Different from film-type pictures, digital photos can be easily deleted by pressing the “Delete” button carelessly or mistakenly, a threatening feature for digital cameras, like Nikon D5500 DSLR, D5100, D3100, etc. One wrong move may delete all your valuable pictures. The good news is that all deleted photos are not really gone after deletion. Only the storage where they’ve been stayed are marked as blank for reuse. Therefore, with a proper photo recovery tool, you can recover deleted photos from Nikon D5500 DSLR, D5100,or D3100 with ease.
First thing goes first: stop using your Nikon camera once the deletion happens, like capturing new photos or videos, avoiding deleted photos from being overwritten.
