Can any one tell me how to find a shutter count, on a D80 I'm going to purchase one on Ebay, and ther are a few people that don't know or how to find it. I know of a couple of sotfware programs, but is it in the photo description in the Nikon software, Thank you for any info.
Welcome to Nikonians! Open a jpeg image file created in the camera with Opanda IExif 2.3 available free at www.opanda.com. About the 6th item from the bottom is: Total number of shutter actuations. Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!
If you don't want to get into installing Opanda or PhotoMe or equivalent (although it is easy), ask the seller to email you a recent shot and then post it here. We can look at the shutter actuations and let you know what it is. Peter
You can even use Jeffrey\'s Exif Viewer from your web browser to see the Exif data from a web image, or image on your computer. It will even handle a NEF, but this can take a long time to process as the image needs to be uploaded to the web server for processing. The 'Shutter count' will be toward the bottom of the page and you will need to scroll down due the amount of data being displayed.
"OnFile numbering continues from the last number used after a new folder is created, the memory card is formatted, or a new memory card is inserted. If a photograph is taken when the current folder contains a photograph numbered 9999, a new folder will be created and fi le numbering will begin again from 0001."
"File Numbering If the current folder is numbered 999 and contains 999 photographs or a photograph numbered 9999, the shutter release will be disabled. If File no. sequence is on, turn it off and format the memory card or insert another memory card in the camera."
