so today i met with the guy that is selling canon 50d, so i ask him about shutter count, and he says about picture number the camera assigns.. ofc i don't buy that poo and ask him about the real shutter count, and he says that is the count, since camera wasn't reset at all, and to back his words he shows me file number in cam that says 100_pic number. he said that every time you reset the camera you go 1 number up from that 100

what i am thinking is that he is trying to give me some mud talk..
for what i know canons store photos in folders with the picture names IMG_number, was he showing me the folder number? or are his words genuine?

Personally I wouldn't trust using the file numbering. The camera will continue the numbering from the last number on the card, so if you swap in a card with old photos or ones from a different camera, it will mess up the continuity.

Try running this on it, but from memory I'm not sure if the latest firmware for 50D might have blocked its operation.

As any answers are Canon specific and are likely to come from Canon aficionados I've moved this topic.

The utility that Popo kindly referred to seems to work on most (but not all) Canon cameras. I have never been able to get it to work with my 7D :-(

The best way is to go to Canon and have them check it, even those software can manipulate shutter count.

ESO Info works wine on the 50d for getting the shutter count.

Hope it helps
