    Hello.

    I'm an Olympus camera user for less than a week.
    So far so good (very good indeed). I think this is the best camera experience I've ever have.
    I will post my first pictures taken with it this weekend.
    Actually, I'm thinking about start a new thread showing my portraiture work (some of you already know a bit).

    Yesterday I've got home from a photographic event with pictures on 2 different SD cards and I didn't lose time and start to copy the pictures to my Mac external HD.
    I was surprised when I start copying the second SD card and saw a warning message saying that those picture numbers already exist on the folder...
    Is it normal that the each time we change card the camera starts to count and name pictures from the beginning?

    Check the manual, but I think that the default is to reset the file naming. There should be an option in the menu to continue the numbering convention/reset it. See what your camera is set at.
