[quote=kalak;14402702]LOL, I am a bit puzzled by your strong reaction to the folder structure...QUOTE]
I have gotten very accustomed to the way digital cameras which record stills and videos collect both filetypes in the same folder. This makes backup of my photos and videos very easy and I don't worry about forgetting the photos when I copy the videos.
The second, and perhaps larger complaint is the lack of continuous file numbering. With a digital camera, it remembers what number I am on even as I switch memory cards. If the last media I recorded was 2136, I like knowing that the next one will be # 2137 whether it is a photo or a video.
These numbering kinks and the limit on olders digital cameras of 100 photos per folder are issues that were common on older digital cameras, but "just work" on the newer ones. I guess I am simply frustrated since this seems like a big step backwards in terms of intelligent, in-camera organization of my digital memories. I feel like I've stepped back into the dark ages of digital photography.
(P.S. I don't know what "chapter" information is stored in the AVCHD. From what I can tell, each file is just pretending to be a separate chapter. This is obvious behavior that the PS3 or PC should be able to deliver without needed a complex file and folder structure. I don't need a DVD's worth of complexity, I just want videos and photos in one convenient place.)
