    There should be a number stored in your EXIF data that tells you the number of shutter releases for the camera.

    If you can view all exif data (such as if you post the photo on flickr and click "More properties") then you can find the info there, in all likelihood.

    Example -- for Nikon, specifically: Here's the "More properties" link for one of my photos on flickr: Crocus. Look for "Shutter count" (towards the bottom). That's the info you want.

    It is OK to edit and repost my photos on the DPS forums only.
