Does anyone know of a program to obtain shutter count for a Canon EOS 2000D (Rebel T7)? Many other applications were already used with no results.

  • Did you try the programm "Exif-Viewer"?

    Canon cameras do not include a shutter count field in EXIF data, so EXIF based methods do not reveal shutter counts of Canon EOS cameras.

On Mac/Linux, you can try gphoto2:

gphoto2 --get-config /main/status/shuttercounter

To install on Mac, you can try MacPorts or Homebrew. I am not a Mac user, so cannot provide assistance beyond providing the links.

For Linux, use the package manager to install.


There is a alternative way to find your camera shutter count without installing any firmware. Visit this Website and upload the last photo that you taken from your camera. You will get the results.

    Yes, but see the other answers and comments. The files from this camera do not contain the needed information.
