    So the filenames on my D50 used to be DSC_xxxx.nef or .jpg. Recently I noticed that the filenames have changed so that they are now _DSCxxxx.nef or .jpg. I have looked through the menu to see if there is a way to change t back, but so far all I've seen is that I can reset the filename counter, but I don't want to do that. Anybody have any ideas as to how to fix this other than re-naming all of my files after I download them?

    Thanks in advance.
  2. It depends on the color space you choose. _DSCxxx is Adobe RGB and DSC_xxx is sRGB.
  3. Thanks Phil. I was wondering the same thing and noticed it happend around the time I tried adobe RGB.

    ahh, that is interesting. I've also noticed that when I open my pictures (even after converting them to .jpg) in CaptureNX, they really pop, but when I open them in ACDSee or any other image viewing program, they tend to look a bit flat. Is this due to the color space I choose, or is it just a crappy image viewing program?
  5. I've noticed a change in the filename designation too and I thought it was because I inserted my brand new Sandisk 2GB card without formatting it first. The other 1GB cards work fine but between those 2 cards, the placement of "DSC" is different. I shoot RAW all the time, but on occasion JPG but not very often.

    I hadn't considered the idea that it may have to do with the format chosen but it sounds right.
