Digital photography produces nice photos that's why more and more people like it. However, any photographer may experience this: accidentally deleted pictures from digital camera, or hit format button by mistake and formatted digtal camera memory card, hence lost all photos. So a common question is that am I able to recover deleted or formatted photos from digital camera? The answer is that it is possible to recover deleted or formatted photos off digital camera sd card.

What happens when photos are deleted or digital camera memory card is formatted?
When you deleted the photos from digital camera memory card, the photo itself is not deleted, instead, system will only mark the space
as free so that when new picture is taken, the space can be used to save the new picture.
When you format digital camera sd card, the photos are not erased either, instead, the whole memory card is marked as free so that new pictures can be saved there.
So you can unerase the camera memory card and restore lost data. Also, it is very important to NOT take any more pictures after the incident. Because new pictures may overwrite the space
of deleted photos, which will make them unrecoverable.
Digital Camera does not have a build-in Recycle Bin (mainly because of limited storage size). So there is no way to recover photos from
Recycle Bin as what we did on computers. Photos deleted from digital camera also does not go to computer Recycle Bin even you deleted them when camera is
connected to computer.
