Last Saturday as i was sorting through the photos i took of aircraft, i noticed that my camera had made two different folders on my SD card.
The first folder was from some previous shooting and i had not formatted the card. The second folder was created because i had surpassed 2000 “actuation’s” on my camera.
Not sure why 2000 is a special number, but the camera decided to create a new folder for the photos that started at 2000. Anything below that, went to the old folder.
In reality, i have no idea how many actuation’s i have on my X-P1. The number 2000 is a very rough number, since there is no real “actuation counter” on the X-P1 as there was on my Nikon’s.
Therefore, despite the fact that the last photo i took had a number of 2051, actual actuation’s are most likely a lot higher.
Since i have had my XP1 for nearly 9 months, 2051 “actuation’s” is not all that many. It means i have taken about 7.59 photos a day for the last 9 months. I got some catching up to do!
I am pleased to say that in those 2051+ actuation’s, i have had no problems/issues with my camera. Of course, that should be expected with a flag ship camera.
In regards to my X10, i have many more “actuation’s” on that camera since it was bought used.
