Sorting the images
How the file name of
each image is named
When the camera images
are copied onto the hard
disk, each image is named
as follows:
* When the file name or
recorded date is
displayed underneath
each image in the
image list, the images
are automatically
named (IMAGE001,
IMAGE002...)
according to the order
stored in the camera.
* When the comment is
displayed, the
comment of each image
becomes its file name
and the images are
stored in the
alphanumerical order
of the comments.
Tips for inputting a
comment as a file name
You can input up to 14
numbers and letters in a
comment. To manage the
image files, we suggest
you mix the letters and
numbers.
For example, use letters to
divide the images into
groups and use numbers
to sort them within each
group as follows:
Children001
Children002
Children003...
Sea001
Sea002
Sea003....
Sky001
Sky002
Sky003...
