for help again. But recently I had a quick yes or no opportunity to buy a Nikon D100 with a Nikon battery grip for $200. On impulse I bought it knowing I would like to have a spare body for a last minute offer to shoot a wedding this coming up weekend. It feels like a good deal for a back up body. The test shots I have taken seem to be acceptable. Definitely yesteryear technology but acceptable. The 180 sync speed is a killer for sure but as a back up for $200 it seemed worth it.

My question is for those of you with advanced exif data viewing capabilities, can you identify the number of shutter clicks on this camera from the image I have posted? I have included a simple shot taken while on a hike with my dog this weekend. I have a mac and can't seem to get the shutter count with either CS3 or Exif Viewer. I know there are additional capabilities with Window machines. Please let me know if there is additional info I can post that would be of help. Good luck and I am very appreciative of any response.

Here you go...

As far as I know on a Nikon the only way to tell shutter actuations is if the camera is set up for a continuous count on the file names. If that's turned off or reset you're out of luck. I've been wrong before so maybe someone else can correct me if I am.

I didn't know you could read exif data from some cameras to get a shutter actuation count. Can you do that with Canon? I had mine set to reset for the longest time, but set it to continuous a month or two ago.

Sorry to hijak, but could someone check this pic and see if you can read it from one of my images?

I am not familiar with Nikon but my EXIF readings didn't show anything resembling a shutter count. I did download a program called "Preview Extractor" specifically for Nikon but I am thinking you need the original RAW file to make it work. Give that a try.

Tom your shot has no EXIF data in it so I can't even try. The only Canon cameras that have reliable shutter count that I am aware of are the 1 series cameras. Any other and only Canon can tell you that.

Dan's on the money with Canon shutter counts. If you ain't got a "1" you can't find out on your own. Only Canon tech can give you a count.

I did some searching through my computer and couldn't find anything. Unfortunate cause I would love to know just how many clicks my DRebel has. I would have to say it is well over 50k. In the last month and a half it has over 3k and that is low average for me. I have had her since Thanksgiving of '03 I think.

Thanks for checking guys. I can find the total number of clicks in CS3 on my other camera. This number differs from the picture file name by about 300. I just don't have the same field available for the D100.

With a little more searching from DBL's advice regarding Preview Extractor, I found that the D100 is excluded from the cameras this info can be obtained from this software. Another site inferred the same.

I guess I'll just have to take the sellers word at around 12k. Not a big deal since I bought the camera anyway. However if the actual count was around 100k, the purchase price of $200 would seem like a not so great of a deal.

Again, thank you for your responses.

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
