Seeking Camera with custom naming capability for each image
Hi,.

Can anyone suggest a high quality digital camera that can allow a user to create custom name (for image) prior or after shooting..

We need the camera for commercial purposes and need to identify each location we are snapping. A numbering convention method won't do. As we will shoot 200 images per day. I f we snapped 200 restaurant images in one day, we'd like our custom naming convention to let us know which restaurant it should be tagged to, Currently we are writing the image default name on a pda and later we are able to match them up. We'd like our custom name to have the businessname_date.jpg. Anything out there?.

Thanks in advance,John..

....as you are shooting? I don't know of a camera with that ability, but it seems like there are/were some that had the ability to record along the way....

May I suggest you try asking this question on the Pro Forum. Perhaps someone there might have a better answer for you..

It's a great question, and I hope someone out there will know..

The camera file number will give you the date and time of the shot..

Good luck with your search..

Thanks Lucy,.

I'll try posting in the Pro Section..

Btw. I realize the camera file number provides you the date and time of shot, however, it does not allow me to append or match the right information that corresponds to the image..

Cheers,John..

Several cameras allow you to use a GPS to add the coordinates of each photo site to the EXIF. Then you can use software like Lightroom to export a (PPed) file with the date + time + location in the name. Would that help?.

We deal with a similar issue at work, and no matter how careful you think you are, pictures get mixed up. Our solution is to write the name of the test setup, time, date etc. on a small whiteboard and photograph it before taking any pictures. Anything where we tried naming pictures or storing them in custom directories or memory chips resulted in too many errors...

...I have done this with flowers at botanical gardens.....photographing the nametag just prior to photographing the flower. It would be easy to photography a note listing where or what the place is..

I'm pretty sure my old Canon Ixus had a setting that allowed you to record sound at the same time as taking the photo. It may be that Canon continued offering this function, if I'm right about it. You could ask on the Canon forum.Androohttp://Androo.smugmug.com..

You can custom name each file, and spend your entire day doing so..

The whiteboard suggestion above is the best possible way to keep things straight..

We call it a "board shot", and it is always the first image in a series that we shoot. You can even make up a small card, laminate it, and use a dry erase marker to fill it out each time. The one I use is about 5x7. It's lasted 5 years now... (G).

I doubt that you'll find one. As far as I know, all modern digital cameras follow the DCF specification for folder and file names, and that doesn't give much latitude..

My wife's old 2-megapixel Kodak DC-290 (from 1999) allowed custom folder names (up to 8 capital letters and/or digits), but it was probably among the last digital cameras to do so as DCF came out at about that time..

If you're taking a number of photos at each site, you might consider using a separate memory card for each site. Beyond that, the "board shot" sounds like the best idea...
