Braking that record for shutter count!
« on: August 17, 2016, 12:35:59 PM »
A little chalange for all users of ML. How about breaking that record? Anyone can show more? I've got this camera for about 6 years and after running big timelapse project in 2012-2013 I use it mostly for timelapse filming. Canon EOS 5D Mark II - no repairs, same as I bought it. Hard to believe? Check my videos on https://vimeo.com/marcinklysewicz. Well done Canon :). By the end of this year I should have 400 000.

Greg? Is 2^24 + 2 just a coincidence?

2^24... ofcourse, I should have known better ;D

I hope you have altered the screenshots, otherwise some people can turn back the shutter time counter...
And then we get a shitload of used canon gear with only few miles..., I mean shutter actuations on the counter :P

How you get "change" menu? Maybe you can get it only with some specific firmware of module?
