Shutter reading {frame}
« on: September 28, 2016, 01:42:24 AM »
Ahoi,
so fare I know, PM determines the frame number from the original filename with {frame}.
Is this the accurate shutter reading?
As Canon restarts numbering after 9999 Image, will {frame} display the next image number with 10000?
Thanks,
Gerd

No.  You would want to use the {actuations} variable instead.  But not all cameras provide this data, and some cameras provide the data but it is encrypted.
