I bought a K100D from Buydig, and I had the camera set to use serial numbers for the photo name. However, my first shot had an ID like 100-1470. Does this mean my camera wasn't brand new?

Looks that way.

The counter should start at zero.

What SD card did you use?
If it was a brand new card and the camera started at 1470 then it does look like the camera has been used.

If its an old SD that you've used before and there were images on it, then the camera would have started from whatever number the last image was.

I had a little Pentax P&S which was upto about 4000 images when I got my DL.
Whenever I used the SD from the P&S then the DL's images would jump upto 4001 etc.
I would then have to reset the camera count, transfer an old image (eg No 1300) to a blank SD, put it in and take a few shots. The camera would then jump upto image No 1301.

Thanks nadnerb. I did use a card with pictures in it. I put in an image with a lower count, and it fixed it. Guess I can stop worrying if Buydig screwed me.
