      Ron despite having several goes at it I just can't get my EM1 to show me the shutter count. Can you share the method you used please.
      Cheers

        Camera OFF
        Hold down MENU button and turn ON the camera
        Release MENU button and press MENU again to get to Menus
        Go to LCD Brightness Menu, that's in Spanner/Wrench Menu and third item down.
        Press RIGHT to show screen adjusters
        Press INFO and then press OK and on my E-PL1 this shows on screen....
        OLYMPUS E-PL1
        04 01 01 01
        Press in sequence UP/DOWN/LEFT/RIGHT/SHUTTER/UP and Page 1 info appears
        Variously then press RIGHT for Page 2, DOWN for Page 3, LEFT for Page 4 and UP again to get Page 1

        What we are looking for is the information on Page 2, on my E-PL1 it shows (in earlier days).....
        R 002947 [total shot count]
        S 000194 [shot count with flash]
        C 000000
        U 001493 [turn on count which is ultrasonic wave cleaner count]
        V 000000
        B 002396 [total shot count using in-body stabilisation (IBIS)]
        L 000000
        I am at about 100,000 and still going strong. I also use silent shutter a lot, and that saves wear and tear on the shutter. 150,000 is just a guess, and I have heard about E-M1s hitting 300,000 and still running.

          Think DanC.Licks beat me to it.

          I mostly use electronic shutter so not sure if its counts the activations. ( just checked and it does)

          I am only at 3499 so far.

            Hmm thanks Dan but I've done that exact sequence several times now and it doesn't go past the screen that shows the word Olympus and some numbers. After that it just freezes.

              Dave when it works yes it does count the electronic shutter actuations.
              Still can't get mine to show

                Phill,
                Just double checked and the sequence works on my E-M1. I have found though that at times it will fail if the keys are not pressed fully or if I go too fast, especially on the up-down-left-right shutter (all the way) and up sequence. Maybe try taking the battery out and letting it sit for a minute and trying again.??

                    OK I'll persevere.
                    Ron I'm in exactly the same situation as you 3 yrs and only the thumb grip pealed off a bit recently after a very hot holiday in Italy. I fixed mine with a drop of superglue and it's fine.

                              I lied.... (seems to be the true American way of business these days...)... I am only up to 70,000.
