    Default The actual Shutter Count of new DSLR?

    Hi guys...

    Anyone knows how to check the actual shutter count of their D200?
    Like to know before we actually buy the cam, how many times could have the sale persons took it out of testing already?

    Regards
    Simon

    When you buy a new set, does the box come sealed or something ?
    Salesman test test, shoot a few shots still ok, whats more worrying is another customer may have bought this set and returned it back.

    I bought my D200 last week from AP and after shooting around 20 or so image, i check against a program and found the actulisation was around 40!!! Upset but ok...
    Their recipt indicated no returns of goods wants sold!!! So guess its not a return set..

    seriously that 20shutter is nothing... can't expect people to buy without even trying.
    some might take a few shots and decide to choose another camera. (deciding between brands/model)
