P900 -- Max 200 files in SD folder?

The SD card in my P900 has 7 folders on it so far. Every time I take a 201st shot, the camera starts another folder. Does it do this for everybody??? Anybody know how to get the camera to record all photos in the same folder? I found where I can re-initialize the file numbering but nothing about max folder size.

That's correct! But the image number up to 9999 keeps increasing between the folders, thus isn't a big problem to sort them. When I'm coming from vacation, I have even 16 different folders on my 64GB card My approach is to download a folder at a time,sort the images, then another, etc... At the end I have like 400 images for my final album and like 600 more not so good, but kept as remembrance...

All the best,


P.S. I think at P1000 it's the same.
