Is there any way to find out how many total pictures that the camera has taken?

The 20D uses the .CR2 format for raw not .CRW, and so far the picture count / shutter activation count has eluded me and others I know that are looking for it.

Would really like to find it though, maybe someone has decoded the CR2 format somewhere.

This is an absouletely great link though, I will pass it on to photo business forum I normally live on, Thanks
