    Do you shoot?

    Ever since I got my CP4500, I've averaged about 15K per year.

    How about you?

    But its around 7000 per year I'd say. Lack of time !

    Depends , are we counting just keepers or all shots ? There might be a big difference between the 2 :biggrin:

    it depends

    Maui in 2005, I took over 8k clicks in two weeks on my d70.

    Colorado in 2006, I took 3k on the d200 in a week.

    In the non-travel normal world, I take roughly 1k a month typically in 3-4 shoots. Just messin around and i bracket alot, play with dof, etc.
     
  6. Quality not quantity I say. Not to much free time but I guess about 2500 to 4000 a year

    It depends. I'd estimate 10k/year (I've only had my D50 6 months, up to 5200 shots on it). I don't have much time sometimes (and when I do I usually get unlucky with the weather, dang June Gloom). I've taken 500 shots in an hour before (ONE of which went in my gallery), and I've taken as few as 50 shots in a month (full time college student + 30 hours/week robotics team). It fluctuates a lot.
     
  10. It really depends too, I have some time constraints, and I know weather usually plays a factor with me too. I have shot about 5300 with my D200 since March when I got it, but come December till about early Feb, it is either too cold or rotten out to go shooting, plus it gets dark too quick.

    40,000

    And last year was around 50,000, but that includes some weekends of 3-4 thousand images at dance and other events,
     
  12. 30,000 + on a slow year since going to DSLR but yea, who's counting... Quality should be mission number one however at times quantity may be needed to get a few high quality pictures :smile:

    I can't count but I've put around 80,000 clicks on my bodies since September. Not that any of them were worth looking at, of course... :)

    When I got my first dslr, a D50 about 2 years ago. I logged about 23k on it in the first year.

    upgraded to a D80 and only put about 5k on it the 2nd year. now I have a D200 coming. maybe this year it will only be about 1k :)  but I hope not.

    Yes, us bird shooters do tend to fire a few shots. A weekend of birding is easily a 400/500 shot trip:) 

    I'm sure I shoot 10K of my 15k in four summer months.

  20. About 5500 keepers a year. Back in the 90's it was twice that.
