According to some sources about retrieving shutter actuation count on a 1-series Canon camera, my up to date odometer reads 472,022 actuations since October of 2005. That equals 157,340 per year, 13,111 per month, 3,277 per week, 468 per day. For those of you who struggle with your learning speed, maybe you just aren’t shooting enough, consistently. I don’t mean shooting 5 burst frames in a row every time just because your camera can do it, but spending every bit of your free time shooting something. Does that sound like too much of a commitment? If so, now you know the reason why you aren’t as good as you want to be.
