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.

Option Description
[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. Turn the camera off and insert a formatted memory card before resuming shooting.

Selecting D[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.
