Try downloading the Photome software.
Take a photo with the camera, transfer it directly to your PC, with Exif intact.
Photome can read the "Shutter Count" number embedded in the Exif data.

When I got my camera the "Shutter Count" was 276 and not 0 ?, is that ok ?, or that's the normal Quality Control testing before shipping from factory ?, thanks

Brosen, your shutter count is fine. The factory performs test shots to confirm everything is working okay with your camera before shipping it out.

As far as finding the shutter count on a Mac, the only program I've successfully used to determine it is Graphic Converter. Check out this PentaxForums thread for more details (see Robert S Donovan's post):

Here is the direct link to the Graphic Converter download page:
