I had photo session today and accidentaly forgot my SD card at home. I continued with the shoot hoping I would be able to get the pics off but I can't figure out how too. It's a Canon Rebel T3i. Please please tell me I can get the pics off my camera! Sorry if this is in the wrong section.


I own a Canon EOS Rebel T3i. 50mm lens and 55-250mm lens. Canon rocks!

No card = no photos.

For the future, see if your camera has a custom function that prevents you from even taking a shot if no memory card is present.

'no SD card' should show up on the screen every time you take a photo

You are going to have to apologise to your client and say there was an [Unspecified] technical problem, and that the camera didn't record the image to the card (kinda true). They will need to come in for a free re-shoot. You should probably throw in some extra prints or a discount for their trouble.

Going forward you will want to prepare a pre-flight check-list so that you never leave home again without a necessary piece of kit.

thanks for being kind about it. This is my first DSLR so I was used to my point and shoot having an internal memory. I didn't know that DSLR's didn't have them. I told her already and she understands. The shoot was free anyway.

For the rest of you all who responded you didn't have to act so rude. This is my first DSLR and i'm used to having an internal memory if i've forgotten the card. I didn't know that DSLR's didn't come with an interntal memory so ya'll saying, "wow" and "lol" really makes me feel more awful about the situation and makes me feel dumb.

If you're still into photography 2 years from now.. Youll think this is funny! Just like we do. I don't think 'wow' or 'lol' are rude and you will laugh about it months from now.

Definitely find that custom function as set it. On the T2i it is in the first menu (camera with one star) "Release Shutter Without Card". You need to disable that feature to prevent this from happening again.

Also, you should really have more than one memory card. I have a card wallet tethered to my bag. So even if I were to leave a card on my desk, I'd have plenty more to use once I got on site.
