How to check the shutter count on your Canon DSLRs

Tutorial on how to check the shutter count on your Canon DSLRs

To be able to check the shutter count on your Canon DSLRs, we would be using a program called EOS Info. This program used to work for both PC and Mac, however as per a recent update, it will now only work on PCs. Mac users, scroll down.

This works on any of the Canon DIGIC III/IV DSLRs except the 1D* series. This means it will work for the 40D, the 50D, the 450D and the 1000D. It will not work on the 1D*, 5D, 10D, 20D, 30D, 300D, 350D, and 400D and the 500D.

  • Download the program from the link mentioned below and install it. 
  • Connect your Canon DSLR to your PC or Mac.
  • Make sure your DSLR is switched ON
  • Open EOS Info !
As you can see from the screenshot below, my Canon 1000D currently has a shutter count of 13,548. Go ahead and check yours now, don't forget to comment on this article letting us know your Canon's shutter count.
