Just saw this today, thought might be helpful to find shutter count on OS X.

Free for a limited time

Just wanted to add a more readable link to the EOS Inspector page on the Mac App Store:

Btw, guys, I would love to hear your thoughts about the app.

Please leave it FREE for at least a few days. My Mac Mini has been dead since the end of February (waiting for a new model to come out), so I can't download it before I arrive at work tomorrow morning. So far I've always been using gphoto in a virtual machine (linux) to retrieve the shutter count of my 550D. It works wonderfully, but it's a hassle to be honest.

Great and simple app! Thanks for this.

It would be nice if we can edit the owner's name or the copyright of the camera but even if not still a great app.

Been looking for an app like this for ages to see what my 5D2 had done. Turns out it's done 11k more than I thought! Cheers for sharing!

I also tried my EOS-M. It picked it up, but doesn't show shutter count.

Tested it at work with my 550D. It appears to be working (will double-check the shutter count in linux with gphoto later on to compare them both). After taking a shot, the shutter count increases by 1 while the available shots decreases by 1. So far, so good. However the owner's name field stays empty here. Which value has to be set in the camera for this?

I have this feature on my todo-list. Just wanted to make sure there will be interest from the community before putting more effort into this little app.

As far as I know there is no way to set this value in the camera. In one of the future versions I will make the copyright/author fields editable in the EOS Inspector, so you be able to customize them.

Doesn't work with 1dMkII. Shows its connected, but gives me a blank box. Any ideas?

I like the app. It's nice, clean and minimalistic but it gets the job done. It's a huge difference in used diskspace compared to my previous solution (Linux vmware image). So I hope this handy, little application is here to stay. :)

I advertised your application on a Dutch photography forum, so your application will get the attention it deserves. :)

Thank you so much! Really appreciate it! 👍

So that means the application is accurate and I can dump the whole Linux VMware setup. 8-)

Yeah, your VMware setup sounded like an overkill for a simple shutter count check)

Seriously, how would you connect the DSLR to the iPad? Wirelessly?
