There is, as people have been looking for, a way to count the total number of exposures on your E-1. May work on other bodies, but I don't have those to try].
A. Firmware readout on E-1 [may be the same on all
E Series bodies]:

1. Turn the E-1 on
2. Open the storage media door
3. Press down the Playback Mode button and OK
button at the same time

You will then get the firmware info displayed
on the LCD monitor.

B. More "internal info" [ALL E series bodies?]:

There's a neat little trick to know some statistics
about your E-body:

1: open the CF card door
2: press "play" and "ok" at the same time
3: press the arrows in this order: up; down; left; right
4: fully depress shutter once
5: press up arrow, and now there is magic on the screen

pressing the arrows, you can go through some pages

a: firmware details of attached goodies
b: R= shutter release count (with my camera it was
obviously reset during service), S= flashes
fired, M= pixel mapping (mapped pixels?), U= SSWF ?

Code error e100-0001 canon 4410

e100's on canon designate laser failure. there is a mechanical laser shutter that is opened when the front doors are closed. if you look at the door actuators on the inside tops of the door you will see they intersect with the actuators on the machine, make sure everything looks good in that area and the doors close properly. if the laser shutter is not actuated open the bd mirror will not receive the laser light resulting in an error state.

The laser shutter actuators are located behind the toner hopper.

Nikon claims there is no way to reliably determine the number of shutter actuations. However, there is some data buried in the EXIF info. One way to see this number is with a program called PreviewExtractor, available for Windows from

Which Canons have the facility to connect to an external wire circuit for shutter actuation? Many Thanks Brian Wilkins

I believe that all of Canon's digital SLRs, including the digital Rebels, have this feature. I don't think any of the compact digital (PowerShot) models have the port for a wired switch, but some have a remote infrared (wireless) shutter actuation capability. Most of the digital SLRs have the wireless option also (with the exception of a couple of the Rebel series).

Finally, quite a few of both the digital SLRs and the compact digital cameras can be remotely actuated while connected to a computer, using the software that comes with the cameras.
