I'd had it just over a year, every day of which I took between 0 (shame, shame) and 4-500 pictures. Probably 30 a day on average, so I guessed 10-15k. But, suddenly I *had* to know the actual figure, and no matter how much I looked, I couldn't find it anywhere in-camera.
Opanda Iexif 2.3 to the rescue! 18,504 shutter releases. (Just open any image from the camera with IExif, and scroll around to find all sorts of cool embedded info.)
Poking around a bit more, I noticed that my Lightroom catalog had grown by only about 6-7k images in that same year.
What did I learn?
- I shot approximately 50% more than I thought I did in the past year.
- I throw out about two images for every one I keep.
Oh, and an image from yesterday's stock shoot:
There's three things I can think of trying:
- more power
- shoot at 1/500, 1/250, and 1/125 with the same strobe settings, and compare exposures
- use a sync cable
