Default Canon A75/A80 Picture naming

I am looking to upgrade an older HP camera and have narrowed down my search to the Canon A75 or A80, I can't decide which. I have seen the other threads and there are definite pros and cons to each, but I'm currently leaning towards the A75 I think.

One thing that annoys me with my HP camera is the way it names the pictures. They all start at "1" (DSC0001) on a new disk. So when I'm on vacation and shooting a lot of photos on multiple disks I have 2 - "1's", etc. This makes it a little more tedious to organize.

Can anyone tell me how Canon names their photos?

Thanks for any help!

Tom

Hi,
Canon A80 start with IMG_0001 ...., and when you delete pictures he remember where it stop so the next picture start with name like IMG_0125, .... You have option to set names of picture so thay reset every time when you deleted him or you can continue with last number. I use the last one and did not try with reset but I think it is what I said. You have more option on giving the names in menu but I did not try.

If you have trouble sorting out the filenames of the photos in your harddisk, I recommend you a free software "Exifer". It can do batch rename of photos according the Exif data (i.e. original photos' date & time). You can also customize the filenames in other way.

Use any search engine to search for "Exifer" and you will find a download site.

I have an A80 and have always been curious about this. What happens when the picture naming sequence reaches IMG_9999?
