…that is 20,000 actuations of my shutter. At least that is what it is going by the numbering of my pictures. I am not sure whether pictures which are taken and immediately deleted on the camera are counted in the numbering or not. I am guessing not. At any rate, the old, or not so old, xti has rolled over 9999 twice as of yesterday. Calculating from May 23, 2007 that averages to….wait for it…43 pictures taken a day, which, when broken down like that, does not seem all that impressive after all. Still.
