File Names 
Photographs are stored as image files with names consisting of a three-letter identifier 
(“DSC” for photos, “SSC” for copies created with the small picture option in the retouch 
menu, “ASC” for stop-motion movies, and “CSC” for copies created with other retouch 
options) followed by “_nnnn.xxx,” where nnnn is a four-digit number between 0001 and 
9999 assigned automatically in ascending order by the camera, and xxx is one of the 
following three letter extensions: “NEF” for NEF images, “JPG” for JPEG images, or “AVI” for 
stop-motion movies. The NEF and JPEG files recorded at a setting of NEF (RAW) + JPEG 
basic
 have the same file names but different extensions.
