i'm the author of this application: canon eos digital info v1.3.
I created this video tutorial to show you how to use it:
I released tow subversion, one use the Canon SDK 2.14 is for camera with Digic IV, and 5/5+. like Canon 500d, 1000d, 60d, 7d, 5d mark ii / iii...etc
The second subversion, using SDK 3.5, is for camera with digic6/6+ and newer, however it doesn't support retrieving the shutter actuation. Canon has removed some functions from there recent cameras DSLR like 80D and 5D mark IV. So, the shutter actuation reading is not supported any more due to firmware limitations. In this case, like for the Canon 5D Mark IV for example, you can try to use this subversion using sdk 3.5 instead of sdk 2.14. You can edit and read some info, but you can't read the shutter counts actuation.
If someone want to know the number of actuation on a recent camera, he must send his camera to Canon service center. Only Canon repair center can provide shutter count for these models actually. It’s a shame canon won’t allow its customers an accurate way to read shutter count.
DIGIC II and dual DIGIC III cameras are not supported. also EOS M (mirrorless) models are also not supported.
I'm very pleased that my application is interesting and helpful.
Thanks for you
