Custom numbering of files within camera on 5D3?
Aug 7, 2012

I recently swapped cards on my 5D3 and the file numbering has go awry…

I have the custom naming set up to name the files 5D3_XXXX so as to distinguish from other bodies, but the numbering went from 5D3_1700.CR2 jumping suddenly to 5D3_6000 without an obvious reason other than swapping cards… The camera has only shot 1700 odd frames, so its not anything to do with it actually having shot that many frames suddenly…

Is there any easy way to get the numbering back on track? I'd much rather not have to manually rename files each time I import.

Any suggestions greatfully received.
