Hi,

Has anyone used myshuttercount.com as a quick alternative to PhotoMe?

Basically is it safe to use and is it accurate.

Regards, Chris.

You have to uploasd an unedited file though, so all EXIF data is intact. Did the RAW files from both my cams easily enough.

If you set the camera to memorise the file number, the camera counts continuously anyway. I know how many exposures I have made on all my cameras because it's the same as the file number. Any testing exposures the factory has done are not particularly relevant, I would have thought anyway.
Best regards, John

Hi John,

I've always set my cameras to reset the file number every time I wipe the card.

When I'm taking on average 300 photos per stock car meeting I personally find it easier to work this way.

My Samsung GX10 shutter count according to myshuttercount.com is 17704.

My K7 is 4557 - but I didn't buy this until about 3 quarters of the way into the 2010 racing season.

Regards, Chris.

The problem is if you swap cards with another pentax user, then it will use whaterver is the higher number - I added 4k to the file number by borrowing my dad's camera, using my memory card in that, then putting my card into my own camera later in the day.

Exif info still showed the correct shutter actuations though.

In what circumstances would uploading a (20Mb or so) RAW file to this website be quicker than opening the RAW file in PhotoMe?

Wouldn't a resized jpeg saved at minimum quality work equally well? All the exif is intact.

Edit: No it doesn't!

You can upload a camera jpeg though.

If you bracket a shot or do a multiple HDR then it adds the number of shutter actuations to the camere but not to the picture count as you obviously only get one jpeg at the end of it. Same when you do a preview.

If you have done non of these things then your numbers should match ... otherwise they won't.

Presumably as you don't have to download and install a program before you are able to check your shutter count.

You also don't have another hardly ever used program cluttering up your PC. I have only checked my shutter count once, when selling a camera.

I use the program often, and not just for shutter counts !
so it's well worth the download
