Check Canon EOS Shutter Count

Wondering when it's time to replace your camera's shutter? It depends on the model. Entry-level DSLRs like EOS 100D and 760D are usually rated for around 100,000 actuations, while professional-grade cameras such as EOS-1D X Mark II can go up to 400,000 guaranteed clicks! With ShutterCheck, you can see your camera's shutter count and rated lifespan, so you can easily gauge how much wear it has.

Canon EOS 6D shutter usage.
This EOS 6D camera has only 29,669 shutter actuations, so we can say it’s barely used. No need to worry about the shutter, so the wear indicator is coloured green ✅.
Canon EOS 6D Mark II shutter usage.
This EOS 6D Mark II is in the middle of its life cycle. 96,880 shutter actuations are already made, but there is still a lot to go, thence the ‘yellow’ ✴️ rating.
Canon EOS 5D Mark IV shutter usage.
This EOS 5D Mark IV has worked out 92% of its rated lifespan. The camera is heavily used, therefore the red colour ❌ of the wear indicator. Beware!

Personalize Your User Settings

Certain Canon EOS camera models allow you to customize up to three fields of metadata for your photos. With ShutterCheck, you can easily modify the owner, author and copyright settings of your camera.

What ShutterCheck is Good For?

💸 Selling a camera online

Use ShutterCheck to determine the value of your Canon EOS camera and make sure you're offering it at a realistic price. If you're selling your camera online, potential buyers will likely ask about the shutter count. By providing this information upfront, you can make the process quick and smooth for everyone involved.

🔮 Buying a secondhand camera

Use ShutterCheck to determine if a camera that is being sold as new is actually brand new, or to estimate the value of a previously used camera. When purchasing a secondhand camera, ask the seller to provide a ShutterCheck Camera Report with information about the shutter count to ensure that you're getting a camera in good condition.

🏪 Running a camera rent shop

Use ShutterCheck to track the usage of different cameras and predict future failures and replacement costs for the shutter mechanism. The app is a cost-effective solution for your business, with a flat price for unlimited usage on as many cameras as you need.

Does Exactly As It Says With a Beautifully Minimal Design

“Any time you want to buy or sell a camera online, knowing how many times the shutter has fired is a mandatory piece of information. This app does that fast and presents the information in nicely designed screen. I appreciate the care the developer took to show the camera data in a clean concise way. It worked perfectly on my Canon 60D.”
rob.knight, review on the Mac App Store


“Downloaded the app, plugged in my camera, launched the app and checked shutter actuations for my Canon 5D Mark III in less than a minute. Nothing else in life is so easy. Thanks, Konstantin!”

No-Nonsense App That Does What It Says

“This app does one thing and does it very well: tell you how many shutter actuations that a given Canon DSLR has. It’s a great way to measure the “mileage” of a camera. And it’s a nice tool if you want to prove the shutter count when selling a camera. It’s very silly that Canon doesn’t give users a way to see how many clicks are on a camera, and this app solves that silly problem. Well done!”

📸 Industry Experts' Opinion

Shutter Muse Digital Photography Review The Digital Filmmaker SLR Lounge
“ShutterCheck works exactly as it should do and is definitely worth a purchase if you are going to be selling or buying a second-hand camera. I particularly love the fact that they tell you what the shutter on your camera model is rated to, and calculate the lifespan percentage that has been used!”
Dan Carr, Professional photographer based in Yukon, Canada, and founder of Shutter Muse.
“Amazingly, there's no built-in method to finding out how many shutter actuations your Canon DSLR has amassed. Thankfully though, there are third-party solutions to help get the job done… To help you gauge how much longer you can expect your camera's shutter to function, ShutterCheck v2 also shows the expected shutter life for your camera.”
Gannon Burgett, Writer/Photographer
“If you’ve ever wanted to know how many shutter actuations a Canon camera has, the new ShutterCheck 2 Mac app makes it easier than ever. For a long time, to get a true shutter count on some Canon cameras, you’ve had to nerd out and download Java apps and learn out how to use Terminal. Or figure out how to install Magic Lantern on supported cameras.”
Digital Filmmaker Team
“ShutterCheck… has long been one of the more popular choices for viewing Canon shutter counts on Macs, and they’ve released a new version that supports newer cameras and adds new features.”
Holly Roa, Seattle based photographer
