The four-digit file number is like the frame 
number on a roll of film. The captured images 
are assigned a sequential file number from 
0001 to 9999 and saved in one folder. You can 
change how the file number is assigned.
1
Select [File numbering].
 
Under the [51] tab, select [File 
numbering
], then press <
0>.
2
Select the file numbering method.
 
Turn the <5> dial to select the 
desired setting, then press <
0>.
Continues the file numbering sequence even after the card is 
replaced or a new folder is created.
Even after you replace the card, create a folder, or switch the target 
card (such as 
f → g), the file numbering continues in sequence up to 
9999 for the images saved. This is convenient when you want to save 
images numbered anywhere between 0001 to 9999 in multiple cards or 
folders into one folder in your personal computer.
If the replacement card or existing folder already contains images 
recorded previously, the file numbering of the new images may continue 
from the file numbering of the existing images in the card or folder. If 
you want to use continuous file numbering, you should use a newly-
formatted card each time.
