shutter count

I just ordered the K-3 and am looking to sell some of my other bodies..
How do you determine the shutter count on the ist-DL, K-10D, K-20D ??

REALLY looking forward to working with the K-3...

Easy way to check shutter count

Check Shutter Count & Camera Manufacture Date Online - EXIF Reader




Just make sure you upload an image without any post processing, and you will get the shutter count.

Another alternative is to look at the metadata (Manufacturer info - ShutterCount) with a tool that can read EXIF, especially handy when you can't access the internet.
EXIFTool and EXIFToolGUI (if you don't like command line) are a good choice.

I'm not aware of any issues with the shuttercount metadata...
Besides, sometimes you (or at least, I) don't have the luxury of a reliable internet connection, especially one with a large upload bandwidth...
I agree 100% that the link given works A-ok and is very useful.
