ShutterCount is Now Available for Windows


ShutterCount, our app that displays the number of shutter actuations (the shutter count) of your Canon EOS digital camera, is now available for Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 users. It looks and works the same way the Mac version does, except that history logging is not (yet) available in the Windows version.

Pricing also matches the Mac version’s (€2.69 / $2.99 / £1.99), and the Windows version can be purchased directly from the app's page. You can activate each license on two computers simultaneously, and there’s no limit on the number of cameras you can read, nor the number of readings you can perform on a camera.

Camera compatibility is also detailed on the ShutterCount web page.

Enhancements include: ability to turn off full resolution images to save space, ability to select all views, automatic export to the Camera Roll, uploading to Dropbox and selectable map type.

ShutterCount 1.2 Brings History Logging


Version 1.2 of ShutterCount, our app that displays the number of shutter actuations (the shutter count) of your Canon EOS digital camera, adds history logging as well as support for additional cameras. Logs are stored in CSV format that can be imported into Apple’s Numbers or Microsoft Excel for further processing. You can also easily share your camera’s shutter count with your friends or a potential buyer (requires OS X 10.8 or later).

Newly supported cameras are: Canon EOS-1D C, EOS 500D / Rebel T1i / Kiss X3, EOS 1000D / Rebel XS / Kiss F and EOS 1200D / Rebel T5 / Kiss X70.

It is available on the Mac App Store for $2.99. The upgrade is free for existing users.

Viewfinder Handbook 2nd Edition

Partly rewritten and expanded to cover version 3.1 of the Mark II Artist’s Viewfinder and ALPA eFinder II, the 2nd Edition is recommended to both new users and veterans of the old app — as the Mark II brought lots of changes.

New main screen, wide converter support and simulated equipment setup (now called virtual cameras) being the three most important areas.

The handbook is a 14 MB PDF file, optimized for viewing on iPads. But because it’s a PDF, you can read it on any device, be it a tablet, a Mac or a PC, and in numerous PDF reader applications.

It can be downloaded free of charge from the Mark II’s web site.

The History of Green Shine

I love cleanness. I must admit that. Not the hospital's sterile environment, but a pleasant, nice home. A few years back a huge part of our household expenses went on commercial cleaners. Glass cleaners, disinfectants, furniture polishes, drain cleaner, kitchen cleaners, laundry detergents, oven cleaners, tub cleaners, toilet bowl cleaners and so on. It is far too much to mention them all.

Then suddenly a white spot appeared on my hand's skin. My doctor made the diagnosis: eczema. His first question was about what kind of cleaners I use in my household. It was an absolute wake up call for me. Immediately started to check what ingredients are in the cleaners.
