Accidental Formatting of Cards
I have learnt the hard way to never leave your camera’s menu on FORMAT DISC after you have just formatted a disc. ALWAYS move it to something else once you have formatted a disc.
I ALWAYS carry my Canon 50D with the strap around my neck. This means that the back of the camera is up against your body. VERY easily your camera makes contact with your Menu button, and if the menu has been left on FORMAT DISC, it can easily format you disc for you without you even knowing it.
I know that you can recover images off a disc that has been formatted …. but my shattered nerves say RATHER BE SAFE THAN SORRY!!
