XXXD series - 40,000 shutter count.
XXD series - 100,000 shutter count.
XD series - 200,000 or 300,000 shutter count.

CSC mentioned that the camera shutter unit can last 10-20 % before it start having problems, ie. underexposed photos..

www.photonotes.org and www.the-digital-picture.com

after that count, the shutter unit may start having problems. fm CSC, your camera may not work when the shutter unit died. shutter curtains cannot open, so u cant take pictures.

Curious, does anyone knows what are max shutter counts for Nikon cameras ? D300 listed in the specification as 150K, what about models like D80 and does it follows similar ones for Canon as listed in the above thread DX, DXXX, DXX ?

add on a few lines. the shutter spec is just a guideline, it doesnt mean your shutter wont fail before that rated number.

as for a Nikon request on a Canon subforum.. :think: abit OT but here goes. some marketing claims, but the figures are there.
D200 (page 5) - http://www.nikonimaging.com/global/products/digitalcamera/slr/d200/pdf/D200_24p.pdf
D2X (page 3) - http://www.nikonimaging.com/global/products/digitalcamera/slr/d2xs/pdf/D2xs_16p.pdf
D300 (page 10) - http://chsv.nikonimaging.com/global/products/digitalcamera/slr/d300/pdf/d300_28p.pdf
D3 (page 14) - http://chsv.nikonimaging.com/global/products/digitalcamera/slr/d3/pdf/d3_40p.pdf

AFAIK, there is no known spec/claim written for D80.
edit:
here is a link of some D80 Users claim of shutter usage.. (there are other cameras, of various makes) in the list there too.

how long is the life span of yourself?
simply put, each different cam (not even model) have different "life span"

on tested average, i can only say 50k for the lower end and 150-300k for the higher end

I do not think shutter count is the life span of dslr since it can be easily replaced at a reasonable cost as previously discussed in a thread.

This link will provide you with users' inputs on their camera shutter life -> http://olegkikin.com/shutterlife/

Hope this helps. :)

many cameras able to use for many years, some people still using 10D, or D100.

but most people under utilize the cameras.
buy or upgrade to new camera before the existing camera brake down.

so don't worry.
