Default Nikon D40 Shutter count question

Can anyone tell me what does the shutter count on the D40 go up to? Wondering what it is and how to tell if the camera is old or newer.
Thanks.

I did a Google search and looks like it is 50.000

To check the shutter count on your D40 you can use this site:

Very many thanks, if it is 50,000 I have a very long way to go.

The 50,000 number is the expected life, not a guarantee. It could do that and more, or it could fail tomorrow. A low shutter count is reassuring, but it's not an indication of the abuse a camera has received.
