Number of Shutter Actuations on the D2x

  1. "Number of Shutter Actuations on D2x"

    Is there an easy way to find out how many clicks the D2x has? I
    read that you can find this information in Photoshop CS2, but I looked
    in the file info area and couldn't find it.

    I called Nikon and they said they could tell me if I brought the
    camera in. Is there an easier way to do this?
     
  2. The bottom of this page at photo.net shows a link to Windows software that will decode this for you.
     
  3. This might be possible with Opanda software. One of their earlier versions is now available as freeware. It reveals more EXIF data than Nikon's own software.

    the opanda works on my d200 so i'm sure it works on the d2x as well. you have to shoot a jpg though, not raw.

    There sure is, just shoot a JPG image and open it with Opanda
    IEXIF 2. The entry is way down at the bottom so start searching
    from bottom up. For my Nikon D2H this information next to the
    last line. Look for: &#147;Total Number of Shutter Releases for
    Camera&#148;<br>
    <br>
    I don&#146;t have a URL for Opanda and I&#146;m lazy just now so
    try a Google Seach. I&#146;m using the simple freeware version.<br>

  6. Thanks to you all. I found the PS CS2 info with instruction from a friendly Nikonian and now I have more ways of doing the same thing. The photo community is a great resource for the uninformed.

    How about sharing?
     
  8. In PS/CS2, open up your RAW (NEF) file.
    <li>Click on File>FileInfo
    <li>Click on Advanced
    <li>Click on http://ns.adobe.com/exif/1.0/aux
    <p><p>
    and you should see "aux:ImageNumber: 12345"

    The serial number for the camera is in there, as well. There is no need to look all over for that any more. :)
     
  11. Eric:

    Sorry I didn't see your post sooner or I would have given you the same instruction you wound up with. It's nice to know where to go for this and more information than you would ever want to know about the camera and the shot you took.
