Re: Photo File Numbers

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.

And since this is in the E-M1 II forum then the settings are in Menu H1. The first three menu items are:-
Card Slot Settings - Determines order of saving etc (I have mine Slot 1 Stills & Slot 2 video with Auto overflow)
File Name - set to Auto for continuing numbering (resets to zero if not on Auto)
Edit Filename - as it is titled (I use different first characters for my different Olympus cameras to separate files from each camera)

I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).
