    If you're using Nikon DSLR, download OPanda IExif. http://www.opanda.com/en/iexif/index.html
    Shoot a frame and open with IExif, there is an entry which contains the number of shutter releases.

    Post note: D100 doesn't seem to embed this data. Don't know about D1 series. Should be ok with D70, D200 and D2 series.

    simplest and safest way, go to the canon service center at harbourfront.

    1/2 hr~ or so, they will tell you.. of cos you'll have to pay them la.. iirc its about $20.

    i believe you can get a software (cancount?) to check the 1 series canon dslr cameras

    you can not check the shutter count on the other canon dslr. you have to send it to CPS for checking.

    Get Nikon. It seems like for Canon, you need to visit the service centre very often like that. I only visited the Nikon service centre once, to buy some accessories not available anywhere else.

    I think this strongly reinforces my view that Canon only makes gadgets, Nikon make REAL cameras!

    heh, i visited NSC just once so far.

    and i'm less than pleased with their slowness at servicing lenses and to top it off, the guy who served me has a distinct lack of knowledge in his company's products! he din't even know what names the lenses are and can label them wrongly...

    i've pleasant experience with Canon thus far. responsive and responsible.

    This I'll have to agree.. But I am more glad that I don't need to visit them so often. It was very bad with Shriro.
