When buying a used camera how can I verify shutter count in the field?

8 years 5 months ago #260781 by Archie
I'm meeting someone tomorrow at a café where I might purchase their used Nikon D700 from them. How can I verify shutter count on location? I don't want to base this purchase of trusting a stranger that I've never met before. Is there any way to quickly verify shutter count in the field for this purpose?

Thank you in advance for your help.

From my understanding you will need to get access to a site like: www.myshuttercount.com/

to be able to access that. Perhaps the shop has WiFi?
