M8 shutter life expectancy?

Recommended Posts

Hello to all,

 

 

I never checked the shutter count when I bought my M8 a couple of years ago, so I just went to www.soens.de. to check it out. It says the camera has made only 4815 clicks, I wonder if the shutter is rated to maybe 100,000 or 150,000 clicks? I guess it should need to go out more often!

Happy weekend,

Ricardo

Ricardo, that's very light use. I agree, it needs more regular outings to keep it from aging prematurely. Surely you can manage that.

David, yes it seems it is a very low mileage, I was trying to find another software to check my X1 shutter count but cannot find anything yet. Regards, R

How to read the number of attenuations directly on the LCD screen on your M8 or M8.2:

Switch your M8 or M8.2 on
Press the right arrow key 4 times
Press the left arrow key 3 times
Press the right arrow key 1 once
Press the info button once
Scroll down to body debug data
Press Set key once
Scroll down to NUMEXPOSURES
Turn the camera off

Satijntje, thanks for the recipe.

 

Ko.Fe. Seems the 2 methods are fine, both show the same 4815 shutter count.
