    After years of swearing I was going to get a new body I finally ordered a sony mirrorless! I'm excited to try it out but I've had my current bodies for ~9 years now so I'm a little attached. I finally downloaded a program to get a shutter count and holy clicking!!!! What's the most you've had on a body? Mine is pretty high, but around what I had expected.... and honestly, I feel like I have bragging rights now :bek113:

    You've been a busy boy. What's the software. I've never done a shutter count and would be interested in doing it in my bodies.

    I messed up my shutter count a few years ago
    I used a sd card from a camera with a higher shutter count on my new , to me, camera
    So my shutter count jumped by 6k straight away

    post the image of the shutter count in an e male to the camera makers
    Say they can use it in advertising for the price of a new camera

    yes good idea!

    I do a lot of high volume shoots (school portraits) so the shots add up quickly.

    Have you tired checking the shutter count in third party software? Depending on your make and OS there are other tools to find out shutter count, unless it is a persnickety Fujifilm.

    Typically the shutter count is not associated with the file number on the card, for example a file number of DSC9999 will rollover to DSC0001 due to the restriction of digit extension of four places in the file naming convention.

    3 year old camera.

    It just goes to prove that high shutter count cameras are still worth something.

    Pretty sure Paige is a mother of two.

    My D2x is around 69,000 frames.

    I'd be curious what the count is for someone that covers MLB. On a 1D or 7D at around 10 fps every night for 162 games, and then the playoffs, those counts must be very high. I'm not a spray and pray shooter but the new mirrorless is sooooo quiet and the viewfinder is seamless as it is shooting that it is easy to accidentaly rattle of 10 plus shots and not realize it.

    What body made it to a quarter million?
