How to check shutter count on Ricoh GR III ?

This may have been answered already in the thread, but I couldn't find it.

I know that you can upload a photo to shutter counter webpage, but my question is regarding the "on camera" screen which displays this information.

As many will know, this was quite simple with the GR II, but the controls on the GR III are different, hence I'm not sure how to find this information.

If you don't want to dig around in exif files, upload an unedited camera jpg here.

I don't think anyone has discovered how to display shutter count on camera yet.

I knew this site but it never had a Ricoh Camera listed. For the obvious reason: Ricoh had a secret code (that everyone knew) that would reveal the “real” count which one could also zero it. It was a major firmware flow. I’m glad they fixed that.

It works for the GR3. I tested it earlier. I'm not clear why it needs a 'secret code'. I presume it reads the info from the sample exif data.

Sorry – I ignored your 'I know that you can upload a photo to shutter counter webpage,' statement, as I responded to @telemach's post.
