I just tried this with a 1D Mark II and although gphoto detects the camera properly when I try to get the shutter count I get this:

Please help me determine what I'm doing wrong. I boot from a USB thumb drive, enter into Fedora, get to the terminal screen, and entered the commands as written. GPhoto2 installed and updated itself by downloading some files from the internet, then I got to the part where I connect my camera (Canon 7D) and turn it on. I did that, but received no prompt identifying my camera. I then retried the commands above, removing the spaces, etc. from the "shuttercounter" command, but nothing worked. Please see the errors indicated in the photos. I'm running Windows 7 Home premium on a PC.

Thanks!

Nevermind. I found a better and faster solution, that took all of 2 minutes to download and receive my shutter count. The software is free; just decline the toolbars, etc. (junk) that it asks you to install with it. I declined all of the junk, and the shutter count software works great, very easy, and best of all, it's free. I scanned it with Norton, and it's fine. Here's the link:

I hope this helps others. Now I know the used 7D shutter count stated by the seller was correct.

That site doesn't exactly look reputable. Poor, broken english, no way to directly upload a photo without installing software (even though the comments say you could in the past). Very sketchy. Use at your own risk. I'm not even sure what you're supposed to click on to download their software. And passing one AV check doesn't fill me with confidence.

You must have missed a step above, as I've seen that error before. I guess it doesn't matter though, since you found a solution that works for you.  :p

Hi there, I know it's been quite a while since this thread started. I followed all the instruction last night and was able to communicate with my second hand Canon 1D mark iii which I recently bought. I have used Fedora 21 and gphoto2 as per software. I can see it does recognize the Canon 1D mark iii, but does not return anything to "gphoto2 --get-config=/main/status/sh​attercounter" command.
Any help greatly appreciated.

If I recall, it didn't work with my 1d3. Certain bodies, you just have to send in to canon to get an accurate count... There are a few services that claim to provide an accurate reading if you pay them money--no idea if they actually work.

Nice catch hawkeye :D My mind completely glossed over the user input. In any case, I'm fairly certain the 1d3 isn't compatible with gphoto2. I sent mine into canon for a readout prior to selling, and I never would have done that if I was successful with gphoto2.
