Could be useful (not only for SX50)

I had the surprise that after reaching the image #9999, my camera restarted with IMG_0001. That's rather disturbing when keeping the images in different folders, as the names could be the same and, more important, the ordering in time is being ruined.

So I chose a very simple solution, i.e. a batch file to do the renaming of the images. As I always download the images from the memory card on the same directory named Download before sorting and PP-ing, my batch file looks like this:

cd /d d:\sx50\download

ren IMG* JMG*


Thus, all images starting with "J" come AFTER those starting with "I" (and after other 9999, I can go to "K", etc...    )

Finally, an "renamed" orchid from today:

Thank you for your attention,
