Beside each photo I put on Flickr, there’s a link that says ” Taken with a Nikon D70. More properties” And on that page, it has all sorts of wonderful information about the picture: shutter speed, focal length, sharpness, flash, and more.

Then, near the bottom, there’s this amazing statistic ... Total Number of Shutter Releases for Camera:

Can you imagine!  I can tell how many pictures, total, I’ve taken.  That’s superb!

Anyway, I’ve had the camera since Dec. 25, 2004, and I have taken 1800 shots.  That’s 76 photos a day, on average.  I’m definitely a little photo crazy.

If you have a Flickr account, and a camera that keeps track of your shutter releases, what’s your “high score” and your daily average?  Inquiring minds want to know…  Post your links in the comments.

“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

...who said it?

“I play with variables constantly.”

...who said it?

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”

Quality trumps quantity, so you have nothing to worry about.

I also have a D70, and have been unable to locate this statistic. I've been told that it's contained in the Metadata, but so far I can seem to find everything BUT the shutter count. I'm using the Adobe RAW plugin (by XMP) downloaded from the Adobe website to view the data (in PhotoShopCS)

Any help would be great (emails welcome!!!!)
