    Default Nikon D800 rollover after 10,000 anyone know?

    Hoping someone might be able to help - as I'm having trouble finding this answer.

    Sometimes nikon has ridiculous conventions....on my d700, after 10,000 exposures, it gets reset to zero. Stupid beyond belief - I know....because you then have filenames with the same name.....it's probably a 2 second software fix...instead of hassling hundreds of thousands of nikon owners. The way to get around it (after I discovered this) was to change a prefix in your own settings that append the number sequence. But that means being aware of every 10,000 shots....

    Does anyone know if the D800 does the same thing - (From where I am, with spotty wifi - I am having trouble researching this.)

    Many thx in advance if someone can help!

    I believe that it's the same.
    Here's what the D800 manual says on page 273 (2011 English version):

    "Photographs are saved using file names consisting of “DSC_” or, in the case of images that use the Adobe RGB color space ([Page] 274), “_DSC”, followed by a four-digit number and a three-letter extension (e.g., “DSC_0001.JPG”). The File naming option is used to select three letters to replace the “DSC” portion of the file name. For information on editing file names, see page 170."

    Marko, I just shot # 10587 .... hope this helps .... oops, that is the shutter count ... no, the D800 only lets you go to 9999 .... you'd have to have a MIGHTY big card in there to shoot more than that in one setting, though, and once you take 'em of the camera, would that not reset automatically?

    so it's the same as the d700... such a simple tweak it would be for them...and would make the lives of photographers worldwide so much easier. this is a stupid BURDEN for no reason.
    sometimes i just don't get a giant company's logic when it comes to software design....photographers need separate filenames or all hell breaks loose.... so every 10,000 frames is a hassle...and this may happen 10-20 times or more during the life of the camera. silly nikon... let the count run to a million not 9999...and then reset. what is this Y2K again? silly nikon.

    If you're shooting with multiple Nikon DSLR's, then it makes sense to rename the files in at least one of the bodies. It's what I did back when I never left the house without the D90 and D300s. When I broke the 90 I shot for a good while with the 300 without worrying about the roll-over. The 90 probably rolled over four or five time before it “rolled- over” and fell to the ground. My folder system on the hard drive is so chaotic and Lightroom only catalogs pieces I've named so it has never been an issue for me.

    On the other hand, beware of another issue I've encountered with my D800. It's a little more serious in nature and one you might want to be prepared for. The moment my finger left the shutter button at 50k, the dam'n thing turned into this.




    I'm not saying that it's a reported issue or that others have had the same problem, but to be on the safe side I think I might bring a roll of 35mm with you when you start to get close to 50k. If it does happen to you, there's a bright side. No more file naming issues.

    so as I predicted....I went into a sick frenzy of shooting, broke the 10,000 mark and now I got rollover....only 185 files to rename though..and now I've changed the prefix so I'm safe till the next round...silly nikon.
