Hello All,
Is there any way to check the shutter count on an sx20? I'm considering buying one but would like to know it's shutter count if possible. Thanks, Ralph

Yes there is a way, via the CHDK people. You place an empty file called "vers.req" in the root directory of an SD card, using a card reader and PC. Put the card in the camera and turn the camera on in Review mode. Hold Func Set down, and press Disp 3 times. This shows you page 3 of the diagnostic screen. "Total shoot" has the shutter count.
