A camera shutter I would suspect is tested after it has been installed in the camera and the testing will include many other components. That allows for any necessary adjustments to be made. The typical number of in factory shutter actuations I don't know.
Sorry don't agree, I feel the shutter would be tested outside the body before it's connected to the counter and then checked a couple of times in the camera, not hundreds. If that were the case then there would be a lot more on the internet about the number of actuations on new cameras. Be good to know what's on the replacement Bill
