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.

Re: Shutter actuations

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?
