I wrote this small Windows XP utility to read and display the actuation count stored in JPEG and RAW files produced by the 1-series cameras. As far as I know it's the only utility that offers this functionality that is completely free.

UPDATE: 18 April 2010

-= 1D-Count is now available to run online for Mac and PC users =-

It's still free of course and now you can use it from within your web browser. No more downloading and running a .exe file on your PC, though that option still exists for those that prefer it.

Your browser must be compatible with Microsoft Silverlight v3.0. Click here to see a compatibility grid. You need to see "3.0" in a green box to be OK.

Just tested it on my 20D RAW & JPEG files - doesn't work. Tells me my shutter actuation count is 1935147048 ;)

So don't bother 20D people ;)

I noticed that you're using a HEX to find the shutter count, I read somewhere a few months ago that you could do this with the 20D as well. I only managed to find it in a few of my RAW files however, which is odd.

My friend, Foxbat has stated clearly:

"files produced by the 1-series cameras"  :p

Hey, it doesn't work on my Canon Powershot G2 either, it says "GITUHHREELKAMRA". ;)

On a serious note, if it works, great job to offer something like this to the forum! Does this forum have a shared utilities area? Plus you gotta get a nifty name for the utility, like FreeCount or ActuationStation, etc.

I know, but I felt like trying it out anyway, for the remote possibility that it would indeed work.
