Canon EOS Digital Cameras Shutter Life Expectancy

Many people ask how many shutter counts will last their camera. Because the camera can be used in many environments, the shutter life always depends on the usage of the camera.

If you use the camera for sports photography or wild life or timelapses where you use continous burst shots or in dirty environments like on beach where small sand dust can enter your camera when you change your lens this can lower the camera shutter life.

Also for cameras with live preview it seems that the shutter actually is used just like for taking photos, so that also counts to your shutter life, but when shooting in live view it seems that the shutter shock is much lower so this actually could help.

Here is a list of Canon EOS DSLR Cameras Shutter Life Expectancies

  • Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS / 1000D – 100,000

  • Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT / 350D  – 50,000
  • Canon EOS 80D  – 100,000 (probably will go over 150k because of the mirror vibration compensation mechanism)
  • Canon EOS 70D  – 100,000

  • Canon EOS 6D  – 100,000
  • Canon EOS 5D Mark IV  – 150,000 (probably will go over 200k because of the mirror vibration compensation mechanism)
  • Canon EOS 5D Mark III –  150,000

  • Canon EOS 1DS Mark II – 200,000
  • Canon EOS M6 Mirrorless  – 100,000 (possible to get 150k+ because of the vibration compensation mechanism)
  • Canon EOS M5 Mirrorless  – 100,000 (possible to get 150k+ because of the vibration compensation mechanism)
  • Canon EOS M3 Mirrorless  – 100,000 (probably will go over 150k because of the vibration compensation mechanism)
  • Canon EOS M50 Mirrorless  – 100,000 (possible to get 150k+ because of the vibration compensation mechanism)
  • Canon EOS M Mirrorless  – 100,000
  • Canon EOS R Mirrorless Full Frame – 200,000 (possible to get up to 500k, because of the vibration compensation mechanism and depends how much you use the silent mode which puts the camera in electronic shutter mode).

Please note that these numbers are informative and your camera may die any time, just shoot and don’t count the numbers, otherwise you will end up conserving your camera and it will get old without taking photos 🙂
