  • Shutter count

    Is there a way to check in camera how many times the shutter has fired? I've had my camera for about a year now and was wondering how many pictures I have taken so far. The camera in question is a D5100. Thanks!

      Myshuttercount.com is definitely a good source.

      It can, however, take quite some time to upload the images (just tried a NEF file from my D5100). If you want something that works a bit faster, I recommend one of those super-light applications that you can install onto your computer. If you have a Mac, I recommend EXIF Viewer. It does have one drawback, however, in that you have to take a JPEG in-camera to find the actuation count. It can't find it in the NEF file.

        Myshuttercount.com takes forever with NEF (RAW), but not too bad with jpeg.

        I use it, opanda, and Flickr.

          If you have a FlickR it should be in there or you can use an image viewer like Infraview.

          But keep in mind different sites/programs can sometimes report different value.

          Like Flickr says I am currently at 58,687 actuations while Infranview says 57,239 and I bet if I took the time to upload to myshuttercount it'd say something different.

            Thanks for all the ideas, myshuttercount.com didn't take too long, I just used a small jpeg.

              How do you get shutter count out of Flickr?

                Take your last picture, go in the Action tab, choose view EXIF info
                What you are looking for is the image number, located at the bottom

                I'm not sure this is 100% accurate but based on the little tests I did it's close enough to get a good idea.

                  I don't see an action tab. Perhaps one has to be a premium member for this service??

                    On the right side of the screen, it should tell you when the picture was taken as well as the make/model of the camera. There you will find the EXIF data. Scroll down to "image number".

                      I'm just not seeing anymore information than the camera I used in that place. It must be an advanced feature you get when you pay for a membership?

                          I'm a Mac user. Looks to be a PC app.
