Recovering Erased Images/Data from Your Memory

Losing images is perhaps one of the biggest, yet little-thought-about fears of many professional photographers and hobbyist shooters. Unfortunately, there are people out there that do not know how to recover images if they are lost. I talked to a few industry experts, asking them to share their knowledge about image recovery and software.

Seth Resnik, David H. Wells, Ziv Gillat (creator of the Eye-Fi card) and John Christopher of DriveSavers, Inc. all shared their insights with me.

Finding Gems Once Lost

In today's world of large-capacity memory cards, we tend to snap the shutter button more liberally than in generations previous. Our archives fill up quickly, and we forget about the images that we've shot. Upon registering for 500px.com, I read about their emphasis on including only your best work. Since it was a whole new start for me after having been on Flickr for a while, I booted up the external hard drives in a quest to find hidden gems.

Slimming Down Storage

Sometimes a picture says it all. That’s exactly the case with
’s new Z-series family of hard drives, just announced today. The new 2.5-inch hard drives contain just a single platter and measure only 7mm in height. That’s just a tiny bit more than ¼ inch, and looking at the picture you can immediately envision the super-slim notebooks, netbooks, and tablets that will surely come to market in the near future.
