Creating folders

You can manually create and manage folders on your Mark III using, from the first screen of the setup category here, the Record function and card/folder select command. I come in here -- you've seen this before -- this is where I chose the card I wanted to record on, but I can also create and manage folders. If I come down here and select Folder, I see that I'm currently shooting into the folder 100EOS5D, which has 16 images in it. I get the thumbnails of the starting -- of the first and last images in that folder.

I can, if I want, come down here and create a new folder. It tells me it's going to create a folder called 101. I can say OK, and now I've got two different folders, and I can select which one I want to start shooting into. So I'm going to select the second one, and now any images that I take will go into that folder. So if I'm trying to stay organized during a shoot, if I'm shooting a couple of different subjects, and I want to be very clear on where that dividing line is between the two different subject matters, I can create separate folders, and shoot into those and add some automatic organization going on, even before I get back to my computer.
