Re: Here is how to check shutter count:

No that is not the shutter count only the number of counts that the battery delivered. Unfortunately, every time the battery is recharged the counter stats at zero again.

Fortunately when I first got my 7D I began to log the number of battery shutter counts before I recharge the battery and I keep adding the cumulative counts together before the battery is charged. This may seem tedious but I have an accurate shutter count to date,
