If you want to find out how often a camera is used to photograph, then what you can do is check the shutter count number of that camera. This is very useful when you want to buy a used camera.
Shutter Count (SC for short) is the total amount of times the camera’s shutter has been released to record a photograph. Why is SC so important? Because a shutter unit is the barrier between sensor and the mirror that’s used to reflect the image seen through the lens. The reflected image is then recorded in the sensor (CCD/CMOS) located behind the camera. For the mirror to rotate and then the image to be recorded, the shutter has to open and then close each time.

The Canon 5D Mark III will go head to head with the recently-launched Nikon D800 in the market. At a quick glance, the 5D Mark III is a formidable opponent for the Nikon D800. This year, Canon emphasizes on speed and photo quality instead of the photo resolution. Nikon decides on emphasizing its photo size and sharpness.
Three to four years ago, Nikon launched Nikon D700 a product that focused on the speed and quality of photograph for low-light environments.
