    How to check Shutter Count in Olympus E-3

    1. Turn on the power switch
    2. Open CF card door
    3. Press "menu" and "OK" buttons simultaneously
    4. Press the menu arrow buttons surrounding (OK) in the following sequence:-
    - UP - WB
    - DOWN - ISO
    - LEFT - Metering Icon
    - RIGHT - AF
    5. Press the shutter release.
    6. Press the RIGHT – AF menu arrow button again and Page 2 screen appears.

    Page 2 details.

    R – current number of shutter activations
    S – current number of times a flash was fired.
    C – current number of times the mirror has been locked up (cleaning mode).
    U – number of times the camera has been turned on (and the ultrasonic wave cleaner activated).
    V - counts two operations:
    [1] number of times the mirror has been locked up in Live View, and
    [2] number of times the AEL button has been used to auto focus while in Live View


    Press the DOWN menu arrow button to access the Page 3 screen.

    Page 3 details

    CS - camera serial number

    MCS - Is the same as the "Internal Serial Number" recorded in the EXIF data of pictures recorded with the camera.

    The 16-digit number contains a variety of information. Here is what we understand so far:-
    Digits 1-4 represent the camera model. 4001 = E-1, 4007 = E-300, 4011 = E-500, 4016 = E-330, and 4046 = E-510.

    Digit 5 is the year of manufacture. For example, "3" equals year 2003.

    Digits 6-7 represent the month of manufacturer. For example, "06" equals June.


    Press the UP menu arrow button to access the Page 1 screen.

    Page 1 details

    L – Lens code.
    F – Flash code.

    Sorry, don't know abut the e-1.
    It's not what inspires us that is important, it's where the journey takes us.

                Wally. I tried this soon after posting the question but tried it again today and got nothing from step 3 onwards. That is, I get the "Olympus E 3" sign but nothing further. Any ideas why it is not working now?
