Have you checked file extensions? You might have your camera set in the RAW+JPEG storing mode, producing both .JPG and .NEF file for each shot, showing the same thumbnail for both of them. Also many image viewers would show both of them. Solution: Turn off RAW+JPEG mode and use JPEG only mode. Check page 85 of the Nikon D7000 manual - Image Recording ...

I have no idea why someone would recommend this. I suspect it is just superstition. There generally isn't anything important or useful to you outside of the DCIM folder, and you certainly don't get any benefit in copying that folder vs. copying its contents — your computer does the exact same thing either way. Canon's MISC folder is explained at What is ...

In general the top tier Compact Flash cards available to the typical consumer via retail channels when compared to the top tier Secure Digital cards available to the typical consumer via retail channels are: More rigid and less susceptible to damage from flexing Rated for more extreme environmental conditions (higher altitude, lower temperature, etc.) Have ...

A micro SD to SD card adapter is a passive device, i.e. it does nothing but provide a set of contact points bridging those on the micro SD card and those on the SD slot. That being the case, it should pretty much either work or not work, but won't impact performance... unless you find one of such low quality that the contacts fail to accomplish their simple ...

It is possible and has been done before but AFAIK not by Leica. Pentax and Canon both did it early on as SDXC was introduced. This added support for large card sizes and also the exFAT file system.

Just solved the issue by chance - I used exfatlabel to name my card and voilá it was auto-detected and works fine under Linux and in my 6d:)

The misc folder is for storing in camera data for everything other than the image data itself. IE, thumb nail metadata, temporary data and if you are printing directly from the camera, it stores the DPOF data( digital print order format). I personally don't need to copy this info, so I import just the images in Lightroom.

I have a K-3 with both the "FLUCARD PRO 16 GB O-FC1" and a "SanDisk Extreme" Class 10 80MB/s 32 GB. The SanDisk stores images about twice as fast as my FluCard. I've figured this with the following test: Erase the memory cards. Set the K-3 to manual exposure, 1/500th, Motor Drive H (9 shots/s). Hold down the shutter for as long as the camera takes ...

All flash memory systems have their physical enclosure and 2 electronic systems - a controller and flash memory to determine reliability. Electronics Electronically there is no discernible difference because the storage side of flash memory (NAND) is the same across all the types (CF, SD, etc.) NAND at the chip level has a serial interface and relies on ...

There's no way to assign a date-based filename on-camera. However, there are quite a few pieces of software that will help do just this when ingesting photos from the memory card to your computer, giving you the ability to define your preferred file name, folder structure, and assorted metadata, too, such as Adobe Lightroom and Camera Bits Photo Mechanic.

Here are some suggestions as to how to approach your problem: Clean out the contacts within the card slot, if dirty — This can be done using compressed air, or very gentle work with pliers or q-tips with some cleaning alcohol based detergent Try smaller and/or slower sd-cards — sd-cards comes in different classes/sizes, your camera might have difficulties ...

Assuming you're talking about an SD card, there's a possibility with some cards with very easily shifted write-protect tabs to get shifted into read-only position upon insertion into certain readers, and shifted back upon removal, by any slight friction. I've had this happen a couple of times, and it seems like kind of a perverse design to me (I've actually ...

It's most probable that the card has simply failed. Another likely possibility is that the contacts inside the camera need to be cleaned. The first diagnostic step is to try another card, and if possible, to also try the card you have in another camera. If the card doesn't work in another camera, and if another card works just fine in your main one, don't ...

I know that when you repeatedly remove/insert an SD card it can leave "lines" on the gold contacts of the SD card itself but I haven't had any issue with it for over a year (if I'm understanding what you're saying.) Not all SD cards do this and if you're curious check this post out. As for the camera messing up the card itself, do you have any other SD Card ...

All I know is that Nikons seem to be very sensitive when it comes to memory cards.My D810 won't accept anything other than an at least a "6" rated full size SD card. It won't accept micro sd's in a converter no matter what!

Is there a sensor in there that I may have damaged and this is giving the false reading? There is a contact switch in the SD card socket that detects the presence of a seated card. This switch is part of the SD card socket assembly. It is possible that some of the debris plastic has become lodged behind the switch, preventing the switch from moving when ...

Should be firmware because in terms of hardware they are physically the same. That of course doesn't mean that a company will ever actually release the needed update. As an aside, I teach photography and am a professional artist and would suggest that for almost all uses, SDXC cards aren't a good idea (time-lapse being the possible exception). The problem ...

There is, apparently, a python Eyefi server that you can run on your NAS, which allows you to use an older eyefi card in the way you describe. (The current Mobi cards can only do ad hoc networking). See: http://thijs.elenbaas.net/2013/03/installing-an-eye-fi-server-on-a-synology-nas/

You can use an USB hub on your tablet, I have a similar setup with my (rooted) Nexus 7 to read different USB key and it works. However, you may have power issues if you are using a hard drive. The power output of your tablet is probably about 500mA. Check the consumption of your HDD. If it's higher or close to 500mA, you will have to use some external power ...

Yup! I can answer this one... put the card into your computer and manually erase all the data on it. When a canon 60d or 70d can't read data on the card (like it was used in another camera), it will say the card is locked because it doesn't want you to overwrite the data.

The lock switch on an SD card is a simple physical mechanism. The card reader feels for a gap where the lock switch should be, and if it feels a gap it write-protects, but if the tab is there it enables write. (If the lock switch breaks off, you can put masking tape where it used to be, in order to be able to write to the card. It's basically the same ...

If you're ok with Dropbox, Using the automatic import function will rename all of your files to the datetime taken. My process is: 1) Plug SD card into computer (in my case it's an iMac) 2) Let dropbox do the automatic import 3) Have hazel automatically file into my Pictures folder with the structure Year/Month/Day Taken 4) In Lightroom, I use the ...

As per camera (EOS REBEL T2i/EOS 550D/Kiss X4 Digital) manual the size of recorded video is 330 MB/min which mean 32GB card will be OK for you. But be aware videorecording will stop automatically after 29 minutes 59 seconds. Of course you can start it after this to shoot another ~30 minutes The mentioned speed of 30MB/s is read speed and write speed is ...
