SX700 HS: photos not on SD card

Apologies for going off topic slightly but need help please.   My photos are being stored in the camera's

memory and I need urgently to get them on to my iMac.  Can anyone help with 1, ensuring further photos

go to the SD card and not the cameras memory and 2, how can I retrieve photos from the camera and

put on my iMac ?   Appreciate any input, thanks.

Regards

Toc

Hi, Tocmpost!

 

The PowerShot SX700 HS can only store photos on the memory card.  It has no internal storage.  Any photos taken while no memory card is installed will show on the screen for a few seconds after being taken and will then be discarded from the camera's buffer.  To ensure your photos have somewhere to go, always have a memory card installed.

 

Your PowerShot SX700 HS can connect to your Mac via Wi-Fi. Click HERE for step-by-step instructions how to get your devices talking to one another.

 

We hope this helps!

Many thanks, your help is very much appreciated.

 

An SD card has always been installed.  If I view the pics in the usual way by pressing the button with a blue

square and an arrow pointing right on the rear of the camera I can see the pics I took yesterday.  But if the

SD card is removed and I connect it to my iMac they do not appear.  But images taken some 3 months ago

do indeed appear.   So not all images are being shown.  I have been having problems with my iMac's HDD

and wonder if this could be the cause...

 

Best regards

Are you using a Card reader?

 

Where do they "not appear"?

 

iPhoto? Photos?

Hi Tocmpost,

 

Thanks for posting.

 

Your camera stores images inside numbered subfolders that are inside the DCIM folder. If you're looking at images taken 3 months ago, you'll need to back out of that folder. When you do, you'll see the other folders inside the DCIM folder. To access the other images, look into each subfolder.
