How to find shutter count /actuation in Canon DSLR cameras

I wanted to sell my camera so it was important to know shutter count or actuation in my camera to set a sensible price. I did some research and came up with some options to get the shutter count.

  • Magic lantern
  • Photoshop
  • Uploading images on a website

None of these options worked for me. I have not installed Magic Lantern, this is yet another beast to learn to install on my camera. Someone suggested that we find count in Photoshop file information, this did not work for me. I found the website where you can upload an image to get shutter count, this did not work for me either.


I found a lightweight tool which works for many Canon models. I have tested this on my Canon 600d aka T3i on windows 10 64 bit OS, this worked as expected.
