How to check shutter count on 5D Mark II

sunnybarb [deleted] says:

Can you check for this on the 5D Mark II in camera? I thought you could but can't find anything on the Menu. The other topic about the 300,000 count on the 5D Mark II got me to thinking I would like to check what my count is.

Well I recently discovered this site eoscount.com/

In EOSCount you can check your MKII's actuations. I had the same issue with my 7D and was able to know exactly hoy many I have in my camera.

I think some internet browsers are not compatible but they give you all the info you need.

I think Macs are not compatible with EOSCount.

I think you're right Ken but it's the only way I've managed to find out my 7D's actuations.

Those with Macs need to run 40d shutter count...

I can confirm that the link Kyle Royston posted above me, works just fine, and is easy to use on my iMac.

Thanks Kyle Royston, it works on a MAC even though some of the messages imply it will not work on 5D series.

Looks like I'm out of luck... the program runs on 32-bit computers only?
Is there a way to work around that?

40Dshuttercount definitely works for the 5D MkII on Macs. I use it all the time running OS 10.7

Yep the 40Dshuttercount app worked for me as well on my iMac running MacOS 10.7.4, 24,849 actuations.
