New pictures are stored in image files named using a four-digit file number assigned by adding one to the last file number used. The file number is displayed during playback as shown. [FRAME NO.] controls whether file numbering is reset to 0001 when a new memory card is inserted or the current memory card is formatted.
|Directory number||File number|
|[CONTINUOUS]||Numbering continues from the last file number used or the first available file number, whichever is higher. Choose this option to reduce the number of pictures with duplicate file names.|
|[RENEW]||Numbering is reset to 0001 after formatting or when a new memory card is inserted.|
If the frame number reaches 999-9999, the shutter release will be disabled. Format the memory card after transferring to a computer any pictures you wish to keep.
Selecting [USER SETTING] > [RESET] sets [FRAME NO.] to [CONTINUOUS] but does not reset the file number.
Frame numbers for pictures taken with other cameras may differ.
[SAVE ORG IMAGE]
Choose [ON] to save unprocessed copies of pictures taken using [RED EYE REMOVAL].
[EDIT FILE NAME]
Change the file name prefix. sRGB images use a four-letter prefix (default “DSCF”), Adobe RGB images a three-letter prefix (“DSF”) preceded by an underscore.
|Option||Default prefix||Sample file name|
File name prefixes can be edited using touch controls.
