Yes, in Fuji cameras number of actuation can be fooled accidentally. I found it out when I used my compact card from S2 Pro in my new S5 Pro when it had only about 500 actuations. To my horror when S5 Pro recorded its pictures it shifted to the folder S2 Pro was using. By putting the S5 Pro's card back, it did not revert back to old number. So I accidentally added at least 9999 actuations to it.
So if you ever swapped the cards between any two Fuji cameras, you did it :(.

Hello Devinder, yes, I did swap between this S5 pro, my other S5 pro, my S3 pro and my S2 pro camera (plus my Canon 5d).

If I knew that my number of actuations that I told the guy before I sold the camera was a bit "overly optimistic" I wouldn't make all this research now, but I am absolutely sure that I did not make extra 6000.

Ok, so I will try to investigate further from your information.

Thank you very much indeed.
