D300 image files out of order

    This weekend I shot a K9 trials ... you know, police dogs doing police dog stuff - running, subduing, protecting, finding - that sort of thing. I was working with my D300 w/ MB-D10 and using my 80-200 AFS lens. I was set to aperture priority at F5.6 resulting in images of ISO 100 and 1/1000 or so exposure.

    To get good images of the pursuit and speed events, I bumped my CL shot speed setting to 6 FPS. Normally I'd use the CH setting, but for reasons I can't explain and don't remember I did it through the menu this time.

    The result was that I had many pictures out of sequence within the bursts. I'm not sure what caused it or if it's even a problem. Right now, I'm of the opinion that I did something I shouldn't. But I'm interested if anyone else has experienced this, whether you'd consider it a problem. and if so whether there's a solution.

    Thanks for your thoughts.
  2. If you delete files the camera fills in the empty spaces. Can't you sort by date/time shot in your processing/sorting/cataloging software and get them back into order?
