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…

Take a newly formatted card and take a single test shot. Place the card in a reader and edit with the PC. Renumber that image filename to the number you want (5D3_1700?). Set camera to auto reset numbering mode and put the card in the camera then take one shot. It will be numbered one greater than the number you had on the card. Change back to continuous numbering mode.
