when i used to download my files off the camera they were called IMGP........jpg (or PEF)
yesterday the naming changed to _IGP.......jpg
the only think i can think of that i changed was swapping from raw to jpg

anyone any ideas what happened and how do i get back to the original naming ?

Dont worry there's nothing wrong with your camera

it's the color space that changed.
(you can find it under "custom settings")

IMGP refers to sRGB, _IGP refers to adobeRGB

Now someone on here told me every fuji lab uses sRGB for their prints, so unless you're sure you're not gonna print, I'd suggest going back to sRGB.

Roy, you are partly right and partly wrong (at least as far as the DS goes). It really is the change in color space that makes a difference. When you shoot in raw the color space isn't considered because the camera isn't "processing" the data. Therefore, the naming is the same as it is for sRGB. However, if you switch back to jpg when the camera is set for adobeRGB,the name will change. So the name only changes when shooting in jpg AND when the color space is set to adobeRGB. My manual mentions the name change due to the change in color space, but didn't mention that it only applies to jpg images (took me a bit to figure that out also).

i have used raw in the past and i am pretty sure i didnt get a name change
thats why i was puzzled this time
i did change the colour setting though and forgot about it
then also changed to raw and then back to jpg
so that sounds like it

i have a ds too

Well like I said above, all Fuji labs seem to use sRGB. So even if you use adobeRGB, it won't have an effect on your prints.

In my experiences, adobeRGB gave a little more "natural" look, but I can't confirm that.
I don't think there's much difference...
