How to Determine K20D Shutter Count on Mac


I've never downloaded software for shutter count or determined shutter count in any way, but would like to for my K20D and K200D.

Can anyone recommend a place to learn how, from the very beginning? For example, what software to download, then what?

Many thanks.

The best software is Photome (PhotoME - Exif, IPTC & ICC Metadata Editor). Photome is a freeware for Windows that gives you the full EXIF details.

Among the EXIF data, you will find the shutter count.

Simply, open a photo file with Photome and you will have all details of the photographs plus the shutter count.

A great utility.

Hope that the info will help...

GraphicConverter by Lemkesoft has ExifTool built in.

Apple photo software - Mac picture editor, photo editor, image editor, graphics conversion

Open the last pic taken then select Get Info. Click on the ExifTool tab and scroll down a bit. Shutter Count should be right after SR Focal Length.
