    As far as I can tell, there is no way to get a shutter count on a Rebel xti with exif or an app of any kind. I'm the original owner of the camera, my last taken photo was named IMG1900, and the oldest one I have on record is IMG7100 (everything before that was backed up and lost in a comp. crash, but the names are not numbered). My guess is that I flipped the 10K mark and i'm up to about 12000 shutter-fires. Am I figuring this correctly?

    thanks for the info

    Yep. it rolls over at 9999.

    That's about as good as it gets for a Canon

    Sounds right.

    On pretty much all Canons other than the top of the line, there is no way to check the number of actuations. File number is the only thing you have to go by.

    Thanks all. Doesn't Canon rate these shutters at around 50K?

    Sounds about right for an XTi.

    If i'm at 12000, i'd be very happy to get 50K. Hell, i'll probably be ungrading before I get to half that.

    Canon rates them for 100,000 shutter cycles, the newest ones like the 7D are for 150,000

    Where did you find that? I've been looking over Canon USA's web site and don't see it.

    If you upload an original file to flickr with no editing or anything like that, they'll tell you your shutter count under property. I have about 7000 on Nikon D40 right now. Happy shooting :)

    That only works with the more recent Nikon cameras. Won't work for Canon.

    If you put img_0001 on a memory card, and put that in the camera, the next file number should be img_0002. I learned this the hard way when I was sharing memory cards between two canon camera's. So ive lost the file count on both of them. :( oh well.

    I was thinking xxxD canon dslr's were rated for around 10k? glad to hear thats wrong. :) im at like 15k on my 350d, or so I think. :)

    i don't wana know mine. Its like knowing you have a fatal disease or something. Ive heard of a program called opanda or something that can tell you shutter counts.
