I am debating if I should keep or sell my 5DMKIII camera with battery grip and Kirk plate, I need to know if I send a RAW image the buyer, can he check the actuation count? I know I have less than 100 pictured but I have to prove. Don't know if ebay can support 22MB of data posted.
Any idea how can be done?

There are 3rd party tools to check shutter count, see link below:

I wouldn't trust that page. Opened the link, watched his video, clicked on the link and ended up on a Iranian page...my antivirus went nuts...

I forget what the windows program is that does shutter count, but there's one in the mac app store called ShutterCount that I use. Just take a screenshot of the readout from that... good enough for most people.

This one is very popular, but I have not used it, and cannot vouch for its accuracy. According to their FAQs it does support the 5D-3.

This. I tried it 2x and seems to be very accurate on the count.

Ebay is a great place to see because the vast majority of the bidders/buyers there never ask questions such as, "How many shutter actuations", or "What is the date code". I find that sales there go very well, for a lot of $, without putting a lot of burden on the seller to provide a ton of information. I would just list it on Ebay without bothering to find out the shutter count.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

That's a croc! Just charged the batteries before I connected the camera (100% in the camera level), the SN is wrong and I have to pay for it? WHat else is going to give me false info?

Not sure if this'll work with a 5DmkIII But www.shutteractuations.​com (external link) worked well with a 60D and a 6D

I have found that it is best to schedule an auction for 10 days, instead of the 7 day default setting. I have also found that it is best to have auctions end at around 10 pm eastern time zone. I have not found that the day of the week matters at all. In theory it might seem that particular days of the week would be best, but that just hasn't played out in reality.
