What people are saying on ShutterCount?
“Works very well! The only problem I had with it was that it cost $5.99 which seems a bit much for just telling you the shutter count, but other than that it worked pefectly for me. I have a Canon 80D and since it is so hard to find the shutter count for the 80D, I bought this app; and it told me the shutter count right away.” (Mac App Store)
“I have come across many applications in online for getting my Canon camera’s shutter count but no luck. Its mainly waste of time. Then found this application paid version. Worried is it worth to buy but gave a try and luckly it worked for all my camers especially Canon 80D & 6D Mark II. Happy to use this app and saved lots of my time. Trusted app and feature is simple. Plug and Play.” (Mac App Store)
“Connected to both of my Canon 80D cameras and was able to retrieve shutter counts with no issue. Set was easy. Make sure your device is compatible with their app before you download. $7 isn’t cheap, but at least you only have to pay once!” (Mac App Store)
“Just wanted to verify this app works to get you the shutter count on the 80D. Just got a Canon Refurb and was curious. Had to watch a tutorial online to connect as if I was using a computer EOS Utility. My Opinion: Price is steep at $5 but didn’t see any other choice that wasn’t going to be hit or miss effort. Hopefully I’ll get more use out of it in the future.” (Mac App Store)

What people are saying on ShutterCheck?
“This App works as described! If you are having problems with your camera connecting, you must first download EOS Utility from the Canon website and install it. If it doesn’t show up as a download for your version of Mac OS, choose another version and download it. Works for OS Catalina and my Canon 7D and 80D.” – By dgitalchaos (Pcmac user)

What is the shutter count?
The Canon Shutter Count is a number that indicates the number of times that a camera shutter has been used.
The Canon Shutter Count can be found on the camera’s EXIF data, which is stored in the image file.
To get the Canon Shutter Count using EOSInfo, open it and click on “EXIF Data”. The Canon Shutter Count will be displayed at the bottom of the window.
Why Do You Need to Know Your Camera’s Shutter Count?
It is important to keep in mind that a Shutter Count is not the same as a shutter life. Shutter life refers to the total number of times that a camera shutter opens and closes. It’s possible for an older camera to have a high shutter count, but still, be in good shape and have plenty of life left.
The only way to know for sure if your camera has reached its peak performance is by checking the Shutter Count. A high-quality DSLR should be able to take at least 10,000 photos before reaching its limit.
So how do you find out your camera’s shutter count?
If you’re a Canon user, there’s a simple way to do it. Just go to the Canon website, select your camera model, and then click on the “Support and Drivers” tab. Under “Camera User Manuals,” you’ll find a link to the “Shutter Actuations” section.
For other camera brands, there are a few third-party websites that offer shutter count services. But be warned – these can be hit-or-miss, and you might not always get an accurate reading.
The bottom line is this: if you want to get the most out of your camera, it’s important to keep track of its shutter count. By doing so, you can extend its life and get the best possible resale value when the time comes to upgrade.
