My K20d has just over 22,000 shots under its belt. My older K100d has 34,000 + shots. Both are just fine.

I shoot a lot of HDR panoramas (think 45-90 shots per pano), so I shot over 10,000 last year and am at 26,000 right now, I should hit 35k by the end of the year (with some vacations coming up!).

I have 6000 cycles on my K-x. I know it is not a lot since March but I am curious if they provided this model with the same rugged shutter that the K20D, K-7 uses.

My K10D, first and only DSLR, has a shutter count of 37.345, in service since dicember 2006 (just for hobby, mostly nature and macro). No problems so far (had a problem with the aperture control electronics, that was repaired under guarantee time ago).

I just put 7700 on my K10D today.

Glad it's got plenty of life left in it as I don't plan (or need) to upgrade as it does everything I need a camera to do.

My K10d has done 19200. The Fuji F1000fd my partner and myself was using has got 45000.
Just think what 100,000 plus shots would cost in film and processing. We certainly have it good with DSLRs.
There is probably some sort of psychological syndrome now been identified by the shrinks on how people shoot so many pictures on digital cameras. Went to York last week and now I probably appear somewhere on at least 500 images.

My first K10D's shutter count was ca. 6'000 before it was replaced because of a leaning viewfinder. Now my second K10D has 34'000 actuations. Works perfectly and hopefully I can still use it for at least 60k more...

Does anyone knows the expected shutter limit on a K10D ?
Mine has shot a little over 66000 since 2007 so far so good but I wonder for how long...

If you shot only the cheapest b/w film (around $3 a roll/36) and processed yourself using your chemistry parsimoniously (0.50-0.75/roll) around $9800
However I should point out that you would be unlikely to shoot film in the same way you shoot Digital. No HDR for instance, instead you would pick a film that optimises DR for that purpose.
Panoramic stitching?? not likely in the darkroom, easier and cheaper long term to pick up a proper panoramic camera like the horizon at the cheap end and the xpan at the higher end
Also due to cost you are also much more likely to slow down and think about your shot and compose rather than just fire away and pray it works out as some do (not many here i would think)

I would guess between 1972 and 2005 when i bought my ds i likely shot no more than 15-20000 shots, i put about the same on my ds before upgrade fever hit and i bought the k10, not sure where the 10 ended in november when i changed to the 7 but i shoot more and more like i'm shooting film as i hate PP time
aside from lust for more DR or higher iso which will get me to move up eventually I imagine the k7 could last me a very long time even if i did a single in project every month (even this month i don't think I've shot more than a a few hundred shots 11 days in)

oh and if you look at it shooting film would basically pay for a 645d if you can afford the upfront. i can't so for medium format i will be sticking with film until they stop making it

shutter count K10D

My K10D went into retirement - well, semi-retirement - when the new kid on the block arrived in November last year - last count was 66,016 - no - touch wood - problems so far.

Impressive numbers here
My K10d has a death sentence right now. I sent it to repairs after having first 100% green shots.
After an advice in this forum, I downloaded firmware v.1.31 (again) but ended actually then up with only black exposures, no colours or light what so ever.
The message from the repairmen is as follows:
"Demounted the camera, defective main PCB".
The cost? Approx. 600$.
The shutter however was still alive but the cost simply can't justify the repairing of a camera (much beloved one,but still) I was planning to sell anyway..
Owned the camera for 3 years, 34000 exposures.
Now I'm saving up for K-5 (or is it written "K5" like K10d?) and using my wife's K-r in the meantime. Hopefully 2-3 months 'till the great 5 is in my hands

But I'm still sad about my dear K10's short life and would very much like to ask you to play "Air" by Johan Sebastian Bach while reading this, in sympathy for my loss.
Tommy.
