It had been a problem to check “Shutter count” on Panasonic cameras.
EXIF does not say about it and even manufucture says there is no way to check it.
But.. not anymore!
I am showing how to do it.
1. Insert SD card and battery to make it ready to take photos.
2. Set shutter speed dial to “8”.
3. Press and hold “AFL AEL” button while turn main switch ON.
4. Press and hold “Menu Set” button and “Left arrow”, then press FUNC.2 button.
5. Do 4 again.
PWRCNT: How many times the camera has been turned ON.
SHTCNT: This is Shutter count
STBCNT: This is for flash.
I had been looking for this for many years and finally found it.
Funny thing is… this kind of things never come out from Japanese route.
