    Nikon d90 shutter limit

    So i bought a used Nikon d90 and it has around 15000 shutter actuations and i recently read on a website that it is limited to around 20000. is this correct? and when its dead where can i get a shutter replacement?

    Every camera shutter survival rate will be different but from what I understand Nikon has tested their shutter system up to 100,000 clicks. I would expect that to be average. Some will fail before that but you probably can expect the shutter to go well beyond that number. You should not suffer a shutter failure for a very long time and by then you will probably want more up to date technology.

    Mr. Bautsch is correct. Here's the official word from Nikon. Note that the D90 is tested to over 100,000 cycles. I know a guy who has over 250,000+ and it still works like a clock.

    The information regarding shutter actuations is hidden in the EXIF data of each photo taken. To find the number you can down load a simple program (free) that will display the count on the last photo taken. I've never used the program. I'm not that curious about it. However here it is. If you want more information about the subject just Google: D90 shutter actuation count (or any other Nikon dslr camera).
