    Take a photo.
    Copy it to your computer.
    Look at the Exif data using your favourite tool.

    I use Gwenview to view the Exif data and on my D5100 photos I see three "values" named "Shutter count", "Shutter Count 1" and "Shutter Count 2". I don't know why there are three different counts, but only the first have a sensible value. Shutter Count 1 always shows 0. Shutter Count 2 shows a different, random value on every photo. I've long been wondering about that, actualy.

    Note: it has to be a jpeg for most of these online exif viewers to work.

    The latest version of Picasa shows shutter count. Although I do my editing with the big names, I use picasa to go through my shoots (gotta love a free program that doesn't require confirmation upon delete.)

    ...hopefully screen shot attached.. in Picasa 3.. go to "info" (the blue icon directly over your time/date on the lower right of your monitor) then scroll ALL the way down - shutter count is 2nd to last.
