No easy way to get accurate shutter count on many Canon bodies.  My 1DX is a few months old and has ~100K actuations.  Shooting sports, I can put 30K on it in a weekend.  No big deal. Shutters were meant to be replaced.  ;D


Holy $.... 100K... In a couple months....That's hard to comprehend....

20k on a single job?? Did you have ten batteries then? Wow! I can't really see why it would be wrong, it seems dead on to me.

When I shoot dog sports there are about 400+ dog runs per day for 3 days.  I shoot about 25 images per run which is about 30K for that weekend.   :P

I do fashion and glamour photography.
I do at least 45 girls a month.
Averaging 400-500 Photos per girl...
That's 270,000 per year.
The 1D X has a life of 400K.
So I should be replacing the shutter in about 2 years.
My old 1D IV had 270,000 on it after 2 years of use. I had Canon replace the shutter for only $250 at a CPS Gold discounted price. 
Not bad for basically getting a brand new camera.
Don't be afraid to shoot.   :D
