change file naming prefix: is it possible at all?

hello All,

I would like to set my own in-camera file naming policy.

Is it possible at all?!

Example, instead of:

IMGP0001.PEF

I would like:

K200d0001.PEF or K2000001.PEF

thanks,
-Gian

You'll have to do it during import with that camera. Lightroom will, IIRC, rename files during import if you ask it too, otherwise there are several renamer utilities available.
The K20 & K7 allow for filename customization, so if you want it done in camera, it's time for an upgrade.

If it's for organization reasons you can sort it by metadata. the camera model is reflected in the EXIF

Hi Gian,

Advanced Renamer v2.57 is freeware and a great program.
