3 Steps to Retrieve Images from Olympus Camera RRS feed

  • Question

  • As is well known, Olympus cameras are spread all over the world. Just a few days ago, Olympus released X-560WP, which has good water-proof ability, high ISO and shutter speed. It decreases the possibilities of image fog and provides as many as 18 shooting scenes, including figures, nightscape, landscape, movement, etc.

Image loss is a common problem we might meet when we are taking photos. Sometimes it is because of our carelessness, such as accidentally deleting or formatting, while sometimes it is because of unpredictable factors, like power off, virus infection, or the sudden failure of card. But how can we retrieve images from Olympus camera?

Before the lost images are retrieved from Olympus camera, you should remember: Do put the Olympus camera in safe place, do not take more images, and do not put more files or other data in the same place where the lost images were stored.

So once you put other data in it, this free space will be overwritten, which makes it difficult to retrieve lost images from Olympus camera.
