It's not a failure, it's a setting in the camera menu. I've never used this camera but according to page 133 of the user manual, you set the image folder name setting to Standard instead of Date: You can change the image folder name from the standard name to the date that pictures were taken. When the name is changed to the date, pictures are saved ...


You could checkout Mylio for managing you photo library. They have a free tier that's limited in functionality. You need the paid plan (10 USD per month) for "raw support", but if I'm correct that only applies to raw processing. It should still handle all the images as a pair in the free version.


It depends on the camera. My Canon 7D Mark II has a USB 3 connector that is just as fast as most USB 3 card readers. The Canon 1D X Mark II has a gigabit ethernet connector. My Canon 5D Mark III has a USB 2 connection. I choose to use the camera for different reasons than speed. Using EOS Utility allows me to group images by date shot, create folders for ...

You can buy even faster cards, e.g. “U3”, and USB-3–based readers that can let you dump the card at 95 Mbytes/s. This will ...


Interestingly, I also found the same blog when starting out with Lightroom. There are many ways to get images organized and I found have a file-system structure is very helpful. First is that the filesystem structure is accessible without Lightroom to every other program. You can use it to quickly located images without having to load Lightroom and wait for ...


Just think of the future when Lightroom may not exist anymore : your collections would be useless. Whereas your folders will still exist. And you may need them to import your collections in the next trendy software. Moreover, if you want to upload your pictures, you will use the regular files manager and it will be more efficient to have properly named ...
