Digital Camera Software
Use Case for photos with same Exif date
My camera has a high speed shooting mode, so it is possible that several photos will have the same exif date. It doesn't make sense to simply skip all subsequent photos. That would render the application a lot less useful. The photos still need renaming by date, but perhaps with an autogenerated postfix to indicate the order. The true ordering of high speed pics could be ascertained by sorting by the original file name.
original file name exif date new file name

Hi Greg,

That's a very valid request. I personally didn't fall in this case but some other users mentioned about it as well.
I will definitely add this feature to the next update.
Next release should be around mid November 2007.
Please come back and check for it
I love the program, but I also use high speed shooting and would REALLY appreciate a feature just like Greg suggested. Good work, thanks!
Namexif 1.4 is out and it now supports "high speed shooting" renaming!
Namexif will add dashes to differentiate filenames with same date.
For example, say you have 3 photos taken on August 15th 2007 at 6PM 5mn and 27 seconds:
* 2007-08-15 18.05.27.jpg
* 2007-08-15 18.05.27-.jpg
* 2007-08-15 18.05.27--.jpg
