How do I determine the shutter count on a EOS 60D body?

  • I'm selling a 60D body, and I want to check the reported shutter-release count. But I can't find it on the menu anywhere. Does someone know how to find it?

    Note that the next assigned filename is not it. It notes the largest numbered file on the card and jumps ahead to that, so the numbers continued from my previous camera body.

    I think if you take a raw picture with it, in its data you find find the photo number.

    Canon does not include the shutter count in the EXIF info. It is stored internally but Canon has not officially released any way for consumers to access it. There are varying third party software applications that can retrieve it from some models. Which particular models will vary from one third party software application to the next.

    I have Magic Lantern on it. Would that help?

    If you have Magic Lantern installed you can check the shutter count on your 60D. All you need to do is install Magic Lantern on your EOS, press MENU and then DISP. The shutter count will appear at the bottom of the screen.

    Another way to find the shutter count on many EOS models, including the 60D, is to use ShutterCount. You can download it from the developer's page here. It is not free, but the cost is very modest ($3.99 USD or less as of December 1, 2016).

    For more detailed information about the current status of ShutterCount and what cameras it currently works with, please see this answer to How to check actuation count on an EOS 80D?
