    last i checked, only pro models for canon have shutter actuation info. they seem to have removed it from lower end models. i have tried to get the shutter count for my wifes 550d but after reading online, looks like its not possible.

    Re: Shutter Actuation

    im simply a hobbyist carrying a mid range canon body.

    i wouldn't worry about shutter actuations, id worry about not getting the "shot'. id gladly pay 3-5k for another 3-5 yrs worth of shutter fun!!

    Re: Shutter Actuation

    hello good morning,

    earlier this month i e-mailed Mr. Jo Avila:

    Dear sir Jo,

    Please bear with me, I just can't find the answer elsewhere.

    What is the standard maximum shutter count for dslr? mine is a 60d
    What happens when a unit reaches the maximum, replace the shutter?
    Is it costly?

    By the way sir Jo, is the 'shutter' same as the 'curtain'?

    Thanks again,

    Clifford


    This was his reply:

    The shutter and the curtain are both one and the same. That's why it's referred to as the shutter curtain.

    I don't know what the maximum shutter count or Mean Time Before Failure is of the Canon 60d.

    Technically, it's rated in a number of cycles (one cycle is one shot).

    I'm pretty sure it's at least 100,000 cycles.

    Sometimes the shutter fails even before you reach MTBF. Sometimes you exceed it.

    It will happen eventually. It is no reason for you NOT to use the camera. If it happens, it means that you got full use or your money's worth out of the camera body.

    Canon service center told me that the cost of replacing the shutter curtain of a Canon 60d is about P2k (parts and labor).

    I think that the cost of replacing the shutter curtain should be the least of your worries.

    How much is P2k divided by 100,000 cycles? That's the cost to you for every shot (two centavos per shot).

    Cheers!

    Jo Avila


    And my reply again:

    Thank you very much sir Jo.

    and I mean 'very much'. Actually sir Jo I'm not worried about replacing the shutter curtain later, I'm sure I'll be spending much more on magazines than replacing it. I was just very curious about it because this is the least-discussed (if not discussed at all) topic by manufacturers of dslr.

    Yes sir Jo, it's no reason to stop shooting.

    Clifford


    Hope this post helps.

    Re: Shutter Actuation

    Hmm why worry about your camera's shutter count if it can be replaced? It is much more costly to miss THE shot than replacing the shutter curtain because the opportunity to get the former is once in a blue-moon. To most who are new to photography, thinking about that count is certainly the number one cause of failing to get that priceless moment . (including me) Don't think about the count, think about getting the shot.

    just my two cents.

    Re: Shutter Actuation

    the only reason to worry about the shutter count is when you're getting a 2nd hand unit. for someone who has bought a new one, you'll hardly max out the shutter mechanism of a DSLR, or by the time you max it out you already have the funds for a bnew one

    Re: Shutter Actuation

    Tangentially OT but still related to shutter: Does anyone know/have any idea of what a shutter coil is and how much it is locally? Can't find the answer online as of date.
