You can get the total shutter actuation on your Nikon DSLR whether you own D70, D80 or D90, or higher end (D300, D300s, D3 etc), this trick should work on all of them. I haven’t tested it on lower end DSLRs like D40, D50, D60, D3000, D5000 etc., but I feel it should work on them as well.

The number of shutter actuations is stored in the exif data of the image file, which you need to check using a good exif viewer like OPANDA IEXIF (it is also available as Firefox add on) which is a free software. Download and install the software which is only available for Windows, linux users can use any other suitable tools like exif (command-line) or exiv2, exifprobe etc. The key is to take a jpeg image using your camera, don’t take RAW and convert it to jpeg. Open the untouched image using exif viewer of your choice and you should see a field like this.
