In the FILE MENU on the left, there is a magnifying glass, click it, then you will get the FIND bar at the bottom.

My K10D is at 10,090, that seems like a lot, what is the average life of a shutter?

My goodness, according to the recordings on that site, Nikon hasn't made a camera worth a shit since the D2x. I didn't even bother checking Canon, cuz as far as I am concerned, they never made a camera worth a shit!

Too much wine, getting belegerant... time to go to bed.

Try Flickr. If you have an account and upload a lot, the exif data can be retrieved from the photos. Just click on the pic to display it and to the right there is a "More properties tab". All of the EXIF data comes up. The shutter count is displayed.
not seeing it...

Okay, but for anyone else who might wonder: you can pause before typing the image filename, and drag a file on to the Terminal window instead; it will fill in the full path and name for you.

K10D shutter dies at 10,091.

Seriously, I think it's rated for 100K - some people have reportedly gotten double that.

Thanks for posting this Buddha.

It just confirms what I've known all along - Pentax makes really good gear.

Ah, interesting

No wonder i couldnt find it . There's no header called Shutter Count, and i dont have a ' find ' bar at the bottom. I think there may well be something wrong with my Photome prog
Do you use flickr?

You can find it there also.

Let me know.

Hi res - the problem was solved for me when another member pointed out that the photo i loaded into Photome was not 100% original, so i shot 1 photo specifically to load into Photome without any PP.

Like magic, the manufacturers notes appeared and so did the shutter count

WOW!!! Is it working fine?

My K200 is at 3567 and I am wondering, what is the "average life" of K-m/K2000?
