Hi All

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.

Thank you

The shutter count is in the EXIF data. Get the seller to open a recent picture in IrfanView (or some similar editing software) and look in the EXIF file.

Hi Richard,

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!

Best Regards,
Marty

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.

Good question, as I accidently reset my count not too long ago and was also wondering if I could still find out a way to tell where I'm at total.

I do not think you can reset the shutter count/actuations. You can reset the file name number, but that is not the same as the shutter count.

You're right. That's what I meant. I went from the files being with the numbers somewhere around 9,000 and now it started from the beginning, I'm at about dsc_1000 now.

One question I do have, though, is how did that happen?

See page 106 of your D80 manual.

"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."

And

"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."
