Photo Loss



Someone has rightly said, ‘Memories fade, but Photographs don’t.’

We rejoice our past in all the futures times to come, by capturing our present through those beautiful photographs and videos.

As well know, today is the days of computers and Internet. Hence, you can hardly find the use of roll-based cameras, where you need to first capture the image on to the photographic films and then further develop them to get the pictures you have clicked. There were many issues and demerits with this technology, which digital photography has successfully resolved.

Digital photography makes use of different camera technology and data saving mechanism than the traditional one. The image or the videos, those captured by a digital camera, are ultimately saved on to its memory. It can be both the internal camera memory and an external memory cards. A small SD card inside your camera can save hundreds of images and hours long of videos.

Let us have a brief look at the various memory cards, their brands, types, data storage capacity, and every other detail.

In the world of memory cards, you can find different brands of cards, including Sony, Transcend, Kingston, SanDisk, Panasonic, Lexar, SAMSUNG, OLYMPUS, Pretec, Strontium, TOSHIBA, and few others. These manufacturers have introduced various makes/models of cards to the market with different storage capacities. Mostly, you can find the following variants of memory cards.

  • CompactFlash Cards
  • MiniCard (Miniature Card)
  • SmartMedia Card (SSFDC)
  • Memory Stick
  • SecureMMC
  • Secure Digital (SD/SDHC/SDXC) memory cards

With the advancement of technology in flash storage, memory cards are getting more and more capacious, robust, and diverse. You can find that majority of people use SD cards or some variants of the card for saving photos and videos.

MiniSD and MicroSD Cards came as the first most popular variants of memory cards that offered varied storage capacity up to 4 GB. The next generation of cards, such as Secure Digital Input Output (SDIO) cards, High-Capacity (SDHC), and the eXtended-Capacity (SDXC) cards offered even more storage space. Now, we have 64 GB, 128 GB, 256 GB, and even 2 TB of SDXC cards available in the market based on the NAND flash technology.

Well, with growing storage space, improved data saving mechanism, one thing is yet to be completely taken care of, data loss. Data loss from the SD memory cards of your digital camera is a sudden and very serious issue, which happens with most of the users.

Imagine, you are rest assured that you have captured some of the best memories of a recent family event, vacation, school event, marriage, or any other important assignment of your. And, the next day you find that your memory card inside the camera containing some 32 GB of data is not reading.

What would you do?

Formatting the card may bring it back in to working condition. Still, the primary concern is the voluminous data in the form of images, videos, and songs lying in the card.

Why Photos were Lost or Deleted from Memory / SD Card of Digital Camera

  • Accidental Formatting of Cards

Accidental formatting of the memory card of your camera is one of the most common scenarios of photo loss that users encounter on daily basis. One wrong move or mishandling of the camera button leads to such an accidental formatting of the card. After this, the card becomes empty and all the pictures get deleted.

  • File System Corruption

At times, due to the internal file system corruption of the memory card; though the data of the card resides inside it, you cannot make use of it. It is somewhat like barred for copying, editing, transferring to other storage media, or even viewing with the camera itself. In such a case, the data is available; however, in a state of inaccessibility. Hence, it is also a clear case of data loss.

  • Memory Card Unreadability

Similarly, some card errors result into an unreadable card. You may have encountered frequent error messages that read ‘Card is not Readable’ or ‘Unable to Read the Card’, etc. This is also a case of data inaccessibility, where in spite of the existence of the data inside the card, it cannot be used.

  • Accidentally or Intentionally Deletion

This is one prominent case of photo and video loss. Bulk deletion of unwanted photos from the camera or the card leads to deletion of some of the most important and precious photos. Cases are also witnessed, where many people, knowingly delete photos and videos from other’s cameras.
