How do you get the shutter clicks ?

How do you get the shutter clicks ? On the Nikon cameras. Can you do it yourself at home. I don't have the latest Capture.

Re: How do you get the shutter clicks ?

Before anybody jumps on this post for lack of clarity, remember we ALL sometimes have difficulty expressing ourselves by typing and have language issues. I think what the poster is asking is how to tell the total number of times the shutter has been actuated. Am I correct Yakichi?

Re: How do you get the shutter clicks ?

The only way I know on a D2X is to look at the battery condition. It appears to count that.
Degree of accuracy ? Beats me.

Re: How do you get the shutter clicks ?

If you're interested in finding out the shutter actuations (the number of times the shutter has been fired) you have to check the EXIF data of a jpg or tiff file.

There are plenty of free software programs that can do this for both PC and Mac like Exifer for the PC and Exif Viewer for the Mac. Do a Google serach for EXIF viewer and you should come up with lots of hits.

Re: How do you get the shutter clicks ?

Nikon stores the shutter actuation count (an unsigned 32-bit integer) in the EXIF Maker Notes, with a tag name of "ShutterCount". Thus, you can shoot a frame and read the shuttercount value from the resulting image file using any tool that will show the Maker Notes. For example:

exiftool -shuttercount file

where "file" is the name of an image file that still has the EXIF information in it.

(ExifTool's author, Phil Harvey, maintains a web page for it, ExifTool by Phil Harvey.)

Re: How do you get the shutter clicks ?

Hello,

There are many free exif viewers availale in the net but if you are in the field without a pc/notebook, then all you have is just the camera. If you go to the menu, one can easily check the last running number from the last picture in preview. On default the 'Active Folder' menu starts counting at 100. Every picture taken shall then be noted as 100-1, 100-2 etc. When pictures counts exceeds 9999, the next one shall start at 0000 again and the active folder will be 101 and so on. So if your last picture is 7651.jpg and in active folder 104 shall equal to about 47651 shots. this may not be accurate but its not far off though.... When we upgrade firmware, shots start back at 0000 but maintaining the last active folder....this is how I check the shutter release when looking at 2nd hand digital bodies.

Not realiable. The active folder can be incremented anytime. I've used active folders as high as 135.
