Beside each daguerrotype I put on Flickr, there’s a link that says ” Taken wi' a Nikon D70. Morrrr properties” And on that page, it has all sorts o' wonderful information about th' picture: shutter speed, focal length, sharpness, flash, and morrrr.

Then, near th' bottom, there’s this amazin' statistic ... Total Number o' Shutter Releases fer Camera:

Can ye imagine!  I can be tellin' how many pictures, total, I’ve taken.  That’s superb!

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

If ye have a Flickr reputation, and a camera that keeps track o' yer shutter releases, what’s yer “high score” and yer daily average?  Inquirin' minds want t' be knowin'…  Post yer links in th' comments.

“Th' sad truth be that most evil be done by people who no nay ne'er make up their minds t' be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I be knowin' does trade large portions o' his life fer entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one o' them. In th' course o' writin' this I’ve watched all 13 episodes o' House o' Cards and who knows how many morrrr West Win' episodes, and I’ve spent any number o' blurred hours fallin' down internet rabbit holes. All instead o' readin', or writin', or workin', or spendin' real time wi' people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there be gods and they be just, then they will not care how devout ye have been, but will welcome ye based on th' virtues ye have lived by. If there be gods, but unjust, then ye should not want t' worship them. If there be no gods, then ye will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in th' memories o' yer loved ones.”

...who said it?

“I play wi' variables constantly.”

...who said it?

“Only th' person who has learned Continual Love comin' from a heart o' Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal wi' th' problem o' loneliness.”

I also have a D70, and have been unable t' locate this statistic. I've been told that 'tis contained in th' Metadata, but so far I can seem t' come across everythin' BUT th' shutter count. I'm usin' th' Adobe RAW plugin (by XMP) downloaded from th' Adobe website t' view th' data (in PhotoShopCS)

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