    Is there a way to determine the number of actuations using a Nikon
    D80?

    Neither Nikon Browse nor EXIF Viewer show a shutter count for the D70 so I'm
    beginning to doubt that it's there for that camera,

    that's why i said any *decent* exif utility will show it. most exif
    tools don't show all the tags. also, early nikon dslrs, such as the
    d100, d1, etc. do not write the shutter count field.

    I think it has to do with this line:

    Exif Version : 0221

    Earlier cameras had earlier versions of the Exif software. I have
    cameras with Exif v.0120 and 0220 that do not show the shutter count. My
    D80 is v.1220 and does show it.

    i never looked at the version field, but i do know that some current
    canon cameras do not write out a correct value to the shutter count
    field. of the few images i've looked at, it is very obvious that the
    number is totally wrong; for example, it might be 5 or 6 when it is
    quite clear significantly more photos have been taken.
