i suggest you to read the manual book will tell you about "shutter counts" where you will find...

My assume that shutter counts tell you as look at picture of below:

I think when you reset the cam, that # will back to "0"

Only on the 1-series. Canon's diagnostic software (specific versions for each camera model) can read it from other cameras, but that's generally unavailable, and very tightly controlled. For the other cameras, just hope noone shoved in a card from another camera, with higher frame/folder numbers and noone did a frame numbering reset.

I don't know how to "check it" but I know mine because I have always formatted my memory cards before shooting so the body maintains the same count, and I haven't pasted 10,000 clicks yet, so the number of the photo coming off the card is accurate (6,xxx right now). After 10,000, I might keep tallies so I know how many I'm at. For instance, 5,000 clicks on the card + 2 tallies = 25,000 total.

I know on Older bodies like the 10D you can roll back the oddometer. I wont say how and I have not dared to try this with my 20D but lets just say when I did roll it back on my 10D I had I was not happy at all and made sure to make sure to tell the buyer of it that the count is not the right one.

I sort of worry about this glitch being in 1D bodies since I am looking to buy one someday. That would suck being scammed into a low shutter count camera when infact it has something like 80,000! Which still ok (probably) would hardly be worth the price I would most likely have paid.

Breezebrowser, in the exifdata, shows an image serial number like this: "118-1886" where "1886" is the image number within the last 9999 - works for 20D and 350D, but not for 5D.

This number doesn't seem to change with cards, but i haven't actually tested.

For a 20D, you can select Auto Reset or Continous from the Set-up Menu. Auto reset renumbers from XXX-0001 every time a card is inserted. It's easy to roll the count to 0001. I originally used that selection because of my file management, not to potentially deceive a buyer of the camera.
