    Hi I am trying to get a shutter count on a canon 7d mk2. I am going round in circles trying. I have a5d mk2 that I found a website to get a shutter count but it doesn’t support 7d mk2 . Does anybody know of a site please.

    You have to buy the app I believe.

    I had to for my 6D.

    Think it was EOS something or other.

    Thankyou for the replies. I did try downloading “ free shutter count “ but for some reason on my laptop it just wouldn’t work. I don’t mind paying to get the info but even that seems quite hard to find.....I did come across a thread ( not on TP) somewhere saying that canon makes it very difficult to get a shutter count on 7d mk2. :(

    I got it on my 7Dii very easily. Had to buy an app for a few quid, but I have a Mac so it was a Mac app.

    Sure you must be able to get something for windows.

    Edit. Free shutter count will work, but it’s not free. I remember downloading this and it only gives you the last few digits of your count. You have to pay to see the full digits. I bailed at this point and paid for somebody else’s software, as to me that’s just bloody cheeky, but if it works for you it may be worth spending a few quid.

    Yeah, it says it's free up to the first 1000 shots, after which it's $7 to see the full count.

    load the pic onto the mac
    open up the pic with preview
    go to the top of the pic to the tool bar
    click on tools
    click on inspector
    go to the second icon called get info
    click on the tab that says exif

    all the information is there

    These methods won't work with the 7D Mark II. The shutter count is apparently not in the exif data.

    If you want a free solution and you don't mind something a bit technical, you could take a look at gphoto2. It's generally run under Linux/Unix (a bootable live CD or USB will do), but various sites have instructions for building and running it under OS X and Windows.

    Kuso is getting a bit long in the tooth now as it hasn't been updated for almost ten years and the home web site no longer exists. I find Picture Information Extractor (PIE) from www.picmeta.com digs a lot deeper into the available information.

    Even a current exif utility (ExifTool, which PIE uses under the hood, is generally the most up to date) won't help here - it looks like Canon simply doesn't record the shutter count in 7D Mark II image files. The programs that do work get shutter count directly from the camera over USB.

    Thinking about this, I don't understand why Canon make shutter count so awkward to access.

    I can recommend THIS, used it on 7DMkII and 5DMkIV.

    You have to pay for it, can't remember how much but it wasn't a lot...............we're careful here in Yorkshire! lol

    Intriguing, image number I would've perceived as the "image number" whereas the shutter count is typically and potentially a significantly higher number.

    The last number by individual file number if you chimp to delete is not necessarily the equal of the shutter count!

    PS though @realspeed post #10 for a Nikon states shutter with no file number!?!

    Whatever the image preview inspector shows for 7D Mk II images, it won't be the shutter count. The inspector is just another metadata viewer, and this camera doesn't record shutter count in image metadata. Lots of other cameras (e.g. Nikons) do record shutter count values that can be viewed with the inspector, of course.

    Indeed! I don't understand why Canon don't make the information more readily available. Lightroom says I have about 20k images with a 7DII tag, so that's probably not far from the real value.
