Description

How are file numbers assigned to folders and images on memory cards? Can the method for assigning numbers to folders and images be changed?

Solution

Your shots are automatically numbered in sequential order (0001 9999) and saved in folders that store up to 2,000 images each. Folder numbers can also be created separately based on the shooting date.
IMPORTANT
  • The position and shape of the operation buttons, screens displayed, and setting items may differ according to the model you use.
  • Folder numbers are assigned based on the date set in the camera. Confirm beforehand that the date and time are correct.

Changing how the camera assigns file numbers

In the camera's default settings, shots are numbered sequentially in the order they were taken. You can change how the camera assigns file numbers.
The procedure for changing the file numbering method is explained below.

1. Press the <Power> button to turn the camera on.

2. Press the <MENU> button.

3. Press the [ ], [ ] buttons to choose [File Numbering] on the [Set Up] () tab, and then press the [ ], [ ] buttons to choose [Continuous] or [Auto Reset].


The details of the individual setting options are shown below.
ContinuousImages are numbered consecutively (until the 9999th shot is taken/saved) even if you switch memory cards.
Auto ResetImage numbering is reset to 0001 if you switch memory cards, or when a new folder is created.

4. After selecting the desired option, press the <MENU> button.
NOTE
  • Regardless of the option selected in this setting, shots may be numbered consecutively after the last number of existing images on newly inserted memory cards. To start saving shots from 0001, use an empty (or formatted) memory card.

Date-based image storage

Instead of saving images in folders created each month, you can have the camera create folders each day you shoot to store shots taken that day.

1. Press the power button to turn the camera on.

2. Press the <MENU> button.

3. Press the [ ], [ ] buttons to choose [Create Folder] on the [Set Up] () tab, and then press the [ ], [ ] buttons to choose [Daily] or [Monthly].


4. When finished, press the <MENU> button.
