HOW TO CHECK IF YOUR Nikon Digital SLR is REALLY BRAND NEW

First of all, when you turn on the camera for the FIRST TIME, the camera will asked you to choose a language and then to set the date/time.

(Read the "BASIC SETUP" part in the instruction book of your Nikon DSLR):

"A language-selection dialog will be displayed the first time the camera is turned on.

Choose a language and set the time and date. Photographs can not be taken until

you have set the time and date".

Secondly,

The shutter actuations (shutter clicks) of your FIRST picture taken with the camera must be showing as "1".

To check your shutter count/clicks:

First of all, you must format the memory card INSIDE your camera (using the camera's format function).

Next, take a picture using the freshly-formatted memory card; then download the picture into your computer.

Then check the shutter count (use Opanda EXIF viewer or http://www.myshuttercount.com orhttp://www.shutteractuations.com/ ).
