There is a new breed of cameras in the market nowadays. These are called mirrorless cameras. Nikon J1 is one of the most popular mirrorless cameras. J1 has a modern and minimalist design and it can capture picture in up to 10.1 mega pixels with a sensor size of 13.2*8.8mm which is considerably like Sony Nex-5K. In addition, J1 is geared toward ease of use, for some users even don’t need to read the reviewer’s guide before shooting with the camera. However, this camera is not flawless, as it is still prone to data loss. I once read a post which describes a man carelessly pressed the “Delete All” button while transferring photos from his Nikon 1 camera to a Mac computer. What a tragedy if those photos are important to him! Fortunately, if this has happened to you, most of the time, the deleted photos can be recovered. In the following, I’ll show you how to make deleted photo recovery come true.
Stop using camera and take out the memory card.
Right after you realized you have deleted photos from your camera, please immediately power off the camera and remove the memory card so that you still have a chance of recovering your lost photos. Otherwise, you may risk yourself from permanently losing your photos if you continue taking pictures.
Connect the memory card to a Mac-based computer.
It should be noted here that you’d better not use your camera to connect its memory card to your computer. Instead, get a card reader and then connect the memory card with computer through the reader.
Run a photo recovery software on Mac.
For now, you need to pick up a professional photo recovery software application to help you successfully and safely get back the deleted photos. Here I recommend Tenorshare Photo Recovery for Mac which is also freely downloadable through the Internet. After downloading it, please install it into Mac.
Recover deleted photos with Tenorshare Photo Recovery for Mac.
When the software runs, please choose the target device which represents your Nikon 1J1 camera first on the main interface of Tenorshare Photo Recovery for Mac. Then select the file type “Photo” to be recovered and then click “Start Scan” to let the tool quickly search for the deleted photos from your camera. In the end, you are allowed to preview the photos found before Mac photo recovery. Then once you confirm which photos you are ready to recover, simply press the “Recover” button.
