There’s a lot to be said for cameras with dual card slots; Unfortunately my Canon 5D Mk I isn’t one of them! Yesterday we spent the day taking photos at Swanage (in the UK). When I checked my images this morning the card was almost entirely corrupt. After running a recovery tool (Camera Salvage) I got a few back, but for the most part they are very similar to the one below.
I’ve just tried a series of 80 test shots with the same camera and CF card and they are all fine. So, it’s left me in a bit of a quandary now about whether I have a problem with the camera, card or whether it was just a one off glitch. Technology eh?!
