Re: The "picture remaining" number on the display panel...

The camera is operating correctly. The total number of pictures you can store depends on your pictures' content and messages' length. So the number doesn't always change, especially when you're using standard image quality.

Error message showing up is r03


r03 is NOT an error message. It indicates the number of remaining pictures that can be stored in the camera's built-in high speed memory buffer (before the camera will need to send them to the memory card). Each successive picture taken rapidly will decrease this r03 number by 1. Eventually the r01 will be on screen, and after that picture is taken, the camera will not shoot until the memory buffer has been transferred. This may take a few seconds, and then shooting can continue again.

The remaining picture counter stays at 999


The maximum number of remaining shots that the display can show is 999.
If the memory card has space for more than 999 pictures, the number will stay at 999 till less than 999 remain and it will start counting down from there.

Control Panel Display


The display can only show 3 numbers, so when the memory card can hold over 1000 pictures you will see a "1.0" with a little "K" above and to the right of the 0. Let's say that you have a 2gig memory card and you have your picture quality set to JPEG Normal, you might see 1.0 indicating 1000 available image spots available. If you set to JPEG basic it will say 1.9 meaning 1.9 thousand or 1900 images. With a 2gig card you will see it drop below 1000 if you set your quality to RAW or JPEG fine.

You can add memory to your camera by purchasing an xd memory card.
Compatible cards
xD-Picture Card (16MB – 1GB)
There are two ways to record the pictures you take with this camera.
Recording pictures to the internal memory
• Pictures are recorded to the internal memory, and when the number of storable still
pictures reaches 0, you must connect the camera to a computer to download the
pictures, and then erase the pictures from the internal memory.
Using an xD-Picture Card (optional)
• Pictures are recorded to the card when inserted in the camera. When the card is
full, you download the pictures to a computer, and then either erase the pictures
from the card or use a new card.
• Pictures are not recorded to the internal memory when a card is inserted in the
camera. Pictures in the internal memory can be copied to the card using the
[BACKUP] function.
g“BACKUP Copying pictures in the internal memory to the card” (P.25)
“The card” (P.60)
Number of storable still pictures and recording length of movies

• If you use a non-Olympus card or a card used for another application, such as for
a computer, the message [CARD ERROR] is displayed. To use this card with this
camera, use the [FORMAT] function to format the card.

Sony F55 Recorded Display


The filename (e.g. DSC0012.jpg) shows the image number, the filespec shows the date and time recorded. Most software will give you document info about resolution of the image. I wouldn't worry about what the battery status was when the shot was taken or how many other images were on the Mstick. I guess I'm not sure what you need.

Pictures Remaining number change after I take a picture


The file size of a picture depends on the resolution you choose and the complexity of the scene. A picture of blue sky has a smaller file size than a picture of autumn leaves. If the Pictures Remaining number does not change when you take a picture, it generally means that the picture does not take up sufficient memory to decrease the number. This is normal. The number is not a count of consecutive pictures; it is counting available space - the approximate number of pictures remaining.
