How to find out shutter actuations for Canon 7D? -- how to tell if it's new?
Aug 20, 2012

I'm going to buy a new 7D and I want to make sure the camera is new just in the shop. I asked the service center and they told me I should first get the camera and then take it to service center and they said they're the only one who can do this!

I googled and find many different suggestions, but since I don't have 7D yet I can't test any of them. it seems gPhoto2 on Linux is the best solution. has anyone tested 7D on gPhoto2?

What are the other reliable ways to know if camera (7D) is new or not? I mean other than shutter count, what are the other things that I should check?

I'm going to take my laptop to the shop to test the camera on spot, is there anything that I need to know about these programs? because I don't think I could connect to the internet in the shop.

Please let me know about everything that I should check in the shop.

Thank you all for your help.

Canon EOS 7D
