5DII Shot Count?
« on: April 28, 2009, 05:54:27 PM »


I just bought a new 5DII in the box, but the box did not have the factory seal intact.  Is there a way I can discover the shot count on this camera?  I did not see anything in the menu or manual about this.

5DII Shot Count?

The total shutter activation count can not be obtained from the raw file. Apparently the servicing people can obtain it, directly from the camera with their own software. The "visible counter" can be reset; this is probably the intention of the camera makers. A reasonably sounding explanation is, that the camera makers allow the dealers to use cameras for demos and then reset the counter and sell it is "brand new".
