Recovered shots from my Digital Harinezumi

Harinezumi shots

I snapped a shot and somebody on 6th street didn’t like it, so I deleted it… and, by accident, all the other photos I had taken over the last week. The combination of button presses for “formatting” is surprisingly similar to “deleting” on a Zumi. Thanks to some folks on Twitter I learned that I may be able to retrieve some of the shots through special data recovery software… these are some of the shots I saved.

A couple notes:
1. for some reason, all of these recovery programs are $80 for Mac or $45-60 for PC. I guess they figure they can charge whatever they want… and Mac users have more money?
2. if you do accidentally format a disk, DON’T USE IT. Each new piece of data runs the risk of overwriting old data.
3. I’m gonna be honest, I wasn’t about to drop $80 for some software without knowing if it would work or not… so if you were looking to pirate a copy, that’s an option you shouldn’t have trouble with.
4. My first result didn’t turn up any of my lost images, but then I found an advanced feature to look specifically for photos… and that gave me way more than I had expected! Seriously, like month’s of photos.
5. This may not be for everyone, but I got some cool glitch results from the data retrieval process, like these guys:

    The Harinezumi, (referencing a v.2), glitches are caused by using a bigger then 2Gb card. I filmed and entire movie, using a 4gb card and it glitches out like crazy. It’s not without it’s charms, though.

    Whoa, really? Is the video online?
    I’m going to have to try intentionally glitching with larger memory cards. Another fun (but hard) trick is to delete the images, shoot some more, then use a file restoration program to try to restore the previous images.

    Sure, this whole dorky film was done on the harinezumi 2, and glitches like mad; https://vimeo.com/15085428
