Re: Shutter count and file numbering

I have not seen the shutter actuations count pose a significant issue when selling a camera. I've bought and sold a couple dozen cameras and it is rare that anyone even asks, in my experience.

There are several potential explanations for whatever the folder and exposure number on a camera might be. Many cameras reset them when doing a firmware update, a camera reset, etc etc. The diagnostic tools used by the manufacturer's service techs is usually the only way to get a definitive, credible actuations count. Some older cameras had funky control dances to invoke the diagnostics by a user, but most more modern cameras don't have those easy access capabilities.
