Where is the shutter count listed on this used camera?

1 year 1 month ago #623274 by Jill Pomeroy
I'm trying to find the shutter count on this used Canon M50 and can't seem to find it.  Am I missing something or don't they list that?  Seems like that would be a vital piece of information to list for a used camera.

You will have to ask the advertiser.
They need to input the last frame onto an online program.

If you are on Mac, open the last file in Preview/
Tools/ inspector Info tab and explore the Exif tab.

…works with all my Nikon DSLR. Have a good time!

Light is free… capturing it is not!

You can not do it yourself if the camera is in the hands of someone else and is just advertised on the internet.
Or that is how I understand the situation.
"Tell me the shutter count before I buy."

The actuation number is in the EXIF data of the file. Only.

You need a file from the camera. There are online tools which will extract that information.

Likely something you'll need to ask them before you purchase.

Because we can't be bothered to read the thread before posting. :S

I don't get that last comment.  I would have said the same or close to it.  As you said earlier, that data is in the EXIF data, so you would have to ask the company in order to get access to this information.  

Unless I'm missing something here.  Sorry, late night and kind of tired.

Not that out of ordinary, even on KEH they don't show number of times shutter has been clicked either.  For example:  www.keh.com/shop/nikon-d750-24-3-megapix...amera-body-only.html

My point was that, if the poster had read the entire thread, it would have been clear that the only way to get the shutter count is from a file from the camera, which has to come from the seller. There are no options.

I know it's just crazy talk, but I think there's more value in reading the entire thread first to see if one has anything to add that hasn't already been said, or to (clearly) reinforce another comment. And I'm not picking on just one person; it's a too-common problem, often prefaced by "I don't have time to read all the comments."  #againwiththeeyerolls

The company mbp is not a US company but has a distribution center here. You might want to check out listings as well as policies like warranty, and shipping and return info. (I think the time to make a return is fairly limited.).

edit - Looked at their site which shows mbp US with an office now in NYC. Shows as being registered in Delaware, because they can (that state allows overseas companies to register here while I think other states require a company to register as a foreign owned business). Their Facebook page shows their main location in the UK.
