This is bizarre...

I just took some photos and downloaded them and discovered the names didn't start with IMGP but insted _IGP...... the sequence number was correct, tho....

Any thoughts? I checked the SD card and that is how they are on the card itself....

I just tried tow things and neither worked....

1. changing the file name on the SD card from _IGP to IMGP;

2. formatting the card.

formatting the card removed the data but the filemame and sequence number remained the same......

You've just accidentally switched from sRGB to Adobe RGB. Go back to sRGB and you'll get the usual file names again. It's just a way the camera uses so you can keep track of how a particular image was shot.

Hey, Ron! Great call! Mystery solved!

That's exactly what I did last week. It wasn't an accident, tho'.

Many thanks.

rich, this happened to me also very early on. i thought it was bizarre also. but i did sit down and think of any change i'd made. at first i it was color space aRGP or SRGB but my cam still uses IMGP for jpg and raw. when my file name changes it's when i'm shooting in aRGB and i'll get IGP when shooting jpg or IMGP when shooting in raw.. the name does not change on my cam when shootong in sRGB.
