Looking for total shutter count actuations on Sony a700.  I have dragged unedited raw and jpeg files to the unzipped exiftool-9.28 file on my desktop. The program provides an incredible wealth of information, thank you for that. Yet I do not see shutter count, is this camera not covered by this program? Thanks in advance

Yes, unfortunately this information seems to exist only for some models.  The ShutterCount either isn't stored in A700 images, or it hasn't yet been decoded.

...where DIR is the name of a directory/folder containing the images.  On Mac/Linux, use single quotes (') instead of double quotes (") around arguments containing a dollar sign ($).


Thanks for the quick reply, still a great program.
