That's how digital cameras work. The number displayed is the ESTIMATED number of pictures you can take before filling up the memory card. It is not the number you have taken. Since memory cards come in various sizes and picture file sizes vary depending on the resolution at which they were taken as well as the picture content it ismore important to know how much spaceyou have left than how many pictures you have taken.

If you want to know how many pictures you have taken just look at the information displayed with the picture onthe camera's LCD screen. If for exampleif it says 00001/00012 you are looking a picture 1of 12.

Might I suggest you read your camera's user manual a bit more.
