    D700 shutter count - extremely low!

    I have the chance to buy a D700 with a shutter count of only 896.

    This seems extremely low - brand-new like, infact.

    Should I be suspicious? can the shutter count be manipulated?

    Many thanks.

    AFAIK, it cannot be changed.

    If you have the change to get your paws on it before forking over the bucks, bring a laptop with you and take a shot so you can verify the count with an exif reader.

    Some people think file numbers are the same as shutter count. The former can easily be manually reset to 0, and in Nikon's case, resets to 0 once the file numbers reach 9,999.

    Good point Sparky. I can see how that mistake can be made if you don't know the difference or don't want someone else to know the difference.

    Only nikon can zero the shutter count when servicing cameras, example on the shutter replacement on the D750 recall but they still don't zero it then as it reflects on wear and tear on the rest of the internal parts. Like suggested more likely a current photo count.

    The only way to really check the shutter count easily is to take a photo and upload it to a site like https://www.camerashuttercount.com/

    This will give you the true shutter count. Like 480sparky said the file numbers can be reset by the user and they only go to 9,999 anyway.

    Opanda can display it on a computer sans a 'net connection.

    Buy it... depending on the price though.
    I'm not a pro photographer. I just play one on TV.

    I think everyone should follow and do. Please do not assume we know what's in your camera bag, I left my magic mind reading hat at the repair shop because it does not work past my computer screen.
