Know the number Shutter Count it is important for those who have a digital camera because by knowing how much Shutter Count  from your camera then you will also know the age of your camera.

The shutter count is the number of pictures that a camera has already taken. Also known as actuations. The number is important with used cameras because the shutter blades are delicate mechanical parts, subject to wear & tear. [1]

Shutter Count if a camera is approaching the threshold is usually characterized by discomfort when the camera will be used. Among them is often jammed shutter. Basically, your camera writes all exposure-related information such as date, time, shutter speed, aperture, ISO and a bunch of other important information into the header of each file. Some camera manufacturers like Nikon and Canon also add unique shutter actuations data fields that are used for seeing the total number of exposures or “shutter actuations” cameras have. [1]
