Until you find something that works for this very new camera, make sure you set you file numbering to continuous and always format cards in the 7d before using them That way you will have a pretty accurate shutter count.

There's a way to do it? Via any software?

Doesn't always work out that way. If your camera has 3456 shutter count, and you put in a card who's last picture was 5578 from another camera, even after formatting it, your next shot will be 5579.

If you use a card fresh, or from another source, always format in your PC or Mac first before putting it in your camera.

That doesnt happen with 7D, I put a card from my 50d with abt 8000 on the clock & 7D makes its own folder & keeps its own numbering.
