Testimonial - Digital Photo Recovery Software

Some of the digital cameras allow you to click snaps in both JPEG as well as RAW image file format. Raw image files are unprocessed or minimally processed files. Digital cameras, image scanners and motion picture film scanners uses RAW image file format to store files. However, some of the common RAW image file formats include .bay (Casio), .cr2, .crw (Canon), .dcs, .dcr, .kdc (Kodak), .mef (Mamiya), .mrw (Minolta), .pef (Pentax), .raf (Fuji) and .raw, .rw2 (Panasonic). There are different kinds of memory cards such as Compact Flash (CF), Smart Media Card, Secure Digital cards(SD), XD cards, Multimedia Cards(MMC), Mini SD cards and Micro SD cards that are commonly used to store pictures in digital cameras.

When you click a snap in JPEG file format, the images are processed using the in camera’s  parameter and you get a ready to print image. Whereas, if you click a snap using RAW image file format, the images need to be further edited in a computer before you can view or print them. This feature, though time consuming, especially when you have more number of photos, lets you change many of the parameters like contrast, sharpness, white balance, saturation etc., of a image, using a RAW convertor. The RAW file often known to as the digital negative, can be converted to JPEG or TIFF, which enable you to store, print or further manage the image. RAW files have widespread application in professional photography. Most of the professional digital cameras use Smart Media or Miniature cards for storing files. RAW files can be edited only if you transfer it to your Personal Computer or laptop.

 

Data loss can occur due to following scenarios mentioned below:

  • The cable is pulled off while transferring files from the camera to your PC or laptop.
  • Accidentally deleted files from the Smart Media card.
  • Unintentionally formatted the card.
  • Improper shutdown of the system due to power fluctuations or application malfunction.
  • Backup is corrupt or incorrect backup practices.
  • Virus attack is also the most common reason for corrupting files stored in smart media card.

 

Even after losing image files from the Smart media card, you can still recover it using specialized digital photo recovery software. When files are deleted or lost from the Smart media card, they do not get erased completely, but the pointers pointing to those file locations are erased hence, makes the data inaccessible. The specialized photo recovery tool is enabled with powerful algorithms to trace and restore such image files effectively.

 

However, if you use the same camera to click more pictures after data loss, then the chances of recovering deleted or lost files decreases severely, because the new pictures will overwrite the lost or deleted files. So, immediately after you lose files from a Smart Media card remove the card from the your digital camera and store it in a safe place to avoid using it further, till you recover lost files.
