  1. I was surprised to see this shot even included a feral cat that wanders the area.

  3. You're welcome. Glad it worked for you.
  4. "Uh...when I said 'smile for the camera' I meant the horizontal kind!"
  5. When I import images to my computer, I also use a preset to change all of the names at the same time to include the date. For example, my default naming system is something like MLR_220120_0001. The first 3 are my initials, the next 6 are the date (YYMMDD), and the last group is the image number set (in camera) to increment with each shutter release. That way there will never be files with the same name and files will always sort in order of image number and date. I can also do a filename search based on the last four and see by the file name when it was taken. Or, do a filename search by the date. If you use more than one camera, you can avoid duplicate filenames by adding the camera model number (ex.: D5600, 5D, etc.) in the file name as well. In that case, this is how I name the file: MLR_D500_220120_0001. Another 2¢ from my piggy bank. ?
  6. Initially, I had a similar idea but then ran into the situation when the camera reached 9999 during a shoot, since by that time I wasn't keeping a sharp eye on the numbering. If I didn't stop shooting at just the right time, in order to go through the menus to change the file name, then I would have to change each individual filename in camera. And that takes too much time. Instead, I decided to add a number prefix to the filename as I import the images to my computer. This way I can even change the numbering in the middle of a group and it works quite well for me. Just thought to add my 2¢ on the subject.
  7. "I said stand at attention, you big Boobie!!"
  8. 'File number sequence' is selected from the 'Custom Setting' menu, to be either 'on' or 'off'. If set to 'off', the camera will reset the four-digit number back to the beginning of the sequence. However, if that setting is set to 'on' the camera will remember where the number sequence left off and continue the file numbers from that point, until it reaches the maximum count of 9999.
