Re: Photo File Numbers

***Edit - this is not quite correct, sorry. Please see Invicta's post below this one***

Unless you change it, I think the file names are xmddnnnn where:

x is P for JPEG files and _ (underscore) for raw files
mdd - the date as month - day - day (Oct to Dec as A to C for the month)
nnnn - four-digit sequence number

There are options to change some things in the menu. For example, I think by default the number will reset to zero when you reformat the card. There is an option somewhere to tell it to carry on sequentially. Changing the first letter is not quite straightforward, I think it has some strange dependency on which colour space you use, but it should all be there in the book if you are interested.
