    Question for Jack Flesher

    or anyone with a better memory than mine...

    What's the patented procedure to make your shots start at a number other than 10000001. I just got my M8 back with a repaired shutter, and sure enough, it is numbering everything from the beginning. I want to start this one at 101....1 instead.

    edit: for the geeks among us. This was the "shutter fault" error, the shutter did not recock. It works now, repair total time 2 weeks. The
    "unique image id" was unchanged although the image numbering got zeroed. I suppose the unchanged image id means that it was fixed, not replaced.

    Have you tried this?

    It usually works for me if I hold my nose and close my left eye while standing on my right foot in the dark.

    Thanks.

    That works for me, too. So I'm all set. But I thought Jack's solution only had you change an empty directory name on the card. That would be more elegant, and we all know how important elegance is to support our fragile egos when the world is dissing this camera.

    Yes what a love hate relationship with this camera . Sounds like a marriage. LOL

    Frankly people just need to get over it, it has become so boring I hardly read any of the threads about the whining about this or that . Maybe it just has been a long time listening to it. It is what it is and it produces great images . Frankly just that alone is enough for me. I just like seeing images folks take with it.
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    Scott, here's a GetDPI thread where you can also see how to adjust the continuous file numbering so that it becomes precisely identical with the internal hex shutter count, including the ~100 test shots from the factory.
