    I don't know, it might. I've always used them except back when all I had was a D60 or D90. I remember wishing it was a feature on the 90 even before I found out it was available on higher end models.

    Anyway, I've just gone into my Shooting Menu and renamed the files in all four Shooting Banks:

    A. LND=Landscape
    B. ACT=Action
    C. POR=Portrait
    D. FMC= Full manual control(this is the one where I don't care that the change I make while shooting aren't reset to a default that I've established.)

    Looks to me like if one devoted themselves to using the banks for whatever type of work they were doing it would yield the potential (in theory) of 40k releases before anymore file naming was required.

    Nikon's approach is broken. After you have carefully set up the banks in both the Shooting Menu and the Custom Settings Menu to allow the camera to best work with a given situation, any changes you might have to make to better the results in varying conditions will remain in effect even after the camera has been turned off. What I mean to say is, your original setting aren't saved as a default.

    This fellow has a workaround for it, though. You can download his idea of the correct settings as a .bin file and store it on your card so that they are always the same at the beginning of a shoot. Don't think I'll bother with his, but may create my own instead.

    This link takes you to his settings for the D800 using three of the four banks. Notice that he has changed file names in the Shooting Banks.

    Well, if it's any consolation, Canon is pretty much the same. Both my XSi and my T3i roll over at 10,000 back to "0001". :(

    My Pentax is worse unlike my Nikon D7000 my Pentax K10D does not allow me to alter RAW files to say anything but IMGPxxxx at least the Nikon does allow you to change the letters. I am up to 14933 with Pentax with Nikon 7945 so not reached role over yet. I do find the DSC_xxxx handy being different from Pentax so no clash with numbers.

    Still learning Nikon there are far too many features I was considering buying a time delay shutter release I had used SM Tether but it was discharging the battery all the time it is running so very limited how long it could run for. Then find it's built into the camera. The K10D is a much older sensor and getting use to the ISO range is taking some getting use to.

    But picture numbers really role on when one uses bracketed photos, last shoot 163 RAW files but only got 69 Jpegs from that. I look at the scene and realise there is likely a problem with dynamic range and so set camera to +2 standard -2 EV often I only select one after and don't combine to HDR but it gives me the option latter. Yes I have a display and can look for blinkies, but to me viewing pictures taken means missing a picture to take so most of the viewing left until I return home.
