Question about K20D or K10D

Can anyone of k10d or k20d users tell me, how to know how many shots you have already taken in a session..
i know on the top lcd or in the viewfinder you can see the remaining shots.. is it possible to see the number of shots, you've taken? in a session.

not exactly, but in the photo review mode, you can see the photo numbers, just go from last to first (right arrow when on last) and you will be able to calculate this.

Also the photo number is prefixed by the directory on the card. pentax only stores 500 shots per directory, therefore if you see a new prefix i.e. change from 100-XXXX to 101-XXXX you know you have gone over 500 shots on the card.

also note, you can always reset the counter at the start of the session, then the image number for the last shot is the number of shots.

I just wait until I process the photos and sort them in my image library program, Expression Media.
