Hey,

I keep seeing people talk about shutter count, I have an older 7D as was wondering how you check the shutter count on it?

Keep in mind I am somewhat technologically challenged.

Thanks.

You can pay for it: http://www.eoscount.co​m/ (external link) but if you can find downloads for astrojargon/eosinfo, you can do it free: http://noelphotography​.blogspot.com …ter-count-on-windows.html (external link).

If you have a linux system, you can use an imaging utility to do it as well, I believe.

Would a shutter count of 76k be unreasonable for this body? I'm trying to sell mine. It is in excellent working condition. But I'm getting a lot of flak for the shuttet count. People assume the camera will cease working at some basic number.

The MTBF for the 7D is quite high, and your camera is about at the 1/2 mark. I would personally consider that a bit high and would want the price adjusted, however a camera will fail when it fails, one could fail with 100, one could fail with 200,000.

I used EOSCount when I bought my refurb 7D last year, but I just wanted something quick and easy. Worked well for my needs. Was easy to use.


Some moments are too amazing to be ruined with words.

Thanks for the links! I will give it a try.

What is considered high for a 7D, is the shutter something that can be replaced/refurbished? If so is it worth it for an older 7D?

You are probably looking at a $300 bill to replace the shutter should it ever need it. However, shutter failures are quite rare. I would think anything up through about 50K is okay, the camera has an advertised MTBF (mean time before failure) of 150K.

Thanks TeamSpeed. I told the potential buyer I want $500 for it. If he had to buy a shutter it would be a brand new 7D for $700-800CDN. That's still cheaper than any used 7D I've seen on kijiji.

Good luck on the sale, that seems very fair.

I check my shuttercount on my 7D by looking at the MagicLantern screen.
Currently it shows 126K.
Installing MagicLantern could be somewhat of a challenge.
