Re: canon 7d shutter count

With multiple camera bodies and a desire to check the counts from time to time, I'd sign up for a reasonable "one time" charge to allow me to check cameras from time to time, etc. Starts to add up if you have multiple bodies and you want to check them once a quarter or so. If the author offered a one time $15 fee, for example, I think it would be more appealing.

Does the app on the website "camerashuttercount" work accurately for the canon 7d?

Since it's now quite costly I would advise you use gphoto2 on a Linux system, there are plenty of live DVD's so that you don't even have to install it...

That site does not work for the Canon 7D.
You have 2 choices:

1. You can go to and pay $1.50 via Payal. This is the one Karl described as "quite costly". I think it is "quite" reasonable.

2. You can use gphoto2 (a linux program). If you are currently running linux, then this one is the obvious choice. If you have never used linux or vmware, then I highly recommend you just go to Cost is not just a measure of cash, but also of time and effort. For the linux novice, this option can be "quite costly".
