    Is it possible to tell the shutter count on a d40?
     
  2. I have used two programs....Opanda and Irfanview. Both free downloads. Google them and you can install both or either one. I like Irfanview as it works on raw (NEF) files.

    i cant find the shutter count on opanda. what am i doing wrong? :confused:

    i just downloaded opanda (file named "IExif_2.3_en.exe") and looked through all of the different entries but did not locate shutter count. can someone point it out for me? perhaps i am just being blind.

    I use an OLD program for any PC called Exiftool, you can google it and you will find it everywhere. It opens a DOS window when you drop any photo file on the executable and a window pops up loaded with exif info. It's crude but VERY effective, tiny and simple.

  7. Click on EXIF tab on top. Scroll down to the bottom. 6 entries up from the bottom you should see 'Total number of releases for Camera".
     
  8. I just downloaded the free and trial-pro version. The free version has the count but I can't find the count in the trial-pro version. Perhaps you're using the trial-pro version and are having the same problems finding it?

  11. I have a D40 and use opanda. Just as BubbleChamber states, the 6th thing from the bottom of the EXIF screen.

    Neat!

    I have 11,000 actuation, and assuming 36 frames per film, and £6 per film including development, that means that I would have spent about £2000 on film. So, the camera has saved me money!
