Great instructions. Just found out my 2 year old 7D has shutter count of 35389. I'm happy with that.

Also, I had trouble recognising my camera at first. Error (-105: 'Unknown model')

But I guessed my external hard drive was confusing gphoto2. After disconnecting it and leaving only my 7D connected, I was able to connect to my camera and determine it's shutter count.

I think the bottom line is that this is impossible with the 5D "classic". Not with gphoto2 or anything else - the camera simply does not make this information available via the USB interface. (I'm getting that mostly from this thread)

Also, there appears to be this hasslefree method which was recently posted:
https://photography-on-the.net …2&highlight=shu​tter+count

I haven't tried it myself--I just know from firsthand experience that I've gotten readings for my 7d/60d using gphoto2

MOkoFOko, I never got gphoto to respond with a shuttercount even though it detected the cameras, but this link worked like a champ.
I was able to confirm it was accurate since I'd used eosinfo on the 40D, and the results matched. Thank you for the link!


Regards,
Steve

This is correct--there is absolutely no way to get an actuation reading for a 5D mk1. Everything has been tried. The only option is to send it to canon for a repair history and shutter count reading.

Just installed the LiveCd for Fedora (for other reasons) and thought I'd check out this thread.

The "Supported cameras" page (external link) says it does work with the 5dc. Is that new?

Will try it tonight on mine.

I doubt it will work. They are saying that gphoto2 can talk to a 5Dc. Meaning it can get photos off it, at least. But the 5Dc will not report its shutter count, as far as I know.

Your right. I just tested the XTi and 5Dc (in PC and PTP mode) and it does talk to the camera but can't get the shutter count.

It has been commented on elsewhere, and it will not provide a readout for a 5Dc. It is one of the few bodies that is a mystery to all but Canon.

I'm going to have to give this a go, I have an old Mac Mini G4 (10.4) so it can't run any of the port applications. :(

Agree - but was hoping anyway. Both the guys building the hack for the 5dc and my self (using the SDK) have been unable to get to that counter.

Probably not worth the effort. If you have a paid CPS membership and send it in with your cleaning coupon, you can get a readout for free. Just ends up costing you the $10 to ship to them.

Not actually looking for it for me. As I mentioned I write software for remote control of EOS cameras (and others as well). There was a requirement from a customer to compare shutter count before and after flight - they use UAVs for geologic surveys. And I only have a 5D and XTi in my development lab.

Neato, I wish you luck then. But it would probably be better to just invest in practically any other body--since it's only the 5D, and the early non-1D/1Ds Digic I/II bodies that cannot be read.

Yeah, as soon as I get my programming hobby to subsidise my photography hobby - maybe an upgrade in my future.

Just tried it and glad to say it worked with a XSi, T3i, and 60D. Though for some weird reason it was unable to identify the T3i when doing an auto detect, it was listed as a generic USB camera.

Thanks for the walkthrough MOkoFOko! :D

EDIT: Also flawless with my 7D today.
