How many pictures has my camera taken? How many will it take?

Nikon cameras incorporate a shutter mechanism capable of moving extremely fast, with shutter speeds up to 1/8000s. With all mechanical processes, however, it will need to be serviced or replaced at some point.

There is no method to accurately tell the total number of times your camera's shutter has been released. There are third-party software applications designed to read a cameras shutter count, but this method is not always accurate because the shutter release times may be reset by a firmware update or cleared due to a replacement of parts when serviced.

Based on testing, we can estimate the average number of shutter releases (also referred to as actuations or cycles) that can be expected before probable shutter failure. The actual number of shutter cycles may be higher or lower.

Data is only available for the models listed below.
