Re: Eos M3 ShutterCount

[ Edited ]

"How do i check shutter count on CANON EOS M3?"

 

You can't.  The M3 doesn't have a conventional shutter.  Because mirrorless cameras do not have that mechanical mirror/shutter mechanism, the light that comes in through the lens goes straight to the sensor.

Re: Eos M3 ShutterCount

My M5 has a mechanical shutter and I have found spare shutters for M3 and M2 at Ebay. Seems like also M3 has a mechanical shutter.

Re: Eos M3 ShutterCount

And it seems possible to check the shutter count on the M3, but I haven't tried the software.

Canon hasn't confirmed accuracy but I have. ML and 7D/6D showed the same as Canon Japan showed.
