Why can't I find a way to reset the photo counter on the RS1500 back to ZERO - I do not want a "Running Total" for every pic I've taken!

I download after every day's shoot and store the pix in separate folders - I can understand why the numbers increase - at least, that way one doesn't over-write previous stuff - BUT that is NOT the way I want it to work - and what happens when I try to shoot #9999 Plus 1 ???

Any answers ?

See page 110 of your manual; there is a setting that prevents the numbers from being assigned sequentially.

Camera image naming/numbering is standardized to allow software and devices to understand. That doesn't mean you have to stick to the numbers assigned by your camera. Most decent image management software can automatically rename your images however you like automatically upon import.
