"Directory Structure on D5000"


US
          

Is it possible to have the d5000 to auto create date directories and save the files in there based of date ? I am pretty sure I saw one of the older nikon dxx's be able to do so.

Also, totally off topic but; Could someone point me in the right direction, I am looking to do some home family portraits with a tripod. Was thinking of having a plain white back drop so that I could photoshop in some backgrounds. So direction to lighting, backdrop selection and general do's dont's would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Scott,

Welcome to Nikonians!
You can by creating a new Active folder (page 152 of the D5000 Users Manual) every day before you capture the first image. If you use this method, be careful when you download the images to your computer that you don't forget to include the images in older (not active) folders on the memory card be checking the root directory and expanding all of the folders on the memory card.
You could also use Custom setting d4 File Number Sequence (page 159 of the D5000 Users Manual) and sort the dates out when you download the images to your computer.
You might ask the question about portrait photography in the Glamour & Portrait, Commercial & Studio Photography forum
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

An alternate approach to the in camera directories would be to use a third-party downloader to rename the files and/or directories during the transfer from the memory card to your computer. I am a big fan of Downloader Pro by BreezeSys.com .

Of course, this really depends on the goal you are trying to accomplish.
