Whenever I check the shutter count on a body, I'm always astonished by how few frames I've actually taken. I remember back when I sold my 1D2 which I'd owned for about 3 years I sort of thought it would be a million billion, but it was under 50k
I've had my 5D3 for a month now. Decided to check the shutter count last night. Only 1026 actuation! Really? Wow, would have thought it was much higher, it is winter, so I it's not especially photography weather, but even so, feels like I've done a lot of photography.
Still, I suppose that's a roll of film a day. Sounds a lot when you put it like that
At my level of usage the shutter should last over 10 years (and with the 5D3, I actually kinda feel like I could happy use this camera until it dies on me). I think I'm also just having to shoot less frames with the 5D3 vs the 5D2 to get what I want -- esp at wide apertures....
Just curious, how many shots a month do other people take? Be very interested to hear from pros too
