Hi Bob,

Thank you for your time and detail reply. I currently can't effort to buy even a refurbish piece. Came across a 5d Mark III in a good condition and want to check its shutter count. Looking for how it can be done.

Regards,

Just be careful. A DSLR is a very complex piece of machinery, and it's not always easy to tell when one is in good condition. I've been using DSLRs for ten years, and my wife and I together own eight of them. But I still wouldn't trust myself to buy one used. Unless you're very familiar with this camera and its owner, you could find yourself in a position of having to throw good money after bad.

 

John may be able to provide you a way to read the shutter count on a 5D3; that's not the hard part. But keep in mind that the lower the shutter count turns out to be, the more you have to wonder why the camera is priced lower than a Canon refurb.

"Google" it, hahaha. Then what's the point of this help forum?

 

Here, I'll actually provide something helpful (for iOS users)

I did. My issue is someone on a public help forum hoarding information. It's a help forum. If you have information, you should post it.
