    As far as I know, there is no DSLR today that provides that information to the user (eg through a menu selection or command).

    The shutter information is only available to the camera manufacturer's technicians (presumably they have to use a special app to query the camera's electronics).

    A simple way to keep track yourself ...
    1. Make sure camera is set to do sequential numbering of imgs
    2. Keep track of when the counter changes (typically its a cycle from 0001 to 9999)
    3. That should give you a rough gauge of how many times you have tripped the shutter.

    Of course, the above falls down if:
    a) you regularly trip the shutter without a memory card (thus no img# generated)
    b) different numbering schemes are used for different types of files (eg for NEF/RAW, JPEG, TIFF, etc)

    In short, without going back to the camera manufacturer, Ordinary Joe User will not be able to get accurate shutter information.

    IIRC, Jed mentioned the Kodak DSLR does show the shutter count...

    For some Canon models, you can send to the service center and request them to check for u. The have a software to gather the data.

    a case of wrong spelling. original poster of this thread spelled shutter as "shuttle". n ronald susilo is singapore's top badminton player. hence can ask him for the "shuttle" count. tongue in cheek.

    Interesting, you need to pay for such service.
    I've not pay for such service, to me as well as those users (you know who you are) its a compliment service.
