  • Who has the most used camera?

    Ok it's silly thought, but Mike's question made me wonder if there is anyone out there that has a high shutter count.

    I can only lay claim to a mere 2018, but do use several cameras and being an old school film user don't tend to think of multi-sequence or auto bracketing

    My E510 which I've owned since Nov 07 has a shutter count of 007347.

    Slighty off topic but does anyone know what the other numbers and letters on page 2 mean?

    Cheers

                  E-1, 8230
                  E-510, 2265
                  E-420, 1725

                  Thats over the last two years and as a previous film user I tend to pick my shots rather than machine gun.

                            My E-3 has 42556 (since December 07)
                            My E-510 has 3500 (since march 08)
                            My E-500 before it died has 101658 (July 07 - March 08)

                            I believe my music and sports photography has something to do with the high shutter count. oops

                              A lot of 'burst' shooting I presume.

                              Still thats going some - I look forward to your 200K report on the E-3, sometime late next year I expect.
