Adding date to imported file names

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Hello All,


New to the Sony A7iii,,   Called Sony,,  no good answer,,,  searched the web and think there is no solution. 


I am accustom to have the date as part of the file name when importing.  Our Nikon would always import with the date created as part of the file name with a sequential number following it.  In the last decade I never had a duplicate file.   With the sony I just imported~1200 pics and windows generated ~60 folder and in each folder the file began with 001.  Please tell me there is a way to change the way the file is named.  

I see where the first 3 character can be changed.  What i find is multiple memory card,  formatted or a second camera is going to make a huge mess of my way of doing it.

If there is a preferred way to import from the A7 I am open to new software.

(Inserted a jpg image but it didn't showing properly but a GIF does albeit with odd colors.)
