How to find the shutter count of a K10D?

I'm not having too much luck on the way to find out the shutter count of my K10D. Can anyone out there show me how to do this? Pentax always takes days before they answer!
Thanks
Richard

Run ExifTool on the last picture you took.

ExifTool by Phil Harvey

Sample Output

Shutter count is about halfway down.

What a quick answer, guys, and thank you, it works well with shuttercount and I'll keep the link.
As for exiftool, it really is intimidating because I don't have the technical expertise that allows me to fool around in Terminal on mac - that's programing stuff.
As I see it, in Terminal, to run exiftool you have to go to the root file...: properly type DIR/exiftool FILE where DIR is the root file name and FILE is the photo file name. Problem: I can't find that DIR, in any library...in fact I can't even find exiftool any where? Boriscleto, thanks for your sample Exif, can you show the path going to DIR (macintosh HD/library/...), assuming you have a mac...?
I'm interested in that Exif stuff but it's not really a "need to know" thing.
Thanks again

Just open Terminal, type exiftool, and drag the file to the terminal window. It will automatically add the path, no need to type it out.

As far as I can tell ExifTool is the only program on the Mac that shows shutter count.

A nice freeware is Photome: PhotoME - Exif, IPTC & ICC Metadata Editor. I can recommend it highly and it is very useful to read the EXIF from any photo.

Thanks for the info on PhotoME, hcc, I'm finding out about how to run .exe apps on a mac that I wasn't planning on and I'll have to talk to a friend who is doing that.

Boriscleto, can I contact you via the forum mail, I'm still having some trouble? Thanks
Richard
