How to Learn the Shutter Count? Fujifilm Shutter Count

Learning the name is as complicated as learning the number: Some call it the number of shots; some say the number of curtains, some say the number of shutter. There are people who say Shutter Count. In this article, I also discussed the shutter number (the Shutter Count – the number of shots). The first part of my article will be about learning the shutter count of the camera in general. In the second part, it will be about learning the Fujifilm Shutter Count. Don’t be afraid, learning shutter is not that hard. I have tried to explain in detail the methods of learning the shutter count of all kinds of cameras below.

What is Shutter Count?

What we mean by the Shutter Count is how many photos a camera has taken after its production. You might say, ‘Oh dear, no matter how many photos he takes, what’s wrong with us?’ While it really means nothing to some of us, it is more valuable to some of us than the camera. Automatic, manual and online shutter count learning methods are in the continuation of my article.

What is shutter count and why do we care about shutter count?

It is useful to make an analogy to answer the questions. We can compare the number of shots of cameras to the number of kilometers of a car. Just as cars with excessive mileage need to be renewed, especially the engine; In machines with a large Shutter Count, some parts, especially the curtains, may need to be renewed. In a way, the curtain life is over.

What should be the number of shutters?

It would not be correct to give an exact number for life. Because the machines are produced in such a way that they can take pictures in different numbers while they are being manufactured. For example, the theoretical shutter life of a Nikon D5 professional series camera is 500 thousand. Likewise, the theoretical life of the Nikon D3000 camera is 100 thousand, and the Canon 600D is 150 thousand. The figures mentioned are the theoretical lifetimes. As a matter of fact, many cameras can easily extend the life of the screens set for them. Recently, I saw an advertisement on Canon 1DX’s 620,000 screen number on a second-hand advertisement site. How this issue came to be is a separate article; But as you can see, if the machine is taken care of, we can easily extend the life of the curtain.

What happens if Shutter expires?

Answer: Nothing happens. You can change the pitch and continue shooting. Curtains  are not expensive either. So this is not such a big deal to worry about.

As it can be understood, the shutter count is a frequently questioned concept, especially in second-hand camera purchases. Buyers want to know how many shots the camera they want to have has. Therefore, they buy-sell or set a price according to this number. Since it is an important criterion, I will explain how to look at the shooting numbers of many current camera brands in the following paragraphs of my article.

I am so sorry 🙁

While users value the number of screens so much, why don’t manufacturers embed this information in the ‘exif info’? Unfortunately, I could not find an answer to this question. I mean, I don’t understand what a joke it is to trouble people for nothing. However, any information about the photo can be embedded in exif. In fact, some manufacturers are now making a breakthrough in this regard. There are models in their menu where you can see the number of shots. Fujifilm in particular seems to have heard the wails of users in this regard. Now let’s look at how to find the shutter count for Fujifilm cameras.
