Shutter Count on a New K30

Hi I've just recieved my first DSLR, the Pentax K30. I did my first shot and check the shutter count online and the result shows the following:-

113??? It should be 1. Should I be upset? or is this normal with new cameras?

Completely normal. It really seems like it should be zero but don't worry about it.

edit: just checked and my K-7 came with 430 on the shutter.

+1. That is normal and parts of the QA process.

Now I don't know if I should be happy or mad, mine was on 0 out of the box, so it wasn't checked

First shot I took with my K 30 shows shutter count of 4. Filename was IMGP0001.

Interesting, lots more info than the typical EXIF info my software shows.
