Hey everyone. I just bought a 20D from my local camera shop and I'm curious about its shutter count. I searched the forum and saw that people recommended "eoscount" but that didn't work and apparently my camera isnt compatible. I have a laptop with windows 8 and I do have photoshop cs6. Can I use cs6 to check actual shutter count?

Also what would u recommend to clean the camera body. I was thinking about just a hot rag but the dude at the camera store said he mixes windex and alcohol but don't think I wanna try that. What do you do?

Thanks :)

I can't help you with the Canon shutter count.
I'd use Pec Pads for cleaning the outside. I bought a kit for cleaning the sensor, as well.

No. For a 20D you'll likely have to send it in to Canon Service to get the count.

A damp cloth. Damp with water only. I would not use hot water.
