I took over 100 photos over the weekend, when I went to look at them either through the app or laptop only the last 20 photos were on the camera the rest had gone.

Is there any way of getting them back or what have I done for this to happen.

I have a sandisk ultra 128gb SDX Memory card.

Have you tried removing the sd card from the camera, putting it in a card reader and using the computer’s operating system tools to look in the card and see what is on it?

Does the camera let you see them when you scroll around in playback mode?

There are several recovery programs (apps) specially built for retrieving lost images from cards. You might have even been given a coupon or flier for one when you bought the card.

I think option one is the best approach, i.e. put the card in a reader and let the os tell you what is on it. On a Mac, the card appears as a drive, double click on it to open and you should find some folders inside. Open those and see what you find. The raw files have a .RAF filename ending and the jpeg files end in .JPG, so you can copy these over to your computer and go from there. Linux and Windows do something very similar. Of course, if you are used to command line versions, then go that route, the sd card is handled the same as any other drive.

Since your card is made by Sandisk:


You will need to put your card in a card reader attached to your computer, so you might as well try option one first.

    • Interesting question - I don't have an X-T200 to test but I'd suggest you try setting the camera so that its writing a jpg only - so that you could be sure it would write to the card in under 2 seconds - if you get the same problem it would imply its something other than the buffer.
    • Welcome to our forum. I‘ve removed your personal e-mail address from your comment to prevent spam etc. Concerning your question, it‘s unlikely that the buffer of the X-T200 can hold 50+ photos. There must be another reason for the behavior and I supect something like reorganizing data on the card and/or creating new folders. 
    • Thanks. As it turns out I list some stuff for sale once at a very similarly named forum.... 
    • Hello Everyone. I am a total newbee so I apologize up front if i violate and etiquette. Here is my question. Symptom: I have a controller that operates the shutter on my Fuji X-T200 camera so that it takes a picture every 2 seconds in sync with other events. After about 50 +- pictures are taken, a red dot comes on the camera display and it wont take another picture, until it finishes counting down from 5-7 seconds and it is now out of sync with what I have been doing by 1-2 events. The memory card I use is a SanDisk Extreme Pro 170 MB/s 128GB.   Questions: Q1. My first guess is that it is a buffer filling up and then flushing to my SD memory card. Is this correct?   Q2. Is there a way to configure the settings in my camera so it won’t buffer? But will store the picture to the SD immediately after its taken.   Q3. Will a faster memory SD card speed up the process? ( I think probably not as it is probably the buffer memory speed of the camera that is the limiting factor.)   Q4. The best solution is if I can find a signal or some sort, electrical, relay contact, blue-tooth or wireless, that tells me the camera is ready to take a (the next) picture.   Thank you so much, Sincerely, Jim Towne
