The world’s smallest full-frame system camera is a fine crafted imaging device that lives up to the 5 decades of continuous technical improvement. The leica m9 stores images on a sd card, if you accidentally deleted some of them, or have them lost due to certain reasons, don’t panic, take a breath, double check the folders you have them saved. Still nothing?
Stop what you are doing.
When a delete command is sent by leica m9, all it really does is mark the space on the sd card where deleted photos occupy as free space. The photos are still there, but the system is now perfectly happy to write new data on it - at which point the deleted photo recovery becomes a lot more difficult. That means you should avoid taking any more photos with the leica, every time you save a new photo – every time the os write information to the sd card, your chance of recovering the deleted photos goes down.
