You need to download photome to find out the real shutter count number in the EXIF.
Actually
any exif viewer can do the job.

As others have said Image filename/frame count is not a reliable way of keeping the shutter (actuation) count as it can be reset any time:

page 230 of Pentax K20D manual -


and as found using SD(HC) cards that had remaining shots on
(with a filename/frame number that's higher than the one in the K20D's temporary memory) -
could also fool the K20D into using the next consecutive number.

Again as others have said - the true shot count is in the EXIF data under manufacturer's notes in a field called Shutter Count.

If PhotoMe is used do a find (cntrl-F) on the words shutter count and the actuation count is shown.
Vincent: Thanks for the attached info. I did not know that. I guest I need to read the manual more often when I have a question.
