Default Re: Help needed in sorting Images out in sequence

I had a similar problem when I shot a wedding with two cameras - one loaned to me by a friend. I wanted to merge the two sets of photos so that all images fitted the shoot timeline. Problem is, my friends 1D and my 50D both had different ideas on what to name the photos.

I ended up writing a script in perl to retrieve the shoot time from the image EXIF data, and add the "real" image name at the end so that all images were now sorted exactly how I wanted, and the original names were still available.

I'm not in front of my computer right now, but the names would look like T150123-IMG0198.jpg for the 50D images. Of course, if the shoot extended over days, this could also be prefixed with the date (such as D20110521-T150123-IMG0198.jpg). Long name, but very descriptive!
