"Shutter Count on d3200?"


US
          

I went through the pdf file, using their search engine, and could not find shutter count. Everyone mentions it. How do I find it on a d3100 or a d3200?

What computer operating system do you use and what is your photo edit software?

Considering Photoshop Elements, but currently have Photoshop 5.0. XP desktop computer. But, isn't the count on the camera?

The count is not accessible on the camera. It's placed in the EXIF data of every file produced by the camera, though: NEF, JPEG, etc.

So what you need to do is to find one of the more advanced EXIF readers. On Windows, the usual reference is called Opanda. Later versions of Photoshop display the data with File->File Info, but 5.0 is so old that I'm fairly sure that it doesn't. (Current CS6 is 13.0.5; I think 5.0 is from about 1999?) There are lots of ways to read this, though.

It's not on the camera. It's in the EXIF data but not every program will report the shutter counts. I use photoshop file info.

What you can do which is very easy is to upload a file here.

There are other online sites you can use as well. I'm sure there will be other recommendations if you get more responses.

Wow. That's rather inconvenient if you are at a neutral place looking at a second hand camera ytoyu are interested in.

OK. Will use it if I buy used. Thanx. I guess vibes from the seller, and visual inspection of the camera will be best.

Have the seller tell you the shutter count. Tell him how to do it if he doesn't know.

Makes sense to me. OK. Will do.

Plan to buy camera either in private sale, or used from Clem's Classic Cameras in Daytona Beach.

Each little detail is important, so I can get the best deal.
