About

Hello and welcome to Digital Camera Recovery. My name is Helen and I'm on a mission to give you useful technology tips about photography and cameras.

DCR was established in 2012 with the goal to provide tools and tips to help photographers recover deleted, lost, or inaccessible pictures. I was frustrated seeing many photography sites fail to provide such information to their readers. After all, the camera data (photos, videos, etc.) means the world to us and we can't afford to lose it.

I wanted to DCR to be different and we made a commitment to make sure our technological advice can be followed by photographers of all skill levels, and allows you be confident tackling digital technology challenges.

My Story

A native, I grew up in San Francisco Bay Area. As much as I've been immersed in technology and entrepreneurship, I've also loved photography. I enjoy hiding behind my camera lens to escape the rest of the world.

Over the past decade, I've used many types of cameras from low-end compact cameras to the high-end professional DSLRs. I love playing around with different cameras. One of my dreams is to turn my house into a small camera museum, displaying antique and modern cameras.

Why This Website

The motivation of setting up this website came from several experiences helping friends recover lost photos. Some accidentally deleted the pics by mistake, Others lost data due to a memory card crash. Though I managed to recover most of their "almost lost" photographs, the process was not always smooth. And I often found that people didn't backup their data.

I felt that there could be others suffering similar situations. Therefore, I decided to start this site. Like I said, the initial goal was to offer a list of photo recovery/repair tools. Later I invited some photographers to contribute related tips and tricks, hoping the knowledge would help people be more confident in dealing with digital technology.

If you'd like to get in touch with me or anyone on our team, please contact us.

I wish you all the best on your photographic journey. Remember to take good care of your cameras.
