FILE NAMES & PRINTING
ABOUT FILE AND FOLDER NUMBERS
Images or video clips are assigned file numbers from 0001 to 9999, and folders are assigned folder numbers
from 100 to 999
Folder File Capacity
Each folder usually contains up to 9999 images. If a photo is taken
when the file number has reached 9999, the camera will create a new
folder. For example, if the current folder is “100_5040”, the new folder
will be named “101_5040.”
If the total folder number reached 999 and the total file number
exceeds 9999, the camera will display the warning message “FILE
NUMBER OVER.” In this case, please set the File Number Reset to
ON mode and then format the memory or insert a new memory card.
