Choose a file numbering option.

Option

Description

[On]

When a new folder is created or a new memory card is inserted in the camera, file numbering will continue from the last number used. This simplifies file management by minimizing the occurrence of duplicate file names when multiple cards are used.

[Off]

When a new folder is created or a new memory card is inserted, file numbering restarts from 0001. If the current folder already contains pictures, file numbering will instead continue from the highest file number in the current folder.

If you select [Off] after selecting [On], the camera will store the current file number. File numbering will resume from the previously-stored value the next time [On] is selected.

[Reset]

Reset the file numbering for [On]. If the current folder is empty, file numbering will restart from 0001 with the next picture taken. If the current folder contains pictures, the next picture taken will be assigned a file number by adding one to the highest file number in the current folder.

File Number Sequence
  • If a picture is taken when the current folder contains a picture numbered 9999, a new folder will be created and file numbering will restart from 0001.

  • When the current folder number reaches 999, the camera will no longer be able to create new folders and the shutter release will be disabled if:

    • the current folder contains 5000 pictures (in addition, video recording will be disabled if the camera calculates that the number of files needed to record a video of the maximum length would result in the folder containing over 5000 files), or

    • the current folder contains a picture numbered 9999 (in addition, video recording will be disabled if the camera calculates that the number of files needed to record a video of the maximum length would result in a file numbered over 9999).

    To resume shooting, choose [Reset] for Custom Setting d7 [File number sequence] and then either format the current memory card or insert a new memory card.

Folder Numbering
  • If a picture is taken when the current folder contains 5000 pictures or a picture numbered 9999, a new folder will be created and selected as the current folder.

  • The new folder is assigned a number one higher than current folder number. If a folder with that number already exists, the new folder will be assigned the lowest available folder number.
