  1. Nice I will definitely try this out So you are for formating the card anyway, on camera or laptop but just let it restart the counter and rename it when you import 🤔 Maybe I can script something with Hazel or Automator, to copy the M1,2,3,4 → Format →Put back the settings files in 🤔
  2. I didn't find a way to delete all files at once on camera. I'll look for that Thanks [EDIT] As I thought, apprently there is no way to delete all, only day by day... But it's already a step... Source: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/61096618
  3. It's quite a big extra step to do, but I guess it's one way of solving it... Are you renaming in camera or on the computer ? I guess you then have to manually enter the number to follow the previous sequence. But this is probably the shortest way.
  4. Hi everybody, I've recently done a switch from Nikon to Sony and even if I'm happy for the most part, it seems like the most simple things to do ever are getting crazy complicated with Sony oO Such as importing files on your laptop for example... For instance, I'm a hybrid shooter. I've done photography for 10 years and brought the A7III to get more into video. After testing different file management settings, I decided to save my pictures on the Card 2 and the footages on Card 1. This allow me to get the best performance of the SD XC II and bigger storage for videos, and not damage my expensive SD XC II with simple pictures. Another reason why I separate videos and pictures is because I noticed that everytime I'm formating the card, the footages naming system restart from number 1... I'm filming mostly documentaries and working on different projects in the same time, and I can never plan how many footages I'll get in a day so I'm trying to empty my cards every night to get it ready for next day. So my editing software (and myself) get crazy with 200 files named C0001.MP4... Also the Memory settings "M1, M2, M3, M4" are actually stored on the SD card and I'd like to keep them 🙄 I've found a walkaround to this problem by NOT formating the cards and just manually deleting the files after the copy. But this created another problem... When deleting the files from the laptop and putting back the SD card in the camera, the Playback window still count the deleted files but consider them as "Unable to Display", which is normal because they are deleted... Off course I could delete it from the camera directly, but the deleting menu is so counter intuitive and take so much time, especially if I'm not able to export for few days, then the only way is deleting date by date, on both cards... And half of the time I got an error message... 😞 "Writing to the memory card was not completed correctly. Recover data ?" (if they've been deleted already from laptop) Soooo after all this extensive message, I would like to know how, you guys, manage to do something as SIMPLE as Importing your files, from a Sony camera 😅 Thank you 🙏😊
