Using the Camera with a Computer

The camera creates a file and saves it each time you shoot a snapshot, record a 
movie, or perform any other operation that stores data. Files are grouped by storing 
them in folders. Each file and folder has its own unique name.

• For details about how folders are organized in memory, see “Memory Folder 

Structure” (page 131).

• You can view folder and file names on your computer. For details about how file 

names are displayed on the camera’s monitor screen, see page 12.

• The total number of folders and files allowed depends on the image size and 

quality, and capacity of the memory card being used for storage.
