           Summary: sort order of filenames in camera - no way to set or
           Product: digikam
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Fedora RPMs
        OS/Version: unspecified
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: digikam-devel at kde.org
        ReportedBy: kiltedknight at verizon.net

Version:           0.10.0-0.16.rc1.fc10 (using KDE 4.2.1)
Installed from:    Fedora RPMs

The default sort order of the listed pictures in a camera is now the most
recent first.  This is bad for the following reasons:

1) It's immutable
2) If you have duplicate filenames that you are downloading into an album, it
can take a long time before you hit the first potential duplicate filename... a
situation that will happen if you want to download images from multiple memory

Can you please put in an option to allow for a sort order?  This change was a
surprise to me and is making me pull out what little hair I have left because
of item 2 in my list of bad reasons for doing this.  I recently photographed an
event and used two separate cards... and several photos ended up with identical
filenames (Nikon D80).  When I try to import them into the same album, I start
with the first card and get pictures DSC_0001.JPG through DSC_0301.JPG.  When I
switch to the second card, I have to download DSC_0110.JPG through
DSC_0433.JPG.  Because of this new sort order, it's a long time before I get to
the duplicate filenames.
