They say the best cameraisthe one that gets used the most often.

I've taken over 4,000 shots with my Fuji Finepix S602 over the last two years and I still love it.

I'd like to hear stories from photographers who have taken an incredible number of shots with their favorite digcam.

Anyone have a high mileage digicam out there?

I had taken right around 30K shots with my D70 since last June, though not too much in the last month since I got my D1H. For some reason I'm unable to find how many shots I've taken with my D1H using Opanda.

So far 30K shots holds the record!

Are you generally a professional photographer taking that many shots?

Cool !

I saw some of your shots on another post. Great bird pics and fireworks.

I agree, the lens is pretty important!

Anybody else out there with a high mileage digicam?

might be a dumb question, but how do you know how many pictures you have taken?

More shots than the shutter mechanism in my D100 was designed to handle :lol: I've had it replaced once already, not due to failure however, but as a courtesy service while having the camera checked/adjusted/cleaned after a year's work.

Most of the shots have been while on assignment for one or more publications. I guess one could use that term, not really sure.

My Powershot S100 has taken over 20,000 photos over the past 5 years.
