I’m guessing a lot of us have probably experienced the “thrill” of watching a car odometer roll over to zero’s (not exactly sure why that’s a thrill, but it was always cause for celebration).
Well, I just experienced the photographic equivalent, I guess – my file numbering system on my dSLR just rolled over to restart at IMG_0001, meaning I crossed the 10,000 shot boundary. It took me 3 years and about 3 months.
So, assuming most other cameras have similar numbering schemes and at least some of you are weird like me and notice those kinds of things, how long did it take you to reach that milestone?October 20, 2010 at 9:18 pm #34515orionidParticipant
Mine has three additional digits on the folder name and just rolls that up.
The d50 was well into 102NCD50 when it died, and started counting over at 100NCD50 after resurrection. The d90 is about to roll into 102NCD90.
So, just over 60,000 shots since September 2006.October 20, 2010 at 9:40 pm #34516
Yeah, I guess mine increments the folder number after rolling over, too, but I didn’t pay any attention to it since this is the first time it’s happened.
I also assumed I’d be on the low end of the quantity scale, although I’m not sure I’d have guessed you at 60K with just another 10 months time!October 20, 2010 at 11:06 pm #34517ravnosticParticipant
I crossed 25K at Mormon Lake on Monday.October 20, 2010 at 11:27 pm #34518Pope_Larry_IIParticipant
Wow, I’ve taken 8k in 10 months. Granted I have taken about 1500 for work, and took 1000 in Mexico in 10 days. Not everything is good, a lot will never see the light of day.
At my last job, I took 30GB of photos in 5 years. I averaged 400-500 pics a month with a P&S.October 21, 2010 at 12:45 am #34519nobigdealParticipant
64,419 on my 40D since June of 08 and 39,127 on my 50D since August 09. I’ll bang out anywhere from 16-32 gigs for an average show. (800-2000 images depending which camera I use as the main one and how many bands)October 21, 2010 at 1:33 am #34520
Um, wow! All of you. Looks like I need to get off my butt and take a few (thousand) more pictures!October 21, 2010 at 2:55 am #34521CuriousParticipant
my cameras don’t number that way since i assign names to each batch of photos. of the several digital cameras i own or have owned the total is 80GB for 30,790 files/images in 596 folders. this digital history is 8 years old. so it looks like i’ve been slacking off 🙂October 21, 2010 at 3:16 am #34522sleepingParticipant
Hmm. I put about 10,000 on my D70 and 8,000 on the D90 (plus probably 3000 or so frames of 35mm) over about 5 1/2 years, but I’m up to 6137 on the D700 in about 4 months, so I seem to be speeding up 🙂October 21, 2010 at 4:04 am #34523ravnosticParticipant
Me, too, sleeping. It took almost two years for the first 10k, then I found Farktography last February and took the other 15k (but now I take much better pictures, I like to think.)November 11, 2010 at 6:53 pm #34524lokisbongParticipant
I just rolled over the count on my Canon yesterday for the second time since I got it christmas of 08. The first 10000 took a little over 2 years and the next 10000 since march of this year. my camera has been very busy it seems.
