I just bought a new s95 from buydig.com and from the looks of it, it looks like someone took it out used it and returned it and I'm the sucker that bought it. Anyone know how do I find out the actuations for this camera before I actually keep it...thanks all

just take a picture and hit the "Disp." button. it should give you an image file #. Chances are thats the amount of pictures taken. Example: IMG0023 means 23 pictures were taken.

I don't think that is going to help. It only shows the number of pictures on the card.

Different camera, but with my Canon P&S I used the method on the chdk web site. You put an empty file named vers.req in the root directory of your card. Turn camera on in review mode, hold FuncSet and press Disp 3 times. This shows the total shutter count on my SX20IS. But I don't know about the S95.

Only if you've at some point reset the counter. Most people just let the image number roll up, and don't zero it out with each fresh card. Of course, the frame number will be low if you try a lot of "dry firings" with no card in the camera.

OK, I see that now, thanks. On my camera, that displays as two numbers, like 108-5678, and the manual says this is the "folder number - file number". I thought the reference was to the numbers below that, like "4/80", which the manual calls "displayed image number / total number of images". Of course these second numbers reset when you erase all images. My file number was about 10% lower than the shutter count. But if I change the file numbering setting from Continous to Auto Reset, it resets to 100-0001 when I erase all images, or format the card.

I had mine set so it restarted the file numbering in a new folder every day AFAIR? I changed that. It was getting confusing - particularly with 5 Canon cameras in the house - all using broadly similar numbering conventions.

I tend to do a Finder script global find & replace on the front of every file I import before I do anything - to identify the camera and the date in the file name.

That's what I use Downloader Pro (external link) for. It automagically creates a folder and file naming for everything as I download it, adds geotags if I remembered to run the GPS, and lets me content-tag and caption my files. You can use EXIF data and original folder and file names or parts thereof in naming.

Fine. I have it macro-ed so it doesn't actually cause me much bother but same idea. One thing that has to be added to the name string with the 7D files is the Canon folder name - eg "103" etc to get rid of any possible file name duplication.

Yep. I do that with DLPro too. Typical file name: C:\DCIM-ALL\DCIM-5D2\100C_5D2\2900\100-2900_5D2.JPG. By taking the first 2 digits of the frame number, DLPro creates a new folder for me every 100 shots, which speeds up directory loads.
