How do I tell how many clicks my camera has taken?

Hi. I have a K-x. How do I tell how many clicks the camera has taken? I've heard they are rated for 100,000 so I figured there must be a way to see how many pictures have been taken with it.

It will show in the maker section of the EXIF. Use a viewer like exiftool to see.

There are also online checkers search for "pentax shutter count".
