OK here’s the reason I wrote this post — File names you can finally change. It seems more and more of EOS 1 exclusivity ported to the 5 series and that’s a good thing. How so? If you currently work with two 5D Mark II bodies like I do, two bodies with identical file naming convention is a sorting disaster waiting to happen. In the 8 years I’ve been shooting Canon cameras, I’ve lost count the number of times my images from two bodies conflicted and the inconvenience it caused resulting in increased workflow in order not to mess up the shooting sequence. I copy all images into one large pool before sorting them by Date and Time (using BreezeBrowser’s unique filters). Working with an associate who shoots with Nikon cameras I know they have had this basic capability for a long time. In any case, kudos to Canon for this very useful improvement.
