Get shutter actuations count of your Canon EOS camera!
ShutterCheck displays a hidden information about your Canon EOS camera, so you can easily check whether or not a camera that is listed as new is really brand new or determine the value of a previously used item in order to make deals with more confidence.
Get a Quick Device Overview
Important details about your camera, such as serial number, battery charge level, possible shots and firmware version, are presented as soon as you connect your camera via USB cable.
Check Canon EOS Shutter Count and Get Live View Usage Detalization
ShutterCheck reads and decodes shutter information directly from the internal memory of your camera. For newer Canon EOS models such as the 1D X Mark II, 5D Mark IV and 5DS the app displays an extended shutter information. Together with plain shutter count you’ll get separate values for photos taken through the viewfinder, photos taken via the Live View and a number of Live View sessions. All these values are presented visually on the detalization bar.
ShutterCheck Knows Your Shutter’s Rated Lifespan
What shutter count is considered too high? Turns out it depends on a camera model! Entry-level DSLRs like EOS 100D and 760D are usually rated for something about 100,000 actuations while professional-grade cameras such as EOS-1D X Mark II can go up to 400,000 guaranteed clicks! ShutterCheck displays shutter count along with a shutter’s rated lifespan so you can easily see the percent of its wear.
Customize the User Settings
Depending on a concrete model, Canon EOS cameras support up to three user-customizable fields that are used to populate metadata of your photos. ShutterCheck gives you a convenient way to change owner, author and copyright settings of your camera.

Consider visiting our tech specs page for a more convenient table of supported cameras with additional information related to Live View actuations:
Make sure that Wi-Fi is disabled if you have a Wi-Fi capable camera (such as EOS 6D and 70D). Active Wi-Fi interface completely disables camera’s USB communication abilities.
Make sure that no other application on your Mac is trying to access the camera at the same time. Look for Image Capture, Aperture, Lightroom, EOS Utility and so on. Simultaneous access has unpredictable behaviour — both applications may not work properly.

• in order to give better estimates of expected shutter life of different camera models the app may now aggregate anonymous shutter count data; please opt in next time you connect your camera to ShutterCheck
Ratings and Reviews
Works perfectly when WiFi is disabled!
Works perfectly when WiFi is turned off! Can not conect your EOS because USB port is turned off in camera when WiFi is enabled.
Also, after using this app, turn off your camera, remove battery, then reinstall battery. This resets your “Auto-Off” settings.

Kudos for reading the instructions and doing everything like a pro!
I got two shutter counts for two of my cameras super quick and easy. Canon 7D and 6D. 7D only has about 4500 clicks on it which is just a bit more than what I was told when I bought it used. I just plugged it in to my laptop and thats all I needed to do. Super easy. I recommend everyone buys this.
Sad it does not work on EOS M5
I sadly purchased this for $5 to have this app fail at connecting to my Canon EOS M5. I really did not want to leave a bad rating and review on this, but I have been searcing for an app to check the shutter count on this camera and so far NONE of the softwares I have come across can connect to the camera. I was really looking forward to this as solution to my problem, but I was ultimately dissappointed. I advise anyone to due far more research than I did to save yourself from spending money you will never see again.

In the description of the app above there is a list of all Canon EOS models that ShutterCheck works with. As you can see, EOS M5 is not yet supported. Your disappointment has nothing to do with the actual app quality. Consider asking App Store support about issuing you a refund.
