D70 Shot count

Discussion in 'Digital SLR' started by google.20.jbloggs, May 11, 2005.

  1. Is there a way to know how many photos a D70 has taken? It seems to
    reset the count every time you format the CF card.

    Thanks,
    Joe

    How?
    (I know you can reset the default to not reset)

    Without having the camera handy, it's in the EXIF data. I just viewed
    EXIF using IrfanView, and it's in the next to last line: Total pictures.

    Scroll down to the 'shutter count extractor' bit:

    This was the first hit on google, there are probably other ways too.

    Go to the menu identified by an icon of a wrench, and find the
    "File No. Seq.". This should be turned "ON", and it will keep a
    continuous sequence of file numbers.

    I go into the same sub-menu at the beginning of the year, and
    select "Reset" to restart the sequence -- because I got up to about 6000
    by the end of the first partial year, and the maximum is (of course)
    9999, based on the available number of digits in the filename format.
    (Unless it will replace the '_' with another digit at need. I haven't
    tested that, yet.

    But I also put the images from each download batch into a new
    subdirectory anyway, so repeating filenames would not be a serious
    problem for me.

    Enjoy
    DoN.

    I don't see that one with the unix exiftool -- but I *do* see:

    Shutter Count : 4807

    However, that is too low for the total shots, since I believe that have
    taken over 6000 shots the previous year.

    Enjoy,
    DoN.

    I got 21,000!!! I don't think I've taken that many??? I know I've
    rattled off hundreds playing with the burst mode and maybe thousands
    doing time lapse but no way I shot that many. Oh well.


    This might be a good thing to check when buying a "new" camera.
