5DIII custom file names ?
« on: July 24, 2012, 09:08:13 PM »
It's cool that they finally added the feature to custom name the files coming out of the 5DIII which was possible on 1-series cameras...But... I tried it and the first character (of 4) I enter never gets included.  Why?  The first character is always just the familiar underscore "_".

If for example I want my initials "BML_", I end up with "_ML_". 

Anybody else seeing this?  Any solution? 

Thanks in advance.

Dunno if it's different in 5D3, but I believe that first _ is an indication that you're using Adobe RGB for your color space. sRGB keeps the first letter as is. At least with my cameras...
