Rebel T5....picture review?

I take 1000-1500 pictures at a time and when reviewing pictures, I have to scroll forever to get to the first picture I took to begin reviewing in order. Is there a way to go to the first picture in a series or review by date? Thanks in advance!

If you're taking that many pictures, you should be doing your scrolling on a computer, not on the camera.

I usually do, but i like to review to delete the bad shots before uploading.

Which you could do quite easily, and a good deal more quickly, with a card reader.

Holy cow, yes. Reviewing and deleting an image in camera is a tedious, multi-button, one-at-a-time ordeal. Just use a card reader to upload the whole card full of images to the computer, then using something like Lightroom, you can speedily fly through all those images and simply press the "X" key to mark the duds for deletion.  Then at the end you hit "delete" only one time and erase the 100's of bad ones you tagged with the "X".  

 

Not it to mention you would have a hard time seeing if you really have critical focus on eyelashes, etc, if you are teying to do that by peering at the teeny tiny 3-inch LCD.  You'd certainly have to take another pass at it using the big screen so why not just do it all one time?

Why do so many people say "FER-tographer"? Do they take "fertographs"?

Some people have limited storage space to upload pictures.  One of my sons uses a MAC, and he's always fixated on space.  He will sometimes take fewer pictures just so that he won't have so many to upload t his MAC.

OK, but with a card reader you can review and delete pictures right on the card. Any decent photo editor will let you do that. I'm not sure it's a smart idea (I like to keep the card intact for a while, in case I change my mind about a reject), but it is allowed. In any case, reviewing 1000+ pictures on the camera is just nuts.

That sounds like tail wagging the dog. An external HD is inexpensive.

He has an external HD. In fact, he has more than one.  Music files take priority over photo files.

I'm not advocating in-camera editing.  I'm just pointing out the reasons why people do things that may not seem to make sense to some of us.  They ususally have a good reason for doing so.
