I have a Nikon D70 and i am a photographer I shot a customers photos today.

File error Hi After taking about 20 photos, I went back to view them & the last 6 had disappeared showing only a blue screen & file error on the display.

Lost pictures I had about 103 photos taken and there was no sign that my card was full or anything. I was taking a photo and then all the photos were gone. All it said was no images. I can not find them anywhere. I know I did not delete the photos. Can I retrive them from anywhere or are they just gone?

Was downloading priceless photos of 40th High School reunion from my Nikon D70s to laptop and something went haywire. Did not download photos, but seems to have erased files.

Disappearing photos I went on holiday to Belgium recently and halfway through the trip I went to look through the photos I'd taken to find that they had all vanished! Earlier in the day I had been flicking through the settings and I pressed the create folder option but I exited before making a new one (I think) but appart from that I can't think of anything that would have happened to it to make it delete all my photos.

I have a new (3 weeks) D700 and while taking photos yesterday with camera and a 16-35mm lens, the exposure meter went ape. Pictures taken ok but ERR started to flash where shutter speed reading should be displayed in viewfinder. Tried everything, including resetting to factory settings, detaching and reattaching lens, checking switches, and then went home in despair. At home I switched to a 50mm lens and the problem disappeared. I put the 16-35mm lens back and problem seemed to have disappeared.

Hi there. I have an Olympus E-510 that is about 3 years old. It's been working fabulous until just until recently. I connected the camera to my computer and downloaded some photos just like I always do with no problems - disconnecting it as I always do (USB). The next time I went to use the camera, the USB storage screen shows up and I can't get it to go back to the original setting to take photos. I can still download any images from the camera but can't get off that menu. I've tried the reset
