Hi Gang...

I was just wondering, when it comes to determining the number of shutter actuations on a digital body, just how reliable and accurate have you found software like Opanda IEXIF v2.3 to be?

Are the results dependable, trustworthy and accurate?

For example, I was recently contemplating the purchase of a D2Xs. The seller came to my home and as I was looking the body over, he mentioned it only had 5,540 clicks on it. In view of the price, that was music to my ears, and I asked him if he was sure. He claimed that 5,540 was, in fact, THE number.

So, I mounted a lens (an 18-200 AF-S VR)...snapped off a quick shot...pulled the card...downloaded the image and then opened it in the Opanda version mentioned above. The result: 15,779 clicks! Over 10,000 MORE than he'd just claimed.

Needless to say, I was stunned...he was mortified...and he couldn't have gotten out of here any faster than he did...

So, now I'm wondering? Could Opanda have been wrong? What do you think? "Inquiring minds want to know."

Many thanks, in advance, for sharing any thoughts...
