Hi all, Got my 5DMK2 yesterday, and charged the battery etc. :-) When I bought it in the shop, it looked like the salesperson cut one plastic protective sticker so that he could open the box, so all seemed ok. I used a CF card I used in my 40D, which had been formatted in the 40D, and took two photos out of my window, and the number on the card was photo number 0114 and 0115. Does this men that it actually wasn't brand new out of the box, or should I not even think about it? BTW with just the 2 shots I have taken so far Ilove the shutter much better than my 40D.

did you re format the card on the 5d2? it's probably continuing from the 40d.

If you love it and it's working fine then great. At least you've got one :p But if you feel you need the comfort, call the shop and tell them about it and ask if they've got one to exchange it with.

That's happened to me before even after format with the camera. It continued from my old camera. I'm sure that might be it.

It continues from the old camera. When I used my CF card from the 40D, my brand new 5D MK II that had the seal on it counted 3,018. You're totally fine. As long as the camera starts up and the first thing that it asks you to do is set the date & time, then you know it's new. You can reset the file counter, but I left it as is so it is consistent in my Aperture library.

What if you put in a new unused CF? Assuming that you might purchase more memory now that you have a 21MP FF.

All you have to do is pull the button battery out to force a date/time reset.

Then it will start at 0. You can always reset the counter at any time. I actually like the fact that they continue the file numbering. It makes it easier to organize your files in chronological order by file name index.

I guess you can do that too, but I'm pretty sure that the OP did not have a used camera. There's a utility that you can use to actually see the actual shutter count. Just do a search in the forum for it.

It happened to me recently, I recharged my battery before going to a shoot, and when I got to the location, I realized that I had forgot my memory card at home. Good thing I had a back up in my bag. It was my old card from my 20D.
I had about 5500 clicks on my 30D and it jumped to 9500 because of the old count. And when I putted the original card in it, it still has the high numbers in.

This sucks, because I'm thinking of selling it to get a 5DmkII, and now it shows 0224. So it looks like it has a lot more clicks then it really dose.

is their a trick to put it too about 7200, whitch would be more accurate?

Why would anyone care about 100 shots?


cheers, juice (Canon shooter, Elinchrom lighter, but pretty much agnostic on brands.)
