An easy way to know the Shutter Count number of your Canon EOS, Nikon, Sony cameras Know exactly how many shutter actuations your cameras have

Hi all, I am getting a used 50s and wanted to check the shutter count or shutter activations and on the FB GFX someone said with an EXIF viewer you can see that info, so I looked a few RAWs of the GFX from online postings and I did not see anything that showed Shutter count or anything like that. I remember reading somewhere that from the R (Rp/R5/R6/.), shutter count (if it can be read) are reported in batch of 1000s, so you would probably see something like 4000,. Shutter actuation or shutter count are number that represent how many time your camera shutter has actuated, every time your shutter open and close when taking a picture, count a one actuation. Since camera shutter are mechanical part, it will fail to operate someday when it reach it’s maximum actuation, it will worn out just like your shoes. If, instead, you want to find a ‘good’ shutter count rating, most cameras range between 100,000 and 200,000 shutter count ratings. Some professional cameras can be between 400,000 and 500,000. Unless you work as a sports or wildlife photographer and often use burst mode you can consider the 100,000 – 200,000 average as a ‘good.

What is the Maximum Shutter Count Rating for My Camera?

It vary widely by model. Obviously, canon’s professional models last much longer than entry-level model. 5D Mark II 's shutter assures trouble-free operation over its 150,000-cycle.

Canon 450D (Canon EOS Rebel XSi) 's shutter life is about 50,000 actuations. But it's not an exact match, it can failed at 25.000 or continue to working great after 100.000 actuations. It's just an average.
