    yeah, shutter count is rather important
    Basically, something you should look out for while buying second hand
    prices vary depending on the counts

    I just bought a Canon 450D, within the first week, i chalked up 1799 shots, and the week isn't over yet.. I usually double-shoot each shot so that if the first shot isn't OK, there's a second opinion to choose from..

    Estimated shutter life for the 450D = 50,000 (Unconfirmed?)
    Estimated shots-per-week = 2,000
    Estimated Weeks lifespan = 25 weeks (0.48 yrs)

    If i continue to shoot 2,000 shots a week, I will run down my shutter in half a year? That's scary numbers to think about...

    IF the lifespan is really 50k, and IF you shoot 2000 shots every week.

    So IF the shutter really fail before the warranty expired, you can get it replace for free, than why should you worry so much?

    Talking Re: Shutter Count

    In the past they shoot less due to constraints of film and spending
    Now that we have DIGITAL, you are still scrimping the neligible shutter count? Oh man... thats real sad lah... just shoot more.... i think my index finger will break before my camera does.


    In summary: I bought a DSLR to shoot more.... Not less
    PS:Unless u are a camera trader that cares about the resale value of your camera, just shoot!

    I usually use Exiftool to check my shutter count. It's awesome as it works for linux, mac and win

    (Disclaimer: Only used it on linux so....)

    Shutter count is mostly irrelevant unless you are selling your camera very soon. I'm trigger happy. I don't need to bother about development costs. There is no telling when a helicopter will crush me to death, so I'm in the opinion of using my equipment to its limits. (then when it breaks down time to bbb new toys! j/k)

    warranty cover shutter replacement? is it worth paying canon $150 to extend the warranty by 2 more years (becomes 3-yr warranty) then? will the 2nd and 3rd yr cover shutter?

    for me, first week just passed, and i've shot 2800 on my shutter count liao.. if shutter replacement is covered, and i get to change for free, i can shoot like mad every week..

    I just called Canon Singapore to ask about the warranty. Crossposted to this post (http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showpost.php?p=4704501&postcount=783).

    In short, the threshold for the 450D by Canon Singapore is 50,000. If shutter dies below 50,000 and under warranty, FREE. If shutter dies above 50,000 and under warranty, shutter cost (~S$50) will be charged.

    As for me, I still shoot as I do, $50 sounds like a reasonable amount to pay for the photos I get out of the camera.
