U
d6: File Number Sequence
When a photograph is taken, the camera names the file by adding 
one to the last file number used. This option controls whether file 
numbering continues from the last number used when a new 
folder is created, the memory card is formatted, or a new memory 
card is inserted in the camera.

File Number Sequence
If the current folder is numbered 999 and contains either 999 
photographs or a photograph numbered 9999, the shutter-release button 
will be disabled and no further photographs can be taken. Choose [Reset] 
for Custom Setting d6 ([File number sequence]) and then either format 
the current memory card or insert a new memory card.
Option
Description
On 
(default)
When a new folder is created, the memory card 
formatted, or a new memory card inserted in the 
camera, file numbering continues from the last number 
used or from the largest file number in the current 
folder, whichever is higher. If a photograph is taken 
when the current folder contains a photograph 
numbered 9999, a new folder will be created 
automatically and file numbering will begin again from 
0001.
Off
File numbering is reset to 0001 when a new folder is 
created, the memory card is formatted, or a new 
memory card is inserted in the camera. Note that a 
new folder is created automatically if a photograph is 
taken when the current folder contains 999 
photographs.
J
Reset
Same as for [On], except that the next photograph 
taken is assigned a file number by adding one to the 
largest file number in the current folder. If the folder is 
empty, file numbering is reset to 0001.
