People,

What's the usual lifetime of D200, D80, and other cameras? I mean the number
of shots, just approximately, X0'000, X00'000, greater? Did anybody hear
anything about that?

Just D.

I don't own the models you mention. I can only say that I have gotten
thousands of pictures on my HP digitals and they have also been
dropped many times. I use them every day. As with any piece of
electronics, they can suffer a hard failure at any time so you always
need backup.

Actually I didn't mean if I drop the camera down or something like that. I
mean a usual physical wear of the shutter. I heard something about 100'000
shots, maybe slightly greater, but this info is not the latest and about the
previous generation of the cameras. And I have no idea how long the PRO and
SEMIPRO DSLR models are able to work before we need to maintain or even
replace the shutter. Just my curiosity. For example I made over 4500 shots
since the middle of December 2006 and I'm wondering if I keep going at the
same speed for how long time the camera will still be able to work great as
usual.

Hello, Just D:

Here's some information I just found, on the Web, about DSLR shutter
lifetimes:

Nikon D200 - 100,000 actuations

Nikon D80 - 50,000 actuations

The above data, alone, seems to indicate that the D200 is considerably
more robust than the D80.


Cordially,
John Turco

John,

Thanks for this info, it's interesting. So it looks like I should be more
careful, accurate, and don't shoot too many times. Say, if one short trip
takes approximately from 500 to 1000 shots then I can destroy the shutter in
50-100 trips. Not so good. I expected more at least in times.

Just D.
