    Default how to check shutter counts?

    ive just got a D200.
    im more into sports photography.. so i tend to use high continuous shots. 1 action i can shoot up to at least 5 - 8 pics at a go.

    which i know high shutter counts might actually make the camera wore out faster..
    so how do i check for the shutter counts? and how much is average or over usage?

    Dun worry about it... just keep shooting.

    If you need a figure, check out Opanda iExif. Else when you shoot RAW, there's some data there too.

    RTFM.

    D200 shutter count should be more lasting, don't worry about it - are you a professional? If not then never mind, even if shutter shut down half way also nothing much, just miss out one series lor, then go and replace it.

    Yes, use Opanda IExif to view your shutter count.

    For D200 as of today:
    Average number of actuations after which shutter is still alive: 83,583.6
    Average number of actuations after which shutter died: 134,601.0

    This is taken from http://olegkikin.com/shutterlife/
    It contains camera shutter life expectancy database
    You can check other camera's average shutter life there too..
