Hi Ed,

You can use Opanda Exif Viewer to see the number on shutter releases. You'll find it here, http://www.opanda.com/en/iexif/index.html and the best part is it's free. Just shoot an image, open with Opanda, scroll down to "Total number of shutter releases for camera".

www.opanda.com

download and install the exif viewer. You can then open jpgs through the software or right click on an image file and open the software.
Almost to the bottom of the resulting screen is the total number of shutter releases.

Opanda or any Exif viewer should be used on an unedited Jpeg. This is because other software may remove the MakerNote section of the EXIF data.

You can access Jeffery\'s Exif viewer. You can upload a Jpeg and view the data with your web browser. It can also process NEF images, but due to their size, they will take a long time to process.

Hi Howard, I've downloaded Opanda Exif, but I don't find: Total number of shutter releases for camera. I am missing an additional step? TIA, Ed Weidman.

You need to look at an image that has not been edited or modified by any program.

Nikon palces the 'Shutter Count', "Shuttter Actuations", or other similar wording within its MakerNote. This is unique to all Nikon dSLRs except the D1 series.

Hi, I saw an item that was abbreviated but when I copied the item to Notepad, it was the "Total number of shutter releases". Thanks again for your help. Ed

The columns in Opanda are adjustable and one can scroll down the list of tags. It is like adjusting columns in Excel and scrolling down the worksheet.
