for canon the most reliable way is go to csc and have them check it for you, costs like 20 bucks though...

If you are a Canon EOS dslr user, allow me to help you save some money.

actually why do people care so much about shutter counts?

A camera can typically last 100000-200000 shots or even more.

Assuming u take 10000-20000 shots a year (which is actually more than what a normal person will take) it will also take 10-20 years to reach the limit. By then the advancement of the DSLR will be so far ahead, u wont even think twice about changing for a new one.

this is the laughable part. Shutter count is the least important factor when buying 2nd hand cameras.

Say for example u wannna buy a DSLR. One seller has a new set which is only 3 month old, but has a shutter count of 30000. Another guy has is selling the same camera and clocked only 10000 shutter count but his camera has been used for 3 years already.

I would choose the 3 month one even if the shutter count is 3 times the 2nd guy's.

the only time i think i will check shutter count is like heshanj mentioned, when buying a camera from someone and he claims its brand new and unused. Since its supposed to be unused before, i would appreciate it as really unused since im paying more for a brand new set instead of a 2nd hand set.
