I thought that I recalled a lot of people had trouble with the 300D's shutter around 10k to 20k clicks.

Thanks for the info Max.

Now if they would just give us a tool that we can use to find out just how many clicks our cameras have on them........

What I see here is that the high-speed cameras on your list are going to fail rather quickly. 300,000 frames is not a lot when you can shoot bursts of 8 or more per second.

The rating is probably MTBF. Thus look at it as a normal curve with the peak being the 'expected' life.
