Number of shutter actuations

How many shutter actuations do you get from a camera?


According to the website, the inner workings of a camera are delicate and fragile and made to withstand around 100,000 to 150,000 shutter releases.  Keep in mind that a shutter actuation is an instance in which your camera’s shutter is activated. A shutter actuation represents a basic part of what happens inside your camera’s body when you take a picture. The number of shutter actuations is also called the shutter counter.  Not too many people know that the shutter is a moving part in the camera.  The shutter obviously has a life expectancy that depends on the average of the best and worst cameras.
