Nice exif tool is that. It doesn't get the count from my 30D though not sure why. I just picked up a used cheap 40D though as a replacement (its only a workhorse camera ) and hope it lasts as the 30D did!!!



As I said in my post above, as far as I know only the 1-series camera bodies had the ability to log the shutter count.
When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

I cant believe any DSLR does not record the shutter count ?

I've been getting some fairly erratic behaviour recently from the shutter on my 5D MKII which has been heavily used. Does anybody know if it's an expensive / viable repair if it does turn out to be faulty?

I think a new shutter for a 5DII is about £200.
It's not Fine Art just because it's in Black and White.

Cheers Hugh that sounds reasonable compared to the price of a replacement.
