File Naming
Photographs are saved using file names consisting of “DSC_” or, in 
the case of images that use the Adobe RGB color space, “_DSC”, 
followed by a four-digit number and a three-letter extension (e.g., 
“DSC_0001.JPG”). The [File naming] option is used to select three 
letters to replace the “DSC” portion of the file name. For 
information on editing file names, see steps 2 and 3 of “Renaming 
Shooting Menu Banks” (pg. 256). Note that the portion of the 
name that can be edited is a maximum of three characters long.
