    I am looking at a backup body, and really besides the filename count I dont see any way to check, and that can be reset. Looking at a D80 or D50 specifically.

    Thanks

  2. Get Opanda IExif (free) installed on your computer. Take a jpeg image with the camera. Download to your computer, and look at the Exif data as reported by IExif.

    Specifically the "ShutterCount" item

    Does Opanda show the count for the D50 and such?

    Shows for any camera as far as I know. I used it with a D40X and a D200.

    Opanda or PhotoME... Either one. I prefer PhotoME, updated far more often (almost daily it seems), and much more verbose and feature rich. I don't even know why I have Opanda installed anymore. PhotoME is far and away better. Not sure why Opanda still gets so many recommendations anymore.

    It doesn't support the KM DSLRs, that was why I asked.

    Opanda worked for me.
     
  10. IrfanView works also. And it works on RAW (nef) files.

    Since you're looking for a backup body, you would want to have an image from body you are thinking of buying unless you have the body in your hands for inspection.

    There's a level of trust you need to have with the seller when requesting the image or the shutter actuations...
