I know Nikon embeds the shutter count in the EXIF of their NEF raw files.

What's the easiest way to find it?

Just open the photo in Preview, press Command-I (+I) to bring up the Inspector. Click the circled i () tab, and then the Exif tab. At the bottom of the list you'll find Image Number.

This is your camera's shutter count.
