Does this imply that you popped up the flash manually? It wasn't a mode where it deploys automatically?

I don't have any 7D Mark II, so I can't repeat the procedure to see if I get the same result.


It was manually engaged.

I have since switched the unit from AdobeRGB to sRGB ..... and have went out and about shooting, trying my best to do the things I did on the cruise ..... switching modes, flash on/off and the like ..... and so far cannot duplicate the naming issue.

I made about 25 changes in camera menu setting prior to the cruise, trying to configure it to what would be the best for all around use.

The only reason I was in AdobeRGB was that I read where the histogram display was more accurate as opposed to being in sRGB.

I shoot only in RAW and honestly use the histogram view randomly.

I feel that the camera is fine ..... now ..... but will continue to exercise it hard for a few days before the return period expires.

My next step will be to identify and but the lenses that will perform the best on the 7D II and it's sensor.

Truly weird.

It is perplexing and it made the workflow a little more difficult .... I was happy someone posted that thread about it from two years ago on DP Review.

I signed up there just to be able to PM that poster and see what if anything they found out.

Not a file naming problem, just a question to satisfy my curiosity.

My 7D2 generates a file name along the lines of xxIAx####
If I change the prefix to xxIBx will the file numbers remain in sequence
So if before prefix change file name is xxIAx0033
After the prefix change can I expect the file name to be xxIBx0034

Not a show stopper but files copied to my iPad are with original files names and duplicates won't work. Right now I do the name edit manually but it amounts to a very small number of files so...

Again, just curious.

I haven't tried it, but I think so. But the file names can't be five letters and then four digits?
