The K-X has been tested to 100,000 actuations it says in the manual. Which is not bad.

To find out what your camera is up to, you need to look at the meta data from a recent photo.
An application like "PhotoME" (free) works fine. Look under "Manufacturer Notes" section, item "Shutter Count". Mines around 8000.
