If you want to see how many photos your camera has taken, take a photo and upload it to Flickr, then look at the EXIF data. The "Image Number" field is the number of shutter actuations of the camera body that took the photo. This is a useful piece of information when reselling a selling used gear, and generally neat to know if you take a lot of photos. I'm adding a graph of actuations vs time to my to-do list for flixplor.com.
