Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video File numbering options, part of Canon Rebel T3i (600D and Kiss X5) Essential Training.
When you take a picture your camera has to give it a name of some kind…before you can save it and as you've probably already discovered the name is mostly numbers.…In fact, they're sequential numbers.…Every time you take a picture, the camera increments its image number.…Now by default these numbers keep going up until you hit 9999 at which point…they roll over to one and start over.…The images are stored on your media card inside a folder which is inside…another folder called DCIM.…Each folder can hold up to 9999 images.…
If a folder fills the camera automatically creates a new one that has a…sequential number of its own.…You can change the numbering scheme though so that it resets each time you put a…new card into your camera or create a new folder.…When it's set this way every time you put in a new card you'll get a…new numbering scheme.…You'll also get a new numbering scheme every time you take out your old card,…empty it out, reformat it, and then reinsert it.…If you want you can also reset the numbering scheme manually.…
