    I currently use continuous, where it fills up folders ... 150, 151, 152,
    .... independent of downloads.

    My question is, if I try out "auto reset," where the camera resets every
    time I upload ... if I later go back to continuous, will the camera
    start up from where I left off before? Or will it start over again at
    folder 101?

    That doesn't seem to be in the manual. I already have a system going
    with Continuous mode, and I'd like to try out the reset mode but only if
    I can go back to where I was before with Continuous.

    Yes and no, the camera will start where it left off for each mode.

    So if you use the reset option to go back to zero, you can immediately
    change it to continuous, and it will then start counting up again, but
    from zero. And you can't go back to continuous and start at image 152
    since the card and camera will both think you started from scratch.

    If you want to have a running count, don't change anything.

    If it works the same as other canons (A40 and A95), you can fake it out. For
    a card with existing images, it will always increment from that image. So
    take a shot, put the card in a reader and rename the image to be one less
    than what you want the next number to be, put card back in camera and use. I
    found the camera didn't seem to care that the directory name wasn't what it
    would have normally used, it will create a new correctly named directory for
    that next shot. If it doesn't, rename the directory to what you think it
    should be and good luck figuring that out from their manual. Realize I'm not
    familiar with the 350D.
