Shutter count.

Just a quick question. Where do I find the shutter count on my k20d and k5?

Check EXIF data from a Pic taken on the respective bodies.

You can use ExifTool or PhotoME - Exif, IPTC & ICC Metadata Editor

I'm sure I'm pointing out the obvious here, but it's certainly *much* quicker to download a 3 Meg tool such as ExifTool (Mac or PC) and have it available for future use than uploading a picture to a website for this info.

Plus with ExifTool, PhotoME, and others you have access to full exif data, not just shutter count, instantly.

Living and learning...

As we say here in Brasil (yes... we write it with 's' and not 'z' ;-) ), "living and learning".
I had no idea I could discover my shutter usage by net!!
Thanks you all guys!!
