OK, let's try again. With all due respect and politeness, we're being very selective about which posts we're reading in this thread.

In his original post, Alexandre asked how to find the number of photos taken. If you use or have ever used Live View, the shutter actuation count does not equal no. of photos taken.

You can try this yourself, you don't have to take anyone else's word for it. Take a photo in the Viewfinder and look at image count. Enter Live View. Make sure you are in LV and watching your subject Edit: on the LCD. Don't take a photo. Leave LV and take another photo with Viewfinder. What is the image count now? You will find that entering and leaving LV without taking a photo increments image count as I said in #2 above.

You can upload your image to a web site, use third party software or post processing software, e.g., Photoshop, as mentioned above to get image count. If you are a Mac user, you can simply look at the image (NEF or Jpg) in Preview, then go to Tools, Show Inspector, i button - EXIF.

Shutter actuation cycles is a very important camera build to parameter and resale indicator of usage

Nikon tests the D800 shutter unit to ... "well over 200,000 cycles of release to prove durability and precision".

If you sell your D800, chances are the prospective buyer will want to know the no. of shutter actuations, just like looking at the mileage on a used car.

But if you want to know the no. of images taken, I don't know of an easy way to find that number. Total no. of images taken is made up of the no. of files written (to each card, each reformatted card) or the no. of files you have imported to your cataloging software.
