Check shutter count online - My Shutter

I think this is the site most folks go to. I also at the file # on my K5 my last image is # 1201 so I assume I have 1201 shutter slaps.

I just did a check with this web site, pic# 1223 and the site says 1261, so my file count is off by 38.

PhotoME is a common program to determine shutter count. I think it is cross platform.

I use a Mac and find the linux command line tool "exiftool" to suit my needs by piping to grep for the term "shutter". I figure that you are from Sweden, so you may even prefer the command line tool.
