Nightmare - Pictures Visible in Camera from SD but not on Mac

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

Sorry to meet you in such a moment of stress but here goes. Last night I shot an event, an important one. It's primarily what I do outside of studio.

This morning when I got home to upload the images and start editing I noticed about 30% (consecutive) of my shots were MIA. I uploaded what I could and put the card back in the camera (xpro2). There they were! Visible in camera. So I try a new card reader but the same 30% are missing. Then I tried directly connecting the camera with the card in it and still, they were missing on my computer. Then I tired switching card slots and trying everything again with no new results. At this point, I decided to restart my computer, make a cup of coffee and have a sit before I snap.

I return to my camera and start scrolling, the elusive 30% are now gone. Like really gone this time, nowhere to be found on the card, camera or floating in my now cold coffee. I'm baffled. 

Does anyone have any thoughts on how this happened? How I can prevent it in the future? And, with a glimmer of hope, how to find those shots?

 

 

Thanks

the SD card is a SanDisk 128GB Extreme PRO 95nb/s

You are possibly SOL. I have seen this on bad SD cards before. You've got to remember that what you're seeing on the camera's LCD is a subset of the image that was recorded. I think that to speed up the raster processing Canon, Nikon, Fuji, Sony, etc all keep a boiler plate version of the SD card in nRAM then just paste in the thumbnail version of the image(s). Due to the position of the thumbnail in the image file this works for a while but after repeated views of the card's contents the refresh erases the path string and hence the image data. If you've still got the Raw image data you are Holden, if not ... "that's life".

Once I had to use an undelete utility to get images. 

I have Sandisk cards and used their undelete software and it worked for most of the images.  In my case, it wasn't card error however, I had accidentally formatted the card with images on it I still needed.

 

Years ago when I shot Nikon I had a couple images on the CF card dedicated to RAW files get corrupt.  But on the 2nd card I had JPG copies and the JPG were OK.  When that happened I was convinced on the need for 2 card slots.

Hi,

the macOS cannot read compressed fuji raw files.

Change the camera setting to uncompressed and the raw files will be perfectly readable. (not the old ones)

Using compressed RAWs causes 30% of them to turn up missing?

    • Search your manual for "PRE-AF" option. If ON camera should focus without pressing release botton.
    • Thanks, Willtoride. It's beginning to make sense to me now. I guess I was really stressing the CPU.
    • Just got the new X-S10. I don't think you have a forum for the X-s10 yet. Hopefully this is the right place to post. I'm confused about how autofocus works. I'm sure it is similar on all X models. Before I bought, I watched tons of videos on youtube about the X-S10 and when they tested the autofocus, they would walk away or towards the camera so you could see the focus adjust. Now that I got the camera, I'm baffled. (1) AutoFocus doesn't seem to happen automatically but you have t
    • I have only been able to get the XWebcam and XWebcam2 to work on my Macbook Pro )mid 2012, Catalina) with QuickTime Player Capture video without controls of the XWebcam software and with XWebcam/XWebcam2.  I have been able to get it to work with Zoom only. Not FaceTime, not Skype, not Google Meeting. My old Logitech Webcam work with everything also.
    • 4k 60fps 400Mbps means you're using the H265 codec. It's very cpu/gpu intensive. My 2016 MBP struggles to play H265 smoothly but my main editing machine plays them back fine, so this could be the issue you're seeing. Try H264, which will limit you to 200Mbps or maybe create proxies.
