IE so I don't have any blockers installed, and if IE is allowing the Active-X control I should see the link correct?

I've tried a reboot of both browser and laptop but nothing has changed. Is it necessary to register before seeing the link?

Actually, what I was saying was that I don't have (enough) control over the content of the ads that are served. I do have control over the binary decision whether to allow or block all the ads. So for "I think it is super cheesy to allow that type of advertising on a PAID site" - I don't choose the type of advertising; it's Google that chooses that. I've blocked all individual ads with bad reputation and all publisher accounts that seem to serve them.

You have to realize that bad ads are a minority, despite the impression you might get from this thread. Users write about bad ads only, even if there are 1-2% of those. It is an overkill to block all the ads, if most of them are helpful and non-invasive.

As soon as I've learned about inappropriate ads from people on this thread, I went ahead and blocked them in all ways that I could figure out and think of.

Hi Richard,
sometimes an antivirus or a security program disables all ActiveX options or tightens security too much from system defaults. If you have one, I would temporarily disable it and see if that helps. The link to PayPal is actually controlled by the scripting option that is described in the last FAQ item (external link).

I just used this one, which is free (although paypal donations can be given)

you run it from your computer, but nothing is installed. Works a treat. I'm almost 25% through my camera (5d2) at 35,000 photos to date.

That site seems to work by evaluating an uploaded jpeg???
Can anyone confirm that it is accurate? I can't see how the jpeg file can give shutter count info (and not just the shutter count since the last time battery was removed and replaced).

Edit: Nevermind, the uploading jpeg file seems to be for Nikon cameras. The download for the Canon is an executable.

Just tested it and it works great. Simple stand-alone program and nothing to install. No need for Active-X, flash, JAVA, etc. Doesn't try to dial home or access internet either. Works on my 64-bit Windows 7.

Thanks for the link. Handy program to have for the rare need.

this is a very interesting program... I literally just bought (rebought) a new canon 60d and i tested this program out.. I literally took 2 shots w/ it.. then I wanted to test out the shutter count........ and it said.. 2....... I dont know if I should be happy because that is a good sign as it is brand new.. but I also always had the idea that there was atleast 1-50 shutter counts already when you buy a new camera b/c of testing? or i could be wrong!

I have been tackling 'eoscount' for the past 24 hours and have had no luck with it.

I have paid and it has acknowledged I have 'credit' and it has identified my camera.

The problem is its asking for more money to 'Buy now'.

I would really appreciate anyones help.

Thanks
