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. Format the memory card after transferring to a computer any pictures you wish to keep.

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.

Stamp the time and/or date of recording on photographs as they are taken.

Option Description
RS[DATE & TIME] Stamp new photographs with the date and time of recording.
R[DATE] Stamp new photographs with the date of recording.
[OFF] Do not stamp the time and date on new photographs.

Time and date stamps cannot be deleted. Turn [DATE STAMP] off to prevent time and date stamps appearing on new photographs.

If the camera clock is not set, you will be prompted to set the clock to the current date and time (aBasic Setup, aChanging the Time and Date).

We recommend that you turn the DPOF “print date” option off when printing images with a time and date stamp (a[PRINT ORDER (DPOF)]).

Time and date stamps do not appear on movies or RAW images.
