Shutter count

Hi there, need urgent help concerning shutter count on my wife`s K-r.
We`re selling it and need the precise count

Attached photo has only been converted from DNG to JPEG, no changes or anything. It`s just an example photo.
Can someone with PhotoME or similar software find the shutter count in the EXIF from this picture?

Cheers,

Tommy.

In order to do that, the EXIF needs to be there. That's number 1. Number 2, the FULL exif needs to be in tact which usually means an original file. Photome is free. Why not just download it and find out for yourself?

BTW, The Sensor is filthy......

1. The sensor isn`t filthy, the lens is. And I used f/40 or something.

2. I know -of course- that the EXIF needs to be there, I didn`t remove it, at least not intentionally.

3. No, it`s not just downloading for Mac, there`s something about needing to have some kind of extra software in order to be able to download the free version...
I had PhotoME on my PC, I don`t have it and need someone to read the file for me...

Thanks anyway...

The forum software appears to strip EXIF, AFAICT. Have you uploaded this image to flickr?

The forum software strips the EXIF whenever one side of the image is greater than 1024 (which our out of camera photos are). Even then, all that will be available is the exposure info.

Nope, that is sensor dust.

Ok, thanks...
The sensor has been cleaned by the official norwegian Pentax repair-center and I took this picture to see if the sensor was completely clean.
Thought it was.

You tried Eyespy, appreciate that...

Larsenio, You won't see dust from the lens on a sensor shot like that. In fact, the lens would practically have to be filled like an hourglass before you see would any real optical affect.
