The shutter count is contained in exif data .....use a reader to find Smile

Edit - I should have mentioned of course, you need to shoot a jpg to find Smile

"Opanda" will read exif data and its basic version is free, though the more advanced version is not.
I understand it will show Nikon shutter actuations, not sure about other brands.

That works doesn't it . . . ?

It tells me though that I've taken about forty more shots than my camera's counter does.
The counter's never been reset to zero. In fact, I'm not sure that it's possible, although I'll stand to be corrected.

The difference might be the actuations used for the QC testing at the factory. I think I saw that reason advanced as a possible explanation on another thread and it does seem believable.

Thanks LF,

I seem to recall reading or hearing something similar. It might well have been in that other thread.

If you use flickr, it shows over 100 items of EXIF data - including shutter count.

If anyone is interested we have been using an application called PhotoME or Photography Metadata Editor for some years - it gives comprehensive access to exif and IPTC data - including shutter counts Smile

The app has not been updated for a couple of years, but the developer assures that he has not abandoned it.

Search for Photome....it is free and on Windows platform.....

Tried the website mentioned above to try to find thw shutter count for my D50, which I have had frpm about 2006. It came back as a total of 4889, which I know can't be correct as I have often come back from one days shooting with 5/600 images at a time
