Shutter count Canon EOS 650D (T4i)

I came across this thread in these forums, and as it's a bit old, I thought I'd make a new one.

You can read the shutter count data for this and other Canon cameras on OS X or Linux computers with the command-line utility gphoto2.

Plug in your camera, turn it on and at the command line type:

gphoto2 --get-config /main/status/shuttercounter

and it will return something like:
Label: Shutter Counter
Type: TEXT
Current: 8375

You can get a list of what stuff you can get/set with:
gphoto2 --list-config

but be careful -- you're "root" in your camera.
