Resetting the File Number

The images you shoot are automatically assigned file numbers. You can select how the file number is assigned.

1. Turn on the camera, and press the <MENU> button

2. Use the button to select the (Set up) tab.

3. Use the button to select [File Numbering].

4. Select either [Continuous] or [Auto Reset].

Continuous A number one higher than the last one recorded is assigned to the next image. This is convenient for managing all your images together on a computer because you avoid file name duplication when changing folders or memory cards.*
Auto Reset The image and folder number are reset to the starting value (100-0001).* This is convenient for managing images on a folder-by-folder basis.

* When a blank memory card is used. If a memory card with recorded data is used, the 7-digit number for the last recorded folder and image is compared with the last one on the card, and the larger of the two is utilized as the basis for new images.

File and Folder Numbers

Recorded images are assigned consecutive file numbers starting with 0001 and ranging up to 9999, while folders are assigned numbers starting with 100 and ranging up to 999. Up to 2,000 images can be saved into a single folder.

  • Images may be saved to a new folder when there is insufficient free space even if the total number of images in a folder is less than 2,000 because the following types of image are always saved together into the same folder.
    • Images from continuous shooting
    • Self-timer images (custom)
    • Stitch Assist mode images
    • My Colors images ([Save Original] set to [On])
  • Images cannot be played back when the folder numbers are duplicated or image numbers are duplicated within folders.
