Title: Exposure count indicator

Abstract: An exposure count indicator includes a flexible split ring having a series of exposure count indicia provided along the split ring, and a mask that covers the split ring to prevent the exposure count indicia from being seen. When the split ring is rotated relative to the mask, the split ring is advanced through a ring egress opening in the mask to progressively relocate the split ring from being beneath one side of the mask to being above another side of the mask to allow the exposure count indicia to be progressively seen. Thus, the split ring becomes increasingly present at one side of the mask and decreasingly present at the other side of the mask as the exposure count indicia can be increasingly seen.
