Over 10,000 Pictures?

I have a four-year-old PowerShot SD1100IS, and it's currently sitting pretty at 9,944 pictures taken. (As in, the newest file transferred to my computer is IMG_9944). Since there are only four characters in the file numbers, will it be a problem once I hit 10,000 pictures? Will it just start over from IMG_0001, or something like that?

I'm mostly asking because I'm assuming I will use up the last 54 shots sometime soon... it's just that senior prom is in two weeks (!!) and I absolutely don't want to hit 10,000 and render the camera useless in the middle of that!

Thank you in advance. :)

are you suggesting that you have almost 10,000 photos stored on your camera's SD card?

in terms of the number resetting, it probably will go back to 0001. your camera will not be useless at 10,000 photos. what it will do probably is create a new folder to save the jpgs. This is dependent on how you set your file structure in your camera. You can review your settings by going into the menu.

To avoid overwriting photos on your computer, do not store all your photos in 1 single folder. create separate subfolders.

I don't think there are 10,000 photos on there - right now I have IMG_9669 - IMG_9944 on the camera itself. The rest of the pictures have been transferred to my computer and deleted from the camera, so I'm assuming it's just those 275 on the camera itself. I'm pretty sure the camera would have conked out already if I tried to store 10,000 pictures on the SD card!

The number resetting is what I was trying to figure out. So you're saying that it will just go back to 0001 and I won't have to worry? I haven't ever touched the file structure in the camera since I just transfer the pictures to my computer right away.

I do store photos separately on my computer; don't worry! There are folders... and subfolders... and even more subfolders... lol.

no you dont need to worry. once you hit 9999, another folder will be generated by the camera on the sd card and start saving photos at 0001. just make sure when you transfer photos to your computer than you look through both folders. if youre not sure you can just take some photos for fun and force your camera to hit 10000.

ive taken my cameras pass 30k, they all start back at 0001 and a new folder is generated by the camera on the sd card to store the new photos.

Go out and take 75 pictures today! Then, it will roll over during a non-critical photoshoot and you'll know exactly how it behaves when it goves over 10K.

Have fun at your prom! Take lots of pictures.

Sorry, but this seems like a blonde moment..

Would it not be just as easy to go out and take 55 ( 54+1 ) pictures BEFORE the event and be done with it ? Rhetorical question..

Reminds me of way back when everyone ( in the military/Army ) - just before New Years 2000, when the upper echelon believed that all of the computers were going to stop working when they rolled over to 01-01-2000 00:00:01 AM. At least at this one post, their "Grand Idea" was to station a soldier at every computer and watch it roll over- effectively ruining their New Years.. OK- WHAT IF it did stop functioning- then what ? Buy new computers ? Commit Hara Kiri ? What ? None of them gave a thought about just changing the time, on the computer, ahead of time- to 12-31-1999 23:59:00 PM and watching it roll over ahead of time- and see if it was OK! Really though- this was their best plan- yep- station a soldier at each computer- and watch it roll over..

So, yeah, my response- go out - take another 55 to 60 pictures beforehand- and you're done!
