Any suggestions on a shutter count app or site that works for Canon 5DMK2?
I've searched and tried 5 or 6 of them but none worked.
thanks!

You didn't specify Mac OS or Windows. The other day I paid $3.99 for "ShutterCount" on the Mac App Store. It worked perfectly fine for my 6D.

There are free programs out there for all three operating systems, but I wanted something that was decently maintained and it seems ShutterCount meets that criteria so it was worth it for me assuming that the app will work with all future major cameras.

Thanks for the reply, I'm on a PC.
I've been unable to find a free program that works .. do you remember one that worked for you?

No, it's been a long time since I've messed with that sort of stuff on Windows. However, try these (they at least sound familiar to me).

https://sourceforge.net/projects/canon-eos-digital-info/
http://www.eosmsg.com/
http://www.freeshuttercount.com/

I think I may have helped a buddy use that last one at some point.

Or...just ship the camera both ways and I'll do it for you for only the low cost of $3.99.

And...if you have already tried those, make sure your camera is on and the power cycled while the app is open. Also, maybe try a different Mini USB cable on a different port as well.

For anyone else, FoCal gives the count for all supported models.
From FoCal site regarding v2.3: Shutter count functionality restored for all mid-age cameras except Canon 1DX Mark II, 5DS/R, 5D Mark IV and 80D.

I've used EOSCount without a problem on a pc. It's not free but, the cost is under $2 for each use. The only downside is that the software needs a work-around if your browser is Firefox. EOSCount explains what to do. IE work perfectly.

I've checked the accuracy of EOSCount and the software is accurate. I compared the software reading to the Canon reading when I had a sensor cleaned. The software reading matched Canon's. I've found that the free software counts mirror flips or similar inaccurate readings and haven't found a free count software that works properly.
