    STOP using a formatted Blackmagic Camera Card!

    In order to recover deleted footage from a formatted Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Card, do not use the formatted Blackmagic camera card as soon as you realize the loss. Overwritten storage media drastically reduces the chances of 100% successful recovery.

But the fact is that the videos and photos in these cards can be lost easily at any time due to formatting, corruption, or physical damage. Seasoned photographers always follow the golden rule of ‘Prevention is better than cure.’

    PRO TIPS: Protect footage in camera cards:

    • Use multiple small-capacity SD cards instead of a single large-sized card.
    • Do not use an SD card when it is low on storage.
    • Do not use an SD card with a low camera battery.
    • Carefully insert/remove the SD card from the computer and camera.
    • Maintain multiple backups, prefer Cloud backup
