Make folders in camera

Why useful

In case you are shooting several motifs during the day and would like to sort them right away. Therefore OM-D cameras allow you to make folders in camera. When your motif is changing you can change the folder and therefore the images are sorted when you are coming home. Depending on your workflow this could be very helpful.

How to make folder in camera

The easiest way to reach the settings menu is as in most cases the Super Control Panel. While shooting the Super Control Panel is reachable via the “OK” button.

2 Choose the option “Assign Save Folder”. You can choose here wither to make “New Folder”* or choose an “Existing Folder”.

*If you would like to make a folder with your computer, please take care that this folder is located in the folder “DCIM” and that the folder name has the structure 101OLYMP otherwise the camera is not able to find it.

3 In case you would like to make a new folder, the following dialogue allows you to adjust the number of the folder. An own name is not possible.

On the same place, you can select the folder you would like to save the images. Please be aware that the replay mode can only show the images of the chosen folder.
In case you have more than one folder you can move images by pressing the “OK” button in the replay mode.
