A basic question

How do I determine the number of shutter actuations on my particular M8 camera? I cannot find anything in the menu that points to this. Thanks!

Many thanks, Jeff and Nigel. I went to Jeff's link, and followed the instructions and bingo...actuation count right there! 22,607, less than I thought.

Thanks Nigel, hard to believe I'm at 5665 actuations only on my used M8. But I'm a believer...

It would be interesting if someone could try both methods and see if the software is consistent with the in-camera method.

I tried it, in-camera tells me 5674 actuations. So the program is correct. Very nice news too...
