Re: How do i check shutter count on 5d mk3

Hello,
I'm googling about two hours and tried some programs already, but they didn't work. Magic Lantern could work, but I don't wan't to instal it on my 5D... Now I found this subject and I'm wondering if you could help me with your solution?

Re: How do i check shutter count on 5d mk3

[ Edited ]

Read my last post and google some of the key words in my last post and the post after my last one and you'll find ones other than ML. Some are free and some aren't but side note.....I talked all of that junk and went with the GH4. I figured that if I work with a team, then my GH4 should be enough.....besides, I have friends with Canons for low light, etc...

No prob Mango......Its all about helping each other to strive to get better.....I'm pretty sure I'll be asking you some things in the future because I am still fairly new to the visual side. I am forward slash Lasik_i on the gram, and L8.Nite on the book. PM me for any other questions if need be or find me on the two most popular social media sites that shows pictures and videos or stores your info in the book. I am always willing to network and work!

John,

Would you mind sending the info on locating the shutter count? I am selling my MK III and want to put it in the listing.

 

thanks,

Send it to Canon and get a certified count. That's all any sensible buyer will believe.

" It was 100% accurate on my 1D Mark IV; I checked before I sent camera in and then had Canon give me a count."

 

This time!  That is the problem you just don't know.  Maybe it is, maybe it isn't.  Maybe they fied theur software. Bit maybe they didn't!

A lot of Canon stuff. Along with, a lot of other stuff.

Re: How do i check shutter count on 5d mk3

I find that totally ridiculous, requiring to send in the camera for this piece of information. What ever possesed Canon to force their customers is idiotic. Paying for shipping, packaging and the chance the camera could be damaged in shipping or lost... Hmph! And... uisng ExifTool worked in locating the shutter count, no need to spend money on an app.

Re: How do i check shutter count on 5d mk3

Hey, Guys

My friend sent her 5D Mk2 to Canon for repair. The motherboard and some other parts were replaced. The repair facility reset everything and there appeared to have only a few shutter counts on the camera when she received it.

So if you have acquired a camera like this, will you be able to know the actual mileage of the camera.

Just curious if Canon can do all the tricks.

So why worry about SC if your camera is doing fine. I also know that video guys don't care about SC at all. Also a low SC camera may have been used in shooting videos for hundreds or even thousands hours. And does it affect anything at all ?
