My A7iii keeps resetting the shutter count. Any ideas on some setting I've activated by mistake? no idea how many total shots I have taken now.

mine is doing something simmilar, i changed the prefix for my images from dcm to dav and my first batch of images was fine, then it decided to change to _dav not sure why it changed, did u change from compressed to uncomressed? thats the only thing i have done but not sure why that would change it

The underscore is an indicator to show your file was recorded compressed.

Uncompressed RAW = DSC00111
Compressed RAW = _DSC00111

Sorry if this has been discussed already. I discovered a feature yesterday while viewing images in the a7iii. Pretty neat to see a calendar of your image dates

Travis and Robert:
When is the peak blooming time for the rhododendrons at Roan Mountain? Mid June? Thinking about doing a camptrip at the state park there.

What Travis said. Please let me know that you are there. We'll shake hands. I was just up that way 45 min's ago looking for the Milky Way. Really nice park. Another
lesser known park is on Wilbur Lake...really a different feel there than any place I've seen in TN.

I went to show a friend a photo I had just snapped and he said all he sees is a calendar. When I looked at it, that was on the screen haha. I noticed my thumb was resting on the AEL button, as you can see it's close in the photo, when I turned the camera screen to him. While viewing a photo, press the AEL button twice

Guys, I think there are a few of us who carry more than just camera gear and do more hiking/trekking...?

I have an old Flipside 300 which carries my gear and a flask fine. But it's not comfortable after a while....

After some research (which can be never ending) I'm currently looking at the Manfrotto Off Road 30L.... I think it has enough room for camera gear plus top storage for waterproofs, jacket, fleece, suncream, food, drink, etc It also has fully adjustable (height) shoulder straps, hip straps, mesh back, etc as per a "hiking" backpack.

I did also eye the Lowepro Sport 300 AW but it has a smaller camera section....

Mainly, I want comfort. My lower back aches and hurts with anything more than a few hours or miles with the Flipside. I want dual usage. I want fairly easy access to camera. I don't want a big square black backpack that looks like a suitcase! I have a budget of around £150 but saying that, I do want to buy once and buy properly so there is some play there.....

Any other suggestions that you lot use in similar situations..?

My gear = A7, 28-70, 35/2.8, 85/1.8, blower, filters.....

Lee I've done a bit of true multi-week backpacking (300+ mile at a wack) over the years.
I also have many true backpacks and many true camera packs.
I've found NO happy melding of the two.
Like photography is a compromise so are packs......access 99 percent of the time means way less comfort as the miles wear on.
Comfort always comes at a price of weight.
So pick your poison-access, comfort, weight carrying ability.

So the difference between slack-packing (day hiking/tramping) vs. overnight and multi-day backpacking is what needs to be determined AND
how much weight total you're to carry.
You have a lightweight photog kit, that's a plus. Water/wind proofs/flask/first aid/signally/firestart​ing/energy + camera kit should mean less than 10 pounds, err 4.5 kgs.
There was a time in my life on multi-day backpacing trips when 10 pounds was my baseweight (everything but food and water).

What I found on the true long distance hikes of 1-2 weeks my camera kit was downsized to 8 ounces/Sony TX30 or the Lumix G5 with one extra lens.

So again, slack-packing or backpacking?

If slackpacking and doing big miles (in my day 20-26 miles and 3000-6000 feet of gain in a day) I'd still downsize the camera kit.

On the easy day hikes of 5-10 miles total I'd carry equivalents to what you listed. Then I'd be back to comfort vs. accessibility. Comfort always won for me.
I still think all the 10 essentials (water purification/fire starting/ wind and waterproofs) + camera kit can be done slackpacking for less than 10 pounds total.
Thats an a7xxxx body with two lenses and a Sirui carbon tripod.

So the pack...well you're over there, but me choosing I'd go with the LowePro Photohatchback.
It's a tight fit in the upper compartment getting the wind/water + a vest (I always always always carry a vest for my core temp) and you can get a a7/a7s body in
the bottom with an extra lens + a bit of room for some more essential.

Better yet it can be had on flea-bay for less than $40.

My ONLY complaint and I've carried this pack for hundreds of miles is tripod carry which sucks. My answer to that was the Sirui

Fell walking you might not have a lot of tall trees and this short tripod just might work.
