Caveat: Yes I know there are threads on this, but I want an October 2004 thread on it. :)

How many clicks on your cam? In how long?

I just hit 20,600 on my DRebel in four and a half months!!

As Setz (Gordon?) said once to me "now if you were better, Mav, you wouldn't have to take so many."

I hope you carry a backup body... you're not far from needing a shutter replacement.

You mean you shoot weddings and you don't ALREADY carry a backup body?

Dude, you need to resolve that, like NOW, or risk some VERY unhappy clients.

I have shot 11388 as of today. My camera will be one year old in about a week or so.

If you set the date on your camera the Image number will tell you. ex: IMG0107.JPG would be the cameras 107th picture.

Woa... 60674 since 16th June 2004 when I got a replacement FZ10! That seems like quite a lot!

A little over 2000 since May 04

2183 in 3 months and one day... I better get to shootin'! I'm heading back out tomorrow, so I hope to hit 2350 by then. :)

I thought that was a lot... when my camera goes up to the 1,000 mark, it does this:
P1000996
P1000997
P1000998
P1000999
P1010001
P1010002

so, my shooting total is more like 6,500.
Seems a bit more believable!

:) Sounds much better. Your shutter would have micro-rattled your camera to teensy bits by 60,000! I doubt any shutter could ever survive that long.

My SD9 is coming up on 10,000 and I hope to make it beyond 20,000 before I run into shutter trouble.

so how long can a body last? Like a 300D? I'm a bit worried, I have not had alot of time to take pictures and I'm upto 2.500, I got my camera like 1-2 months ago :/ I think when I get into gear I can atleast double that, is there anything I can do to take better care of it to make it last longer? wow I had actually never thought of that *blush*!

Probably during the 7 minutes you forgot to calculate! ;0)

It's about one every 10 minutes...average of 150 photos each and every day!

I'm guessing mavrik doesn't have a wife or kids or job and gets his nourishment from an I.V. hooked into his camera bag!

OOPS! I figured it for only 45 days or 1 1/2 months. But I did allow for charging the battery. Ha Ha.
10/17/2004 04:28:21 PM · #22
LOL!

Mavrik has a fiancee, FOUR kids, and 2 jobs. He also has a fiancee who got an "engagement Canon 10D" today. :) And I average 150 a day - not bad when you consider the 3 weddings I did was about 3000 of those pics in 3 days. That means the other 4 months or so, I "only" took 17000. :)

I've had my D60 for about 2.5 years now and the shutter assembly just started failing on me (no flash sync) so I had it replaced for about CAD 350 (about USD 270).

If you're buying any used digicam, assume you'll have to replace the shutter assembly almost immediately (unless there's a tried and true method of getting a shutter count).

I probably won't replace the camera until Canon finally recovers from its A-DEP brainfart and I can convince my financial advisor that spending a billion dollars on a new piece of electronics somehow makes the world a better place.
