Checking activations??

I hve only used Sony superzoom P&S and smaller Nikon and Pentax P&S, but will have 14 day trial on used K200D starting later this week. Exactly what do I do to check shutter activitations. Do I just take a photo and read the number? Thanks.

Well kind of.

The number of shutter activations is stored in each photo's metadata/EXIF.

Download PhotoMe

Use it to open the last photo file taken with the K200D.

Use the Find function (Control-F shortcut)
type in "shutter" in the box (in fact shut is enough) -
PhotoMe displays the shutter count.

Any advice for Non-Intel-Mac users who have no way of running PhotoMe?

Thanks in advance.

Also make sure its a raw file and not a jpeg.

Look for exiftool. It's command-line though, but it will give you every bit of EXIF data in a file.

A JPG will work as long as it hasn't been modified.

This is what you are looking for..
