Great. Thanks for the suggestions. I'll check both of these out.

Looks like it's gone, but this one lists a33, a35 and a55 as successfully tested models.

Yes that camerashuttercount.com link worked for an a900 too. Simple and fast. It seems the old Alpha Shutter Count tools is gone. Page says out of order. Glad the new one works.

I just restored the old link.
Sorry, but the server that was hosting the tool kept crashing and there was a mission critical service on it, that was 100% required to work in August and September.
I will also update the tool with all the latest Sony hardware that came out in the past couple of years :)

Sorry for lack of response, but I was at the time abroad and had no time to browse the internet for anything else except work related things.

Good news, I edited the OP to remove the 'site no longer available' note I had inserted earlier.

Yes, same root-cause like A100, A200, A300 and A350 (and KM7D/5D) aren't supported either
This status quo was explained several times in this thread already that there simply are no corresponding maker note tags (data bytes) storing such kind of info for these models

So, another update, pretty significant one as well.

The good stuff first:
- expanded support for new E and A-mount (7rm3, 9, 99m2, etc ...)
- up to 1000x faster (read below for more info)
- source code now completely free and open

The bad stuff:
- no more option of providing a link (you need to download the photo to your computer and "upload" it to the tool

The 'meh' stuff:
- old tool will still be available for a while

The gruesome details
I've rewritten the whole application, so that it now runs on your computer - in the internet browser - instead of on the server.
The benefits are:
- files no longer need to be uploaded, saving bandwidth on both ends.
- only the file header is read and processed, which is blazingly fast
- many files can be processed simultaneously
- code for reading is "readable" in the source html of the tool, if people want to "roll their own"
- no more exploits trying to infest my server

The tool should work on all modern browsers. If you have any specific issues or requests, let me know here or via a private message.

Best regards,
Guy

Thanks again, I've done a lot of tethered shooting straight to the PC with the a99II and have wondered how much of a difference there is between the image number and the shutter count.
I've copy/pasted the change log (above posting) into the Original Post.

I am curious why tools.science.si doesn't work with ILCA-68 files. It identifies the camera model correctly but reports 0 exposures.

It wasn't on the supported list, because I missed the model when adding it.
It should work now

Very Awesome! Thanks so much Guy!

.... the 96,000 clicks I now read from the counter on my A99ii was a bit of a shock though.


Regards and gratitude

No need to worry yet, Sony claims a life expectancy of 300,000 clicks for the a99II, that's a big jump over the a99 (200,000)
