Well, today my Canon 40D took its 10,000th picture! Wahoo! I got it around two years ago if I remember correctly, and today, while taking some nature shots on a lovely Sunday afternoon, I passed this milestone. I wouldn't have even noticed except that the file names started back at _MG_0001.CR@ again! I was confused for a split second before I figured it out.
Maybe now I should sell the camera and say it has only 60 shots on it... hmm..... I guess the file names are not like an odometer though, you can reset them to zero anytime you please... oh well..
