Card or camera problem

Taken with K1 II. I'm hoping it is a bad card but I still have time to send the camera back. Switched cards but not had time for more photos but one, it was ok

Could be a transfer to the computer problem too.

I think you might be right since it showed up ok on the lcd.

You can always try a different USB port, copy instead of moving until you've got it figured out so you don't lose photos.

To bad I deleted the files from the card. If not I would try one of my card readers.

Re: Card or camera problem

If you can read it off the card in camera (Play)  it is not either of them that is the problem

Re: Card or camera problem

I had this same issue and it ended up being a bad card reader.

I normally use the card reader in the computer, but if it happens again I will try an external card reader.

Just let me know if you want me to try fix these photo's (if they're JPEGs).

Edit: Oops, contains restart markers, my repair tool does not support those yet ...

Re: Card or camera problem

Okay. Due to my curious nature I had a go at it anyway..

Re: Card or camera problem

Thanks Dean!

I cheated a bit on this one, cut off lower 5% or so because there were alignment errors.

For the rest, basic method using free tools is:

Get JpegSnoop > Have it process the image and look for lines where it reports invalid markers. Copy the byte address and view in hex editor (I used HxD).

Basic rule is that FF is an important value in JPEGs, it means a marker follows. Next byte defines what marker, and if this is a nonsense value JPEG decoders will choke. That's why this image is cut off,  or grey for a large portion, the decoder is simply giving up.

Actual image data in a JPEG starts after FF DA. After that you should not see FF unless followed by 00.

Unless the image contains restart markers (FF Dx where x = 0 to 7).

So any FF followed by a value that's not 00 or FF Dx (where x = 0 to 7) I changed to FF 00.

In a basic JPEG (no restart markers) you will then get color and alignment errors that affect the rest of the image.

Advantage of restart markers is that corruption remains limited to area in between two restart markers. Which was the case with this JPEG and I simply clone-stamped that area using Paint.NET

So, for this one I only used free stuff and anyone can do it.

That's the worst one and I guess it shows not a camera problem but most likely a computer problem, thanks

Re: Card or camera problem

Would it be okay for me to use this photo to compile a tutorial and a video maybe?

Re: Card or camera problem

Yeah, in my experience these are what I call 'transfer/transport problems'. Somewhere at some point a couple of bits got flipped during writing, storing, transfer etc. of data.

If you take into account all the different protocols and hardware from taking an image to storing it on your hard drive it's a miracle that it works most of the time.
