The Canon EOS-1D Mark II N is a digital SLR (single lens reflex) camera that takes high-quality photos and reportedly has a lifespan of approximately 200,000 shutter actuations. If you are looking to resell your camera, or you want to get a sense of when you may need to replace the shutter entirely, it is necessary to check the shutter count actuations, or how many times the shutter has been fired.

  1. 1

    Remove your SD memory card (that has recently taken photographs stored on it) from your Canon EOS-1D Mark II N and place it in the USB card reader. Plug the USB card reader into an available USB port on your computer.

  2. 2

    Download the 1D-Count program. Using software such as 1D-Count is currently the only way to check shutter actuations in the comfort of your home.

  3. 3

    Extract the zip file and double-click on the exe file. You will be prompted to browse for a photograph so that the program can read the private EXIF (exchangeable image file format) data. Find a photograph on your USB card reader using the 1D-Count browser and double-click on it. The 1D-Count program will read the private data stored on the jpg or RAW file and display the total shutter count of your Canon EOS-1D Mark II N.
