Shutter count

How or can a person bring up the shutter counts on a K200?

There are a few software programs like PhotoMe that are simple enough. If you upload to flickr you should see the shutter counts in the exif properties listed with the image.
PhotoMe is available as a free download and seems vert popular round here.

For the Mac, use exiftool (google that). It's free, and displays the full exif information, including shutter count.

Keep in mind, a new body may show 200or300 actuations. I don't know if they actually trip the shutter that many times at the factory, but that is what all my bodies showed when new right from the box.

For a Mac you don't need any extra software at all. The OS will do it for you.

Todd, could you expand on this statement a bit? I'm using Snow Leopard. I have used the expanded EXIF data option in iPhoto.

Thanks,

Open an image in Preview.app (I think it has to be an out-of-camera image, whether raw or jpg). Hit Command + I and click the EXIF tab.

I don't know about preview.app, but in photome image number and shutter count are both listed as shuter count goes up even when using liveview and image no. can be reset.

I was under the impression that "image number" and "shutter count" were two different things. The shutter count on my K100D is up to 12,000 something, and my image number is only 9700 and a bit more.

Welll...Preview has always been accurate for my Nikon cameras. But I just tried it with a Pentax file and that field doesn't exist. Not on PEFs, DNGs. or jpgs.

Thats what I was trying to convey....iPhoto/Preview do not show shutter counts (Pentax)with a MAC. I have yet to see it anywhere using my 09' MAC Mini and the latest OS.

So with me "myshuttercount" is the way to go.

You are correct. They are TWO different descriptions.

I guess I must have missed where you said that. Maybe in a different thread?

At any rate, it appears to be the case, and it's kind of annoying....wonder why it's this way?
