Today I shot in Uncompressed RAW for the first time, as a bit of an experiment, and after exporting to my saved folder it has named the files with an underscore prefix, so, for example file 1380 is now _DSC1380. It has meant that the files are now out of sequence in my save folder. Is this just something it does for Uncompressed vs Compressed? It doesn't seem to make much sense.

So I've since found out that this denotes an Adobe RGB file, which it is because I changed it yesterday.
