Is 25,000 frames on a 10D a lot?

I'm looking at buying a used 10D and though I'm not sure when it was first purchased it's had 25,000 exposures so far. Is that a lot for this camera? The price of $1300 including a BG-ED and 2 batteries seems fair. Any thoughts?

I don't think its excessive. I am just over 20K and it will be a year in July. It sure doesn't seem like I have taken this many and I think the count is off since I have changed memory card many times and the count seems to stay with the card.

No one really knows how long the shutter will last, could be 50-100K. I think that is a fair price. By the way I am in Henn. co.

My shutter died around 20,000. So unless the previous owner had the shutter replaced you might have to do it real soon.

If the price is $1300, it might serve you to add $200 and get a new one.

OK so how do you find how many shots are on a body?

You don't find out actually, unless you're a Canon service-center. If the camera's counter haven't been tampered with (used CF's in a way that reset it) you can see how many times the shutter have been in use my looking at the filenames on the memory-card. Though, you have no guarantee that this counter is still real.

I have a question too. If my shutter "wears out", is that a small cheap reparation, and then back in business? Or does it simply mean I have to spend a lot of money to replace it? What happened to you guys who got their shutters worn out?

I can't imagine the lifecycle of the shutter mechanisim being 20-25K asa a norm. Not that they are the same, but the 1Ds and MKII shutters are 150K and 200K devices respectively from what I've read. I would hope the average 10D would go for more around 75K actuations before any type of mechanicals are noticed. But hey...... weirder things have been known to occur.....

N*KON claims they got an F5 in to service once, which had successfully fired over 1 million shots with the same shutter :)

Anyway, when I bought the 10D the "word" I heard around the net was that the 10D shutter was guaranteed for 100.000, and the Drebel was for 50.000. That was one of many reasons I choose the 10D.. Apparently that was not true :/ 20.000 is a lot anyhow. I've just passed 5.000 myself, having my cam for over half a year. 2-3 years are probably the amount of time I will keep this camera, so if the shutter could wait dying till then I will be happy :)

I only can speak for the IXUS 300, where I've reached about 13000 shots in two years : The picture counter is again at about 3000, but the directories on the CF-Card are numbered at about 230.
Under 10000 shots, the directories were between 100 and 199
So even while the counter begins again at 0 after 10000, the directory counter keep memory of the 10000s.
This only works of course if you set continous numbering. On the Ixus you can also set that every new card (formatting) resets the counter

The shutters die? 0_0

*WebErika gasps. Thinks about the 14,000+ pics she's taken so far ...

Um ... what is the typical shutter life of a D60?


Cheers,
Erika
Canon D60 always within reach :D

D60 expected shutter life is 45000, D30 is 25000. They can do lot more or little less, the figure is average.

First symptom of "tired" shutter is flash/shutter action getting out of sync. In other words flash fires and shutter opens but you still do not get the flash light into the shot.

You can get a new 10D for about $1500. It really does not make sense to buy a used one for that price.

Not that this has any basis in reality, but I was just speaking with a Canon Technical Rep (out of the Irvine office) who assured me that the D60 was "good for 200,000." I was curious as well, having had the camera for one year and passing the 10,000 mark. I guess if I (or rather, the camera) makes it past 50,000, I would be happy. Perhaps we D60 owners should start socking two or three cents away for each shutter activation so that when the camera does we can either fix same or buy the newest latest.
