Question about Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I think my Powershot deleted my photos to make room for videos!

After I downloaded everything, I noticed there were a LOT of videos. Then I realized most of my still photos were missing. Should I buy a recovery program? Help!

    Hi there and welcome to FixYa.

    First a couple of questions.

    1) Can you play the videos in your computer?

    2) Are there any of those "video" files that you know were pictures?

You may find your still pics were downloaded to a different folder than your videos, on you PC. Do a Start/Search Files and Folders and begin to enter first chars of pic file number.

Else go to Documents/ Pictures

How to recover deleted photos from Powershot A3500 IS

First, don't use the card again until you recover! Piriform's Recuva is a free photo recovery program that will allow you to recover images and data from your cards and devices. They're the same people that make CCleaner and are pretty reputable. I don't endorse them here, I've just successfully used their software in the past.

All pictures deleted from camera while on a plane can this be recovered?

Yes this can. Very easily also. See this link. Just remember when recovering to save your recovered photos onto your hard drive, and not back onto your memory card as that may overwrite lost photos prior to recovery.

Canon powershot SD1000 video playback problems

Unfortunately, no. Time-lapse video works by taking fewer frames and then displaying them at normal speed so as to give the impression of time going by faster than in reality. Thus, the camera simply hasn't recorded all the information it would have in normal mode, and there's no way to recreate that information. Think of reading just the first line of every page of a book: you'd get through it quickly, but you'd also miss some things.

Now, if you'd shot in slow-motion, then you could throw out some frames until you got to normal speed.

I was taking pictures and I had looked at them and when I got home they are missing off my camera what can i do to recover this pictures

In this case you may try some photo recovery software to recover these pictures, here are some programs you may rely on. Both programs can also recover videos and music.
Photo Recovery Software (for Windows)
Mac Photo Recovery Software (for Mac OS X)

Note: Before your pictures are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the camera memory card in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.

Does "formating memory card" means it deletes everything???....

Yes, when you format a memory card, it erases all its data. Nowadays many companies/manuals don't bother mentioning that, unfortunately :(
