The Canon Powershot G11 camera is a fantastic compact camera, and has all the good stuff from its predecessors. Canon has continuously been improving and adding on features to their G-series, and many will agree that this is their best camera to date. It is a very reliable camera, it takes great pictures, and can save a lot of photos at a time. One of the problems though is that, you cannot easily replace the battery when it is close to running out. This can pose a problem when you are trying to take photos and it is in low battery mode. The photos may not appear on the memory card.
When you notice that photos are missing from your Canon G11, stop using it immediately. You may still be able to retrieve photos, and you want definitely want to prevent from permanently deleting them. This can happen if you are still taking pictures even after you have noticed that some photos are missing.
When you get home, or can already upload the photos in your computer, try using a card reader. You will have a better chance at retrieving lost photos with a memory card reader. You might already be able to view the photos on your computer, and they may already contain the photos that you thought were lost. However, if you still cannot see the photos, consider using a photo recovery software to retrieve them.
I recommend that you use Photo Retrieval 1.70, but you can also use photo recovery software such as Disk Doctors or Wondershare. Most of these photo recovery software can be used on either PC or Mac computers, so you shouldn’t have a problem accessing these software.
Let the software scan your memory card, while it is attached to your computer. You will then be able to see the photos that were lost before.
