Don't read and believe so much of those wedding sues happening in the western world. They exaggerate to claim higher.
Studio photographers do not shoot RAW, they only shoot in JPEG, the average sized ones. About 400-800kb/file. On a 16GB card, it can easily go a long way. We'll do it the logical arithmetic way.
1 file assume 1MB.
2GB = 2,000 MB
4GB = 4,000 MB
8GB = 8,000 MB
16GB = 16,000 MB (don't blast me, I'm aware 1MB = 1024x1024)
Theoretically, you can get 2,000 shots in a 2GB card already. Why need to change card?
ask yourself, making such demand is it sensible and practical or not?
I eats, shoots & leaves
Get all the card and try recovery software. It's better to recover some photos.
Think of concepts and work towards it.
Perhaps bro manwearpants is trying to direct TS to other possible methods of data recovery? :OOriginally Posted by catchlights
I think I am spending too much time in the forum that every topic seems to be connected in some way.
I should not have quoted the thread, my apologies.
Hope TS manage to resolve the issue.
I'd say any proper photographer DOES shoot in RAW.... exception being is press n some sports photographers where speed of capture then transfer to the tabloids / news media is vital.
Their are GOOD REASONS why pro cameras take TWO Memory Cards > it serves as a redundant back up ! ( for me : I do RAW on one and JPEG fine on the other... cheap insurance )
REALLY SORRY to hear about the wedding !
D800 : FX 16, 24 , 50 1.2, 85, 24-70VR, 70-200 / Zeiss 21, 35, 100, 135 / ART 50 .
most people don't believe is because they have no ideal how the way they work.
Threadstarter, you can pm me if you need help to recover the photos. FOC if you are wondering
Not necessary, at least my bridal studio for my pre-wedding isn't. Pre-wedding in Jpeg too.Originally Posted by daredevil123
In studio situ where control of light is available it is ok to shoot JPEG. Sunny outdoors JPEG is also ok especially if they shoot at optimum ISO or if they shoot underexposed a bit to save the highlights, anyway end of the day its someone else doing the digital imaging. The photoshop girl got a library of blue sky and white clouds to super impose into it. Or just make it orange like sunset (though it look more like sunkiss orange juice splashed on white paper) Plasticky skin and falsely enhanced face shape and body figure is the norm too. Underexposed picture still can sell at $95 per pic because the salegirls is good in convincing the couple it is art.
As mentioned, its a different business model. Whatever floats the boat.
