Folder and file numbering 1DX MK II

Hi all,

I have received a Canon 1DX Mk ii.

On the lower screen, it says folder 100 and file 7220.

Can someone briefly explain how this works to me please?

Kind regards

It means your next image will be in folder 100 and be numbered 7221.

If the first owner hasn't changed the default setting, you camera has taken 7220 pictures - it is brand new man!!

+1 to John Hoffman for linking the manual!

I would like to add to start at the bottom of page 200 (the blue box) and read on from there to at least page 207 (if not a little further). It's all about how your camera names the files and how to make custom file names and add folders.
