    Depends on how Olympus registers a shutter release. If it is anything like Fuji, it is any time the shutter moves, so just turning the camera on, moving the shutter out of the way of the sensor, first curtain shutter movements all count. My guess is that it is most likely not as accurate as you might think. Probably remove 2/3 of that number to get an actual shutter release count.

    More clarification from Olympus on the matter would be needed.

    I do know that one person on the Pentax forums board recorded 120,000 shutter trips in a K-5 in a relatively short period of time because the camera was used for time lapse photography in capturing some aspect of home construction so it's not impossible.
  4. The code is really old news. And I can confirm that the count is accurate, I used it on my E-M5 all the time, and used it to check out the count on my E-M1 that I bought used.

    I glad to see that EM5's shutter working great, and I still have one with me only has 10k shutter count.
  6. At high counts they start to have issues at high shutter speeds... mine had issues doing 1/4000s reliably and accurately.
