Dear Photographers, I need your help.
If I weren’t feeling so emotionally numb these days (that’s another post), I would cry over this, but instead I am just begging for help.
A little background.
This is my camera. It’s practically a relic. It’s the Nikon D70. They don’t even make it any more. I’ve had it since 2003.
This is my memory card. It holds a lot of photos.
In fact, when my card is empty that “555” number says “1K” meaning that is how many photos I have remaining.
Although my camera tells me that my card only has room for 555 more photos which means I have taken about 500, my “playback” only shows me 35 of them. I am dying. Where are they?
What I think happened.
I shot a birth story recently. I needed to get the images to the new mom ASAP. I hooked up my camera to my MacBook Pro and using Bridge selected the 150-200 photos from the session. No other images were moved to the computer. I did not delete the birth story from my camera either.
I edited the photos, inserted a DVD into the drive on my computer to burn the images for the new mom WHILE my camera was still connected to the computer and turned on.
In my airheadedness, I selected MY CAMERA instead of the DVD icon in the Finder and moved the 150-200 newly edited birth story photos to my camera instead of the DVD. I only noticed because I couldn’t find the “Burn” button when I went to finish up the DVD.
The next day when I went to look at some photos on my camera, I couldn’t find anything before my airhead episode YET my camera shows that my card is not empty thus giving me hope that my photos are still on there somewhere.
Is there any way to access those photos?
Talk to me.
Like I said, if I had the emotional energy, I would be in tears about it. Help?
