Hi, Can anyone explain what has happened to my new 7d as I was using it with a shutter count of 816 frames and then 4 minutes later its 3630.I was only taking pictures of birds of prey so should only have increased shutter count by 50 at the most.

did you change cards ?
816 to 3630 in 4 minutes?
Shooting birds of prey, my response would be 'what took you so long'?
Mind you, editing is a swine of a job....
Cant remember Colin and looking on dpp it reads img 0835 cr2 and then the next is img 3645 cr2
If I recall correctly, the image counter starts from the zero and goes up sequentially, but if you load up a card that has images with higher index numbers it will start above the highest number on the card to prevent 'overwriting' of images, and this happens even if the card had previously been last used in a different Canon camera. The image number bears no relation to shutter count - you can even reset the imade number in the menu.
My 7D shows strange image counter numbers. I just simply ignore this and move on!
