"Determining shutter count on my P7000?"


Morristown, US
          

How do I find out the number of actuations? I've tried the latest edition of Opanda but can't find it. I checked my D700 and it's listed but not on the 7000. Are there other ways to find it?

D2x, D300s, D700 & D800

For what it's worth, I started a thread about this question a number of months ago...I think it was last summer. At that time, the consensus was that there is no recording of shutter count available from the P7000 / 7100, and I've never found a workaround for this myself.

I have never been able to find the shutter count on my P7000 and like you I tried Opanda with no luck.

If I'm not mistaken, these cameras may have an electronic shutter, thus rendering any counts insignificant. FWIW, I do all my timelapses and other non-critical fooling around and experiments with the P7100, to preserve my DSLR shutter life.

1. Good content, good aesthetics and good tecnique. On that order.
2. Light is more important than glass and pixels.
3. In the digital photography process, software is as important as gear.

Shutter counts were not available until electric shutters appeared in digital cameras.

Many of the Nikon dSLRs have a mechanical shutter and an electronic shutter, for shutter speeds greater than 1/1000 sec. Most of the dSLRs have a shutter count within the MakerNote. That shutter count includes Live View, and shutter opens for cleaning. The one exception that Nikon documents is the D1 and Nikon Service Centers have the necessary probe or clips to access that data from the D1's electronic shutter.

Most P&S do not record it in the EXIF, possibly by the manufacturers choice. There is a Canon hack program that can retrieve that data from some Canon Power Shot P&S cameras.

Actually, shutter counts were available on select Nikon film cameras, but only for models that could be linked via MC33 cable to the now discontinued Photo Secretary software...yes, I'm showing my age.

Older CCD DSLRs did this, but with CMOS sensors they only use the mechanical for stills, because of the 1/60th of a second rolling shutter issues on the CMOS sensors.

There is no mechanical shutter on the P7000/P7100, they use a CCD global shutter which requires no mechanical movement. The only thing moving when you take a picture is the aperture blades. This is also what allows the camera to happily sync a flash at full speed (or close to it).

One other advantage of this is that of course there's almost no mechanical vibration for slow-ish shutter speeds. Several older CCD-based DSLRs had this as well, the ones with 1/500th of a second flash sync speed.
