Photographers are tehnomany. We like to keep abreast of technological advances and know what kind of photo equipment will bring optimal results. In addition, I also like the technical side of photography process, but with all of it surprises me how some photographers simply not well-versed in dealing with the memory card (memory stick).
How I restored the image on a flash drive after a crash CF read here .
Tip # 1
Do not listen to the photographers who taught that the brand does not matter or Sandisk and Lexar same. It is simply not true. For example, Sandisk, when developing their products closely cooperates with the Nikon th in order to fully realize the potential of the camera. Nikon and Sandisk with USB flash drive developed for Nikon D90 and have done a long time, too, with Nikon D7000 . Lexar has its advantages
Tip # 2:
I sometimes hear from the professional photographers that super high-speed USB flash drive is only needed for shooting the video HD. This is certainly true, but RAW file create a greater flow of data when a lot of staff survey. Fast memory cards are more important than the photographer videograph.
Tip # 3:
Do not delete photos from the card. Always format the card. Typically, the camera allows pictures like «delete all photos» and «format a memory card.» Select the «Format» to avoid write errors. Formatting a memory card, shaking up the folder structure and prevent database errors.
Tip # 4:
While we diskussiruem on how to erase all of our pictures, never remove the pictures from a flash drive when using a computer. This will crush the database and can lead to large errors than erasing pictures from the camera. Erasing pictures with flash with the help of a computer such as Canon owners may fail ERR-99.
Tip # 5:
Because I am correct FORMAT your flash drive and will never edit files on the memory card through the computer, I never had problems with flash. Despite this, I broke a few flash drives because of not properly stored and retrieved from the card reader. It basically refers to the SD card, as they are just a small piece of plastic that can easily break. Treat them like newborn babies.
Tip # 6:
As for the Lexar, then using a high-capacious memory card to spend more battery on your camera. The costs of energy to the battery is not great, but I think no harm will have it in mind.
Tip # 7:
Both Lexar and Sandisk brand produce flash cards a professional level with free software that can recover your photos from your card if you do not chaenno delete them. If you erase the photos you want, stop taking pictures on the card, at home, try to restore the image using the program, photo recovery, you can also try to recover photos after formatting. I have not tried the program from Sandisk, but the program of recovery from Lexar is beyond praise.
Tip # 8:
If you are using Lexar memory card you have problems you can send a representative to the Lexar and they will try to recover your data free of charge and returned to you on DVD. As far as I know Sandisk does not offer such a service to customers Memory Card Sandisk.
Tip # 9:
I confess that last piece of advice has little to do directly from memory cards, but I advise you to subscribe to the blog of Jeff Cable. He is one of the advertisers in the Lexar and always shares interesting than in his blog. Here is a link to it http://jeffcable.blogspot.com/ .
