Check Shutter Count of amost of the SLR cameras
“Camera Digital Exif Info” is a free info viewer, provides you to check your digital camera (most of the SLR) shutter count and basic EXIF info. There are various EXIF tools around of course, but cool GUI application and simplicity are always a plus. Shutter actuation is an important factor because it tells you the extent of wear the camera has undergone, and it’s particularly crucial when you are buying used cameras. Almost all new digital cameras use the EXIF annotation, storing information on the image such as shutter speed, exposure compensation, F-number, what metering system was used, if a flash was used, ISO number, date and time the image was taken, white balance, lenses that were used and resolution. All this Informations is usually embedded in the EXIF data of the picture files. This tool is available as a stand-alone Windows win32 executable and a Macintosh OS X package.
