EOSCount.com is a website that allows users to get an accurate shutter count for most current EOS Digital SLR's. It was originally free, but now there is a small payment required to access to shutter count.
Much later in this thread another free 'copycat' website is talked about, but I would suggest avoiding it as there have been reports of 'Malware' on that website.
Sorry, not ALL EOS but most current ones...

Which cameras are supported for shutter count retrieval?
Single-DIGIC III, all DIGIC IV, and some DIGIC V EOS cameras are supported. For example, shutter count can be read from the
•Rebel XS / 1000D / Kiss F
•Rebel XSi / 450D / Kiss X2
•Rebel T1i / 500D / Kiss X3
•Rebel T2i / 550D / Kiss X4
•Rebel T3 / 1100D / Kiss X50
•Rebel T5 / 1200D / Kiss X70
•Rebel T3i / 600D / Kiss X5
•Rebel T4i / 650D / Kiss X6i
•Rebel T5i / 700D / Kiss X7i
•Rebel SL1 / 100D / Kiss X7
•40D
•50D
•60D
•70D
•7D
•6D
•5D Mark II
•5D Mark III
•1D Mark IV
•1D X
•1D C
DIGIC II and dual DIGIC III cameras are not supported. For example, shutter count is not available for the original 5D (Mark I), the 1D Mark III, and the 1Ds Mark III.

Try http://eoscount.com
You'll have to use a 32-bit version of Internet Explorer and install an ActiveX control for communication with the camera. Then the control will read the shutter count from a 60D or a 7D right in the browser.

EDITED to show which cameras and which browsers are supported.....

Which browsers are supported?
32-bit Internet Explorer 5.0 and later. Firefox and Chrome are supported through the Internet Explorer tab (IE Tab). Other browsers are supported only when they can run ActiveX controls.
A browser must be 32-bit, as a 64-bit browser cannot run 32-bit ActiveX controls. The EOS Count control is 32-bit, because the Canon SDK is distributed in 32-bit version only.
The recommended browser is Internet Explorer 9.0.


I just tried this and it really works!
Serge, thank you for this great breakthrough.

Worked with 5DII, 450D, 40D. The 40D required a browser restart after reading the other two straight up.

According to the FAQ's on the download site, this will unfortunately NOT work on 5D classic.

Gave me the shutter count with 5D2 but couldn't read S/N.
After restarting browser, read both the shutter and serial correctly on 40D.
All in all, nice find, thanks for sharing!

What we see depends mainly on what we look for.

It read my 7D fine, but then I popped off a couple of shutter clicks and it took multiple restarts of IE to get it to read the camera again, which it finally did, and correctly added the additional shutter actuations.

Good little activeX plugin... Worked for my 550D. I then went back into the browser setting and removed the activeX plugin.

In this article you will learn how to check shutter count on the Canon EOS 1100D (known as the EOS Rebel T3 or the EOS Kiss X50 in some regions) using the Magic Lantern firmware hack.

What Is Shutter Count?

Digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) cameras have commonly two moving parts. The first is the main reflex mirror. This is the mirror, which allows you to look through the lens from the viewfinder and that swings up and out of the way when you take a photo. The second moving part is the mechanical shutter. The shutter is a very sensible part and is often prone to failure over the life of the camera. So, basically the shutter count is just a number that reflects the amount of shutter actuations. This number is stored somewhere in camera’s internal memory and our task in this article is to reveal this number. Canon, unfortunately, doesn’t provide an easy way to check the shutter count. That’s why we’ll use a hacked firmware known as Magic Lantern to find out the shutter count.

How to find canon t3i shutter count

Why Should You Care?

Would you buy a used car without checking how many kilometers or miles were on it? Probably not. It applies similarly to the DSLR cameras. DSLRs have an expected lifetime, which is generally counted in the amount of shutter actuations. The Canon EOS 1100D camera has an expected lifetime of about 100K shutter actuations. Thus, when buying a used 1100D it makes perfect sense to look for a camera that has the smallest shutter count. The less the better.

How to Read the Shutter Count

IMPORTANT! Be aware that you can brick you camera if something goes wrong! Do it on your own risk! Make sure that your camera battery is fully charged throughout the whole process.

To read the shutter count of the EOS 1100D (Rebel T3, Kiss X50) with Magic Lantern these steps should be followed:

  1. Make sure that the camera is running the firmware version 1.0.5, because this is the only firmware version that Magic Lantern currently supports. If your firmware version is different, then upgrade or downgrade the camera to the version 1.0.5 using Canon’s original firmware file “eos1100d-v105.zip” available at the Magic Lantern’s site.
  2. Prepare the SD memory card by formatting it inside of the camera.
  3. Copy Magic Lantern’s modified firmware files for the 1100D/T3 to the root directory of the memory card.
  4. Flash the Magic Lantern firmware to the camera.
  5. Press the “Av” / “trash bin” button on the camera to enter the Magic Lantern menu and go to the “Debug” section. There you will find the shutter count, which is a sum of two numbers. The first number is the amount of shutter actuations in the standard mode. The second number the the amount of shutter actuation in the live view mode.
  6. If you don’t want to keep the Magic Lantern in your camera, then go to the camera’s menu and initiate the firmware update again. Magic Lantern will pop up again and will count down 60 seconds. Afterwards, it will remove all the triggers from the camera. Now you can format the memory card again to get rid of the Magic Lantern files from the card completely.
  7. Optionally, you can flash the camera with the genuine firmware 1.0.5 from the step 1 or with the latest firmware version available (1.0.6 at the moment of writing) from the Canon’s support site.
