    My new (used) E-PM1 seems to reset the counter to zero every time I change the battery or format the card. How can I set this so I don't end up with a hundred pictures named 000001 ??

    Sorry if there is a thread on this already, I did not see one come up when I searched.

    It's not the shutter count, it's just the filename. It happens when you change cards.

    I don't have your camera, but on the E-M5 it's in Gears, Gear H (record/erase), File Name, and change Reset to Auto.
