I got the Nikon refurb on Amazon which was shipped by "North To South." It was actually shipped with a bad charger, but they took care of me promptly on that.

Where is the setting on the 7200 to see how many shutter accuations (?) have occurred in the life of the camera? I couldn't find it obvious anywhere in the menu. Was curious how "used" the camera was.

So far I have been very happy with the 7200 and it feels and looks new to me. The image quality, speed and focusing is a significant step up from the D90. Using the same lenses as in the past, it seems like the pictures are brighter and sharper. I know that's kind of vague, but so far so good.

I did a little video with the camera and that experience was marginal. The focusing while filming video isn't that good on first impressions. Even when I have continuous AF on (I think) I seem to have to depress the shutter halfway to command an autofocus when I can see the image isn't clear. And as you know, in daylight it is virtually impossible to tell anything looking at the little screen. I'll have to get one of those video/viewfinder hoods that magnify the screen for you and shield it from the light.

In any case, wanted to thank everyone for the feedback prior to purchase.

Nikons are awesome in this aspect, set the output to jpeg mode, take the jpeg and upload to a site like this one http://www.nikonshutte​rcount.com/ (external link)

Apparently Nikon embeds their shutter count and it is only removable through complete board and shutter box swap out (or so claims the internets!)

Thanks! I think my camera had less than 2000 pictures taken when I received it. So that's still pretty darn new.
Your site worked just fine, I also found that as I'm on a Mac, I can just find it in the Preview tool, under Inspector.
