I got mine the second week of Sept and it probably has at least 20K on it. It's designed to be used so enjoy the photos. Shutters are easy to replace, moments in time aren't.

Bought mine in July. I'm sure I am well over 100K but it's not something I keep track of.

Where on the camera are you seeing a shutter count?

It's somewhere in the menus, I think camera status? Or something like that.

I did a search of the PDF manual and the only mention of shutter count is related to the battery status. Which only gives the count since the last charge - it resets when you charge the battery.

Given that getting the shutter count on recent 1-series has been cloaked in mystery I would be very surprised if Canon provided such a feature.

I certainly welcome the information if you have it. I've been all thru the camera and manual and can not find any such status.

Check page 374 of the manual. It's under Set-up 4 (yellow), then system status display. It'll display the serial number, firmware version, release cycles, and camera status log (if there were any errors, it keeps a record of them).

Well how about that. "Release cycles". No wonder I couldn't find it - I was looking for "shutter". My estimate of 100K was pretty good - it is showing </= 135K.

Thanks again - I would have never found it!

Not a 1Dx yet, but with my first Mark2N, I hit 430,000 clicks in it's first 6 months of life.

(yes, > 70,000 a month... which only comes out to about 100/hour... every hour for 6 straight months )

I was thinking that perhaps I am being too trigger happy but looking over the activity from the past 5 months I see I shot:

1 - Football game
4 - Volleyball games
51 - Field Hockey games
19 - Soccer games

That's not counting the 30-mins of warm-ups that I shoot before each game.

I think I've been too LIGHT on the trigger!

That's a serious love for Field Hockey!

There is really no right no wrong when it comes to how many photos you take. The bottom line is still to get usable images. No one cares how you got them.

It says around 60K since mid-August, which is about 1666 rolls of 36 exposure film. Would I have shot that much back in the film days... no, because the cameras were typically 5-6 fps. Also, a significant portion of those images were shot available light in hockey arenas where (for this specific client), if we were back in the film days, would have been shot on strobe at one frame every second or two rather than ISO 6400 at 10-12 fps...

What I'm finding with the X vs. the 1DIV and III is that my productivity from sports events has increased about 30-40% in quantity. While I haven't analyzed it closely, I would say the keeper rate (technically acceptable images) has also increased, but in the 50% range. And I don't think my technique has improved that much in one season. It's simply the higher fps rate captures a broader selection of images and the better AF performance results in more technically acceptable keepers. I do feel this results in a better selection of final best images as well.

Because he is bored from not taking enough shots.
