Re: Canon EOS R5 file numbering system

Put the card in a card reader and edit the number of the last photo that you took to the number it should be (go to shutter count to get what the count actually is) . Put the card back in the camera and take a picture. It should be right. Let me know if it works. It works on Nikon camera.

Re: Canon EOS R5 file numbering system

Thank You.   The camera was new and not that many pics so I reformatted the card and reset the file number.    Appreciate your suggestion.

Re: Canon EOS R5 file numbering system

Your welcome. Just in case it's a good idea to check the shutter on the camera. I always check the first shot just to make sure i did not get a used camera. Take care.

Re: Canon EOS R5 file numbering system

If you want to continuously track the number of images shot you can use the feature with your camera that allows you to create a custom file prefix.

 

Digital image files are an 8.3 pattern with eight characters for the file name and three for the file type.

 

The first four characters are camera specific and the last four are 0000 through 9999, the file count.

 

Once you hit 9999 images the counter rolls over to 0000.

 

With your camera you could create a custom prefix, say 1SD0 1 for camera 1, SD for Sadie and 0 to start.

 

When you roll over from 9999 change the prefix to 1SD1; then you will have 10000 to 10999. Repeat each roll over.

 

If you have more than one camera where you can do this then it would be 2SDX, 3SDX, etc.
