Your pictures are probably fine. The camera 'format' is for the internal memory, which is separate from the SD memory card. Take the card to Walmart and put it in the card reader and you should see your pics!

Sir there is only a 50% probability to get your pictures from a formatted memory card.
The only option we have here is to use an "UNFORMAT" or "UNDELETE" programs.
If you have not taken any new pictures after formatting your card then the chances are high.

Solution is to connect your memory card to your computer through a memory card reader (you can also directly connect your camera to your computer if a new drive is displayed in "my computer). Note the drive letter of the memory card (like E: or G: etc). Download this file (CLICK HERE) and run it. From the left hand pan select the drive letter of the memory card and click scan. Recovered files (if any) will be displayed in the right pan. Backup these files to your hard drive.
I hope this works for you.
If not you may need to use UNFORMAT available here.

Regards,
Waqar

    Sir if you have taken more pictures then i am afraid it wont be possible to recover your old pictures but if you want you can take it to Best Buy.

    You can also buy a small memory card reader to connect the memory card to your pc (it wont cost you alot). i can tell you where to buy a memory card reader if you mention which type of memory card you use with your camera.

    Sir i think you should try atleast once. Now its up to you if you want to


    1. Go to Best Buy

    2. Buy a memory card reader (From here)

    3. Buy a data cable for your camera
    Well the possibility of this type of recovery can never be guessed for sure sir. It depends on a lot of things like the number of pictures taken after this loss, number of times you switched on your camera etc

    In my opinion you should try once and try the unformat or undelete procedure i mentioned earlier.

    And no problem sir, I am here to help

    Regards,
    Waqar

Hi there, Not might be a good news but unfortnately when you format a memory, all data in it would be erased and won't be recovered anymore.

    Hi there,



    Just save all the pictures that are currently on you memory card now. There are two ways to do that. You may pull out the memory card then read it directly to you PC if it has a memory card reader. If none, then connect your camera to the computer using the USB cable. Note: eitherway, you can already see here all the pictures saved to your memory card. From here, you will already have the idea, if the pictures that you want to see were already deleted/erased or not.

Why cant I take photos


Go down the menu until you find the section that lets you format the SD card. This will create the files needed to store photos on this brand of camera. The SD card has no way of knowing what device it will be used in so the format sets that up so the camera can use the "drive" for storage. This is a one time only format. Do not ever format a card until you have multiple backups of what was saved on that card. After backing those up onto an external drive or computer or flash drive, verify the information is readable and the videos/photos appear on screen. This is a great time to create a folder describing the events and rename the pictures so you can find them easily in three or four years.

On some cameras, once you use the internal memory, you must format it and completely erase it before a regular memory card will work. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen instructions. Then, never use the internal memory again.

I'm having a couple problems with my Nikon D90 and for the life of me that manual is too confusing, The first problem I'm having is.... I'm taking pictures at my sons wrestling events and I can't get it...


I imagine your son's wrestling events are held in school gyms with lighting that is less than ideal. If you are taking pictures without a flash then the blurriness you describe could well be due to a slow shutter speed. Your camera is using a slower shutter speed to gather enough light, but your subjects are moving fast enough to cause motion blur in the picture. Either you increase the aperture (larger aperture = smaller f number), increase the ISO number (equivalent to film speed), or you use a flash. If you do use a flash, the built-in pop-up flash is only useful for close shots probably no more than 15 feet away or so. A speedlight flash, such as the Nikon SB-400, Sb-600, SB-700 or SB-900 will project the light much farther.

If you set your ISO manually to 1250 or 1600 and put your D90 on shutter-priority (the "S" on the left dial) then you can use the right rear dial to set your shutter speed and the camera will set the aperture for you. To stop the action you will likely need at least 1/125 or 1/160 of a second. Go as high (fast) as you can--the limit will be your lens. The standard "kit" lenses are mostly F5.6 as the biggest aperture, and that is limiting without a flash or daylight. You might also try a monopod--a one-legged stand--to help steady your camera for you.

F33 and a [r05] what does this mean


There is probably nothing wrong with your camera. See below. .. **An important event like the birth of a baby is *not* the time to start using a camera you do not understand. Complicated cameras do not take better pictures. You would be far better to borrow a simple point and shoot camera so you can concentrate on taking pictures you will treasure instead of worrying about settings on a camera you have "no idea how to use". This may not be what you want to hear, but you will thank me if you follow my advice!** .. If you don't have access to any other camera...
Learn to use your D70 when there is no pressure. Did you get a manual with the camera, or do you know the person you got it from? If you can answer yes to either of these, then that is where to start. There should be a quick start guide with the camera too. .. To answer your questions:
  • F33 and [r05] don't tell us anything about your camera's state or ability to take a picture. They are certainly not error messages.
  • F33 is the lens aperture (i.e. how wide the circular hole is to let light in) - F33 is very small. We'll go back to settings.
  • [r05] means you can take 5 pictures in a row before the camera needs to pause to clear the buffer. You should only see this when you half press the shutter release button. Ignore it.
  • If your camera is working correctly and you have a memory card in it, you will see how many pictures you can shoot until the card is full in the same place you saw [r05].
  • If you see [73] you can take 73 more pictures on that card (with your current settings), if you see [-E-] there is no memory card in the camera and if you see [Full]... you guessed it, the card is full.
  • Sometimes the camera just gets a bit confused and you need to turn it off, remove and replace the card and turn it on again.
Do this:
  1. Turn the camera on and slightly press, then release the shutter. If the screen on the back is showing anything, you pressed too hard. Wait for the screen to clear...
  2. On the back is a vertical row of buttons beside the screen, press and hold the bottom one (marked  ENTER).
  3. While you are still holding the button in, rotate the dial on the back (top right) with your right thumb...
  4. You will see the words in the bottom left of the top screen change  through RAW, Fine, etc etc. Stop when it says Fine.
  5. Still holding the back button in (see step 2), rotate the front dial (beneath the shutter release button) with you right forefinger until you see and L in the small box next to the word Fine.
  6. You are now set up to take nice quality pictures that don't use up too much room on your memory card. How many can you take? By changing the picture quality from Fine to Norm (step 4) and the image size from Large to Medium (step 5) to will be able to take more pictures.
  7. If you see [full] or you a low number, you should go and get another memory card. 512MB or 1GB are easily big enough and cost peanuts. Turn the camera off before removing or inserting cards.
  8. If you see the word "For" flashing when you insert a new card, it needs to be formatted by the camera. This will erase everything on the card. Make sure it is a blank card and press the two buttons marked "Format" simultaneously for 3 seconds. The top panel will flash. Press the two buttons again to format the card or press anything else to cancel.
  9. With a card in and the camera turned on, rotate the top dial on the left hand end on the camera until the green icon and the word "Auto" are lined up with the white line. In this mode, the camera does everything for you except take the lens cap off, frame the picture and release the shutter.
  10. Take the lens cap off, frame the picture you want and press the the shutter release.
Enjoy

Nikon D40 shutter speed problem


The D40 will not take great photos of an indoor event without blurring or noise. You need a fast lens and a high ISO using the popup flash or on camera flash would be ideal but some of these events you can not use flash. All these images I shot with a Nikon D40. http://www.facebook.com/home.php?src=fftb#/pages/Keller-TX/Raving-Design/78762448229?v=photos&ref=ts Learn to use the camera for ur events.

Not taking pictures


The sensor sounds bad. The communication seems to have a too long of a delay. Meaning it is not snapping the shot as soon as the sensor goes off.
