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.


Selling a camera online
Use ShutterCheck to determine the value of your Canon EOS camera, so you can offer it for a realistic price. Your potential buyers will ask you for your shutter count anyway. Give them this valuable information ahead of time to make a quick and hassle-free deal!

Buying a secondhand camera
Use ShutterCheck to figure out whether or not the camera that is listed as new is really brand new or estimate/verify the value of a previously used item. Ask the seller to send you ShutterCheck Camera Report that includes a shutter count info to make sure you buying an item in a good condition.

Running a camera rent shop
Use ShutterCheck to track different cameras usage to predict failures and estimate costs related to shutter mechanism replacement in future. The app is available at a flat price: you purchase the app once and then free to use it with as many cameras as you need.

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.

Partially Works with Canon 7D

The shutter count appears to be correct. It’s cheap, it’s fast, it’s easy to use. All good things. However, the serial number is displayed incorrectly. Comes up as a negative number instead of a the actual number. I feel like this should be fixed, given that it’s a paid application. If the 7D is listed as a compatible camera, all the information should be correct. Or, there should be an * with exceptions. That’s not quite on the up and up, far as I’m concerned.

This app would be 5 stars were it not for that. Seems like a small thing, but the app is $2 and it doesn’t do anything except Serial, Shutter Activations and Firmware Version. 2 out of 3 correct isn’t quite enough. Given that, I would probably still buy it over again because the shutter count does seem to work. It’s just good to know what you’re getting, though.

Also of note, I had to power cycle my camera to get the shutter count to update properly. Quitting the app, unplugging the camera from USB and re-plugging and re-opening were not enough. Just an FYI tidbit.

Thank you for the objective review! The issue with serial numbers sometimes being shown as negative values is finally fixed in the latest version (v2.0.0).

Works Great

Not sure why there are negative reviews. I purchased this over 2 years ago, and forgot that I did, but it was still in my App Store account. Re-installed on my new computer and got my shutter count right away. Lifetime purchase for the win!

I messed around for hours trying to find a utility that actually worked with my Mac and 5D Mk4 camera, till I found this app. It only costed about $5 and read my camera's straight away. So easy....
