I just found out that live view will increase the shutter count every time it's activated even though a picture may not have been taken. Sure enough that explains why my D800 EXIF data shows 700 pictures taken but the number of actual images based on file number is only 359. I shoot most of my landscapes in live view and manual focus for image sharpness. The penalty is that each actual picture counts as two shutter actuations. If you shoot a movie, it counts as a shutter click, but if you leave it in live view, starting and stopping movies does NOT affect shutter count.
