Sony A77 Mark II review (part 2)

Here’s a major bug that is very annoying: if you take a picture but press the shutter button too quickly, it causes a memory card corruption. You get a message that says “Writing to the memory card was not completed correctly. Recover data?” When you select Enter (yes) the camera asks: “Execute? This may damage data that was added or edited on another device.” Then you click enter and the camera proceeds to lose your file.

Sony, this needs to be fixed!

  1. Hi, I’m freaking out! This is coming up on my screen. I took a photo then took the memory card out & put it back in. If I press “ENTER” will I lose lose all the photos on my camera or just the last photo I took. I was just about to back them all up or should I press “CANCEL”??

    1. Pressing Enter or Cancel doesn’t seem to make a difference for me. We should all write to Sony or leave a comment on their forum. Maybe they will solve this with a firmware update.

      1. I got a techhead onto it. Selected “ENTER” not “CANCEL” All the images were present. I immediately uploaded them onto my PC.
        I agree with you. I pride myself on being fairly intelligent & I find the language & series of instructions very convoluted & discombobulating…English please not Technish 🙂
        Further, I searched everywhere in Sony support, Sony manuals, Sony forums and yours was the one that had any communication on this which only exacerbated the panic of potentially losing 2,000 photos & videos, which was grim.
