    Before ur shutter can hit that amount, i reckon you'd have changed bodies.

    One of my friend's camera suppose to last 50k, shot more than 70k, another friend same story, should last 50, lasted more in the end, if reach 150k, just change lor, might be quite some time by the time you finish 150k, shooting with my camera for 3 years, I only accumulated 26k out of 150k

    Sorry, but can't help laughing. Not because your question is silly but because I know you are going to invite people who do not hit even 50k to answer a 150k question. :P

    So far I had hit only 60k++ for one of my previous DSLR.

    150k rating is just a nominal figure. Actual life of the shutter depends on your luck. But I have faith in Nikon and believe it will be more reliable than I can ask for.

    Supposingly you shoot 200pics w/o fail everyday, i.e month=6k, 1 year=72k, 2years=144k. It will still take 2 whole years to reach 150k.

    It's pretty hard to reach 150k unless you spam your shutter release everyday for cam-whoring Hah, just kidding. But seriously, Spamming shots is just wasting disk space and time to delete them

    just continue shooting. the SC is just a guide, some may go way beyond it and some may broke down half way.

    if you shoot an average of 1000 photo per month, it will takes 8 year to hit 100 000 count.

    there isn't a need to feel heart pain, it just cost you about $200 to $300 plus to change the shutter if you still owned the body.

    don't need to worry too much, Just enjoy and keep shooting.

    I am quite sure that your camera will not explode nor implode. It definitely won't self-destruct or electrocute you when the shutter expires. It will just simply stop working. Just get it change, rest of the camera should be working fine if you take care of it.

    Do you know that with each breath you made, you are drawing closer to death....slowly. Then should you stop breathing because of it??

    seriously... it actually takes years to reach 100k shutter actuations for an average hobbyist. why worry so much about it? by then u will already be tempted by newer bodies n just upgraded without looking back. just stop worrying about such a thing n go out n shoot.
