Shutter Count Canon 6D Mark II

This is my daughters camera. Trying to sell it for her and peeps want to know the shutter count.

For the life of me, I have downloaded more porgrams that I care to count and spent more hours than I care to remember and still cannot find any way that works on this model.

I have tried:

CanonEosDigitalInfo_v1.4_SDK_v2.14

CanonEosDigitalInfo_v1.4_SDK3.5

EDSDK

EOSinfo.exe

eoscount

eosmsg

freeshuttercount

and a few more that I have deleted

None of them even detect the camera even though the computer does )USB Connection)

 

Any suggestions - advice?

Thanx

Look into ShutterCount by Dire Studio.

Hate to spend $7.00 for single use and never to use again, but if that is the only option ....
Couldn't even give to my daugher cause she has an android (I have iphone) and she's in Kenya atm

Re: Shutter Count Canon 6D Mark II

I know that software works. I have used it on several cameras and compared the reading from Canon and ShutterCount the day they were returned from Canon.

 

If that is the only way you can sell the camera then its a cost of doing business.

 

But, I agree with everyone who says that is obsession over shuttercount is foolish. More important is how the camera was treated.

Late reply...

 

>>>>  Walk Away.  Seriously.

 

Your comment "I have downloaded more porgrams than I care to count and spent more hours than I care to remember " says it all.

 

People who think they are somehow being clever asking you to prove shutter count on a "daughters" used camera are not worth your time.  If your daughter doesn't work for Sports Illustrated, they don't have anything to worry about if the camera was cared for.

Re: Shutter Count Canon 6D Mark II

Shutter count is a slippery slope. It leads to the inevitable questions of when was the count measured, and how much has it been used since the count was measured.

Of course, the next question is how was the count measured. And, that is when the useless back and forth begins to wear on you.

I also say don't do it.  Although somebody may have received a correct number it isn't always so.  You can not rely on any source except Canon for the true count. Some of the programs can screw up your computer or have spam in them, too. 

 

SOme people are satisfied with a number, any number, so if that is what they want give them one.

Tornado shutter counter free version is working for me on Canon EOS 6D II! 
(I also spent more hours with the research, and my husband ♥ found it for me. Smiley Happy )
