Hit 10,000 shots

 Just reached the 10K mark yesterday with my 10D. It's almost exactly a year since I got it. From what others are experiencing, my shutter should go bust in about 3-4 years at the current rate. When I first bought the 10D, I thought it would last at least 10-20 years - my film SLRs and rangefinders certainly did.

Should I be worried? Is there anything I can do to reduce the wear on the shutter (apart from taking less photos!)?

10k, whoa!
I don't really worry about my camera's life span, it should last me 3 years at least under warranty, after that I expenct at least 5 years from it, but I think by then I would've upgrader (after 10 years) by that time, cameras would be implanted in our eyes so we could take shots by thought.Ahhh the future lol.

I'm now at about 18K shots. The shutter doesn't sound so crisp anymore. But it's not affected the image quality. At the current rate, I suspect I'll get a new camera before this one breaks (hmm... 5D looks nice).

I have had my 30D now for about 6 months and I am at 13,000 shots. But I am not too worried about that. The rating of you shutter (100,000) is like the rating for your cars engine (100,000km). It means that it is guarenteed to reach 100,000, but will likely last a bit longer (my etsimate will be around 150,000).

That should take a couple of years to achieve no?

in three to four years your camera will probably be outdated and you might want a new one. So I dont think you have a problem at all
