p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Brand new D800E with 1700 clicks?


So I just picked up a D800E from adorama and noticed right after booting it up, it's got 1700 clicks on it already.

So either it's been used and sold to me as new? Or these things start there image numbering at 1700 for some arbitrary reason.

What do you guys think?

Was it refurbished ? How much did you pay for it ? What did the ad say ?

That's the meaning of "brand new" .

Did you get the 1700 from the file name or the EXIF data? Either way the camera is likely used but the EXIF data is what you want to look at.

sounds like returned stock. Assuming you didn't buy it refurbished I'd be inclined to return it even if it checks out AF wise etc, just out of principle.

I would check the EXIF with Opanda(free download) and if Opanda says 1700, I'd return it in a hurry.

It has been used and returned. The D800E should have zereo actuations when new.

What color is the box? If the box is gray and says "reconditioned product", it's a refurbished camera. If it's Nikon yellow, it's a new or used camera. New, the D800E goes for about $3100. Used and refurbished would cost less.

Don't look at the image numbering. Check it with something like myshuttercount.com or camerashuttercount.com - or with an EXIF reader.

Well, I don't want to insult you, but if you put in a CF card that had photos on it and snapped a picture, your shutter count/file number will often reflect whatever was on your card. You can format the card, then do a reset on the shutter count in the camera and then see if it still shows you a high number.

As others have said, you should also be able to see the total number of actuations in the EXIF.

I might agree with the above two responses, probably the card numbering. However, I think that would only apply if it was reading pre-existing data from within the D800E playback folder, or it (playback folder) was deliberately set from the default "D800E" to "all" under playback menu/playback folder. So you would probably have to already have D800e data on the card.

I'd be thinking maybe it was used as a demo at the store, without a card in it which also will increase the real shutter count (tested this on mine).

Take a jpeg, download it. And look at the exif as others have said. compare with the shutter count:
Download Opanda Free...

From My D800e:
Total Number of Shutter Releases for Camera = 15627
(Nine positions from the bottom using opanda)

Image Number:
_DSC1347.jpeg
(Note the camera resets at 10,000 clicks also)

It's extremely rare for these two numbers to stay the same, almost impossible.
D5 will also reset the image numbering. It can be set to reset each formatting, or left on (to accumulate).

Regardless, every new camera I've bought starts with the numbers matching, so something is weird. But I also format my card in camera before taking that first shot. Don't know if you did that.

On a Mac you can check this with "preview", click on the Information Icon and look at the Exif.

Interesting. So the exif shows 36 for an DSC_1729.nef image.

Just so I'm clear... there is no way to reset the exif shutter count and not reset the in cam number sequencing?

This all just seems odd to me because I did indeed format (always do for each use) my card before using it the first time. 36 I can live with. 1700... not so much.

Thanks for the help guys.

When you insert a card into the camera it picks up the last sequence number, so that even if you format the card (inside the camera) it'll continue on from that last number.

There is a way.
Format your card.
Take one picture.
Rename that picture to 37. You need a card reader and computer for this
Take an other picture and you'll see it will have nbr 37.

Well, that resets the picture sequence. You can't reset the exif number, which is what he was asking I think. It's the odometer...

I didn't realize you could get the exif off a raw file.

I read it as he asked for both
AFAIK the Exif nummer only will be resetted with a shutter replacement.
