How does one check the actuations of a d5100?
Check shutter count online - My Shutter Count.com
Opanda exif viewer.
Here's another one. http://www.shutteractuations.com/
myshuttercount.com, for some reason, its the only one I have gotten to work correctly.
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.
Thanks. I didn't realize how few shutter actuations my cameras have - the D90 only recently broke 1000 actuations and I've had it since Sep 09. Hope I use the D800 more
Note: it has to be a jpeg for most of these online exif viewers to work.
I use IrfanView. Some people claim to not it have it work for them but I haven't had problems with it :shrug:.
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.
