Recover Lost Raw NEF & Jpeg Photo Files from Nikon D3200 DSLR Camera

If you aspire to become a professional photographer, you need to hone your shooting skills with a DSLR camera. The best way to go about is to buy one that is good as well as affordable. Nikon’s D3200 DSLR can fit your needs perfectly. It comes equipped with features that can help turn your amateur skill into budding art. However, like any other camera, images captured by your Nikon D3200 can disappear from the device due to technical glitches. Memory card corruption is one such common glitch. You can never really know when your flash memory would let you down. When it does, the immediate question that arises is ‘how do I recover my NEF images’? Do not panic, because there are ways by which you can recover your lost raw (nef) and jpeg photo files.

Nikon D3200 is an entry level DSLR camera and comes with a 24MP CMOS sensor. The crowing feature, however, is the infrared remote with back and front sensors and optional Wi-Fi transmitter, to help you transmit images to tablets or smart phones running with Nikon apps.  It comes equipped with one SD card slot for SD, SDHC or SDXC cards.

If you do not take care to handle your camera well, your memory card might get corrupt. Even branded memory cards like Kingston SDXC card or Transcend SDHC card get corrupt when handled improperly. For instance, if you turn-off your camera before the image is completely written onto the card, or abruptly eject the card while the image file transfer is on to a PC, or use a card that has not been formatted in D3200, you end up damaging the memory card and your precious picture files.

Recovering raw (nef) and jpg picture files is simple and easy. Photo recovery software can help you achieve this in minutes, if not in seconds. To retrieve your lost image files, download the software to your PC. Get your D3200 DSLR camera connected to the comp and select it for scanning. Click on the Recover Lost Photo option, to take you to the next option — Recover Deleted Photos or Recover Lost Photos. Select the second option. It further asks you to select the drive or partition. Select the drive and click on the “Next” button to initiate the scan. You are just minutes away, from getting your snaps back.

Be very careful while working with your D3200 DSLR camera, else you may end up damaging your memory card. Keep the following tips in mind:

  • Do not turn off the camera before the writing process gets over.
  • Do not pull out the memory card while the writing process is on.
  • Do not open, rename, or delete files on the card when the camera is connected to a computer.
  • Do not use a card that has not been formatted in the same camera.
  • Do not insert a second memory card into a card reader before removing the first.
  • Do not take photos when camera batteries are nearly empty.
  • Ensure the memory card does not get too full before you download the files to a computer.
