Leica File Numbers and Dupes.
Jan 15, 2014

I bought a M8 to make use of all my Leica years and gear. And like every Photo-ego I may want a M8 back up. Question, is there some way to control files so as not to have files with same numbers. This can be a problem with two camera and file numbers over lapping on a computer.

It happened with Nikon. The computer asked,
"... Do You Wish to Replace DCS##### ? "
and I did, and it did. One Nikon, #2 caught up to Nikon, #1 and images got lost on the computer. All files were burn to disk before loaded into the computer. But it was a lot of hunting for images I knew I had. I now have two very different Nikon file names, LD1#### and LD2#### Works for me.

Can I do the same with the M8 for file numbers ? I have not found any good info on the file naming and I have been all over the 'Net'
Thanks for your time.

Keep shooting and have fun doing it.
