Camera shutters have a certain service life. Depending on the range of the camera, this is higher or lower. We can see shutters that reach 150,000 photos, while others do not go that far. Now, how do we know how many photos we have shot with our camera’s shutter? With this app for Android we can easily find out.
The application in question is called Shutter Count, and although there are online services that offer us similar functions, the truth is that Shutter Count has the advantage of being an app that we can carry on our mobile, so we will not have to resort to a computer with an Internet connection, but we can simply use our smartphone. To know the photos that we have captured with the shutter, we only need to transfer a photograph from the camera to the mobile phone. This photo can be in RAW or JPEG format. The important thing is that the photograph has not been further processed or modified after it has been removed from the camera.
We can extract it from the camera to the smartphone in several ways. Through a memory card, for example, if we use microSD with an SD adapter for Nikon or Sony cameras, through the WiFi function of these cameras, or through any other way we have to transfer the photo from camera to mobile. The only important thing, as we have already said, is that we do not forget that we need that the image has not been processed afterwards after extracting it from the camera. That is, we have not made modifications, for example, in Lightroom or Photoshop, or in some other photo editing software.
With this photograph, the app will be able to tell us the photos that we have taken with our camera. Very useful when a problem arises with the camera, it does not work properly, and we have doubts if we have reached the limit of the useful life of the shutter of the camera.
