    I read that aging shutters usually display a symptom whereby they cannot catch up with the needed faster shutter speeds anymore.

    So say you want to take a pix at 1/1000 sec and the camera thinks it's moving at 1/1000 sec, but actually only manages to move about 1/800 sec, causing exposure problems.

    I know that one symtom is also not being able to do long exposures.

    Most probably 100k is for pro series dSLR. Most consumer dSLR is around 50k. Canon and Nikon is different. Nikon IIRC is less than Canon (don't flame me ).

    Pardon my ignorance here. Am I able to read the shutter count off the camera directly? If yes, where should I be going for my D70 - setup?

    Not sure if it's directly readable off your menu somewhere. For my Olympus E-330, I had to key in some 'secret' button press combination to reach a service menu (meant only for service technicians) that tells me that. Might be better to ask this question in the Nikon forum.

    AFAIK, you can't read shutter count directly.

    You need this software (or others that capable reading shutter count):

    Yup, something like that. But it doesn't work anymore for me.
    A firmware upgrade to my E-330 either disabled it or changed its combo key sequence to something else.
