Brief Overview of Fuji x100 Cameras

The Fujifilm x100 camera has been the favorite of thousands of users around the globe. It is a unique and powerful camera, effectively focused on going back to the basics, while providing the users with modern visionary features. It includes a beautiful lens and a fabulous sensor.

Fuji x100s are really the MVPs when it comes to uneven attention to detail. The hybrid rangefinder feature is incredibly cool, and the camera has been given a solid, retro look.

The low light performance is top-notch and the camera provides incredible quality videos and photos. The only complaint users have had is that the autofocus is often slow and irritating. Manual focusing is also plainly awful. Besides, the old-school menu operations too can frustrate you while navigating.

Nevertheless, if you own a Fujifilmx100, you have chosen one of the best market products.

Still, due to some reason, you might be unable to access your recorded video or photo. Here's a list of probable reasons for losing your recordings from the SD card:

How to Recover Deleted Video from Fuji x100 cameras?

Now that we know what might have caused the loss of our precious recording, let's list and break down all the possible solutions that we have to recover our deleted video from the Fujix100 device's SD card.

Method 1: Use Fujix100 Video Recovery Software

The first and probably the best light of hope is using some video and photo recovery software. While you will find a huge library of such software online, there are only a few that provide enhanced recovery options that can retrieve your lost recording no matter what the reason for the loss was.

One such powerful tool, used and recommended by users worldwide, is WonderShare Recoverit Software. This software's enhanced recovery feature has successfully helped people like you trying to recover deleted video from the Fujifilm x100 device.


After you install the software on your computer, all it takes is 3 simple steps:

Step 1: Going for the "Enhanced Recovery" Option

To start, select the Enhanced Recovery Option. You can do this via 2 ways.

  1. When the scanning process is going on, if you look at the bottom-left side of the scanning interface, you'll see an "Enhanced Recovery" feature option. Select it.
  2. Another way is this: As you open the window to preview a video, at the bottom you will see the same "Enhanced Recovery" option. To launch it, simply select it.

After you opt for enhanced recovery, a prompt window will appear that will brief you about the operations of this feature. This is a smart scan that allows you to merge video fragments. Let it complete the scan, and after confirming your choice, you will have to click on the "Start" button.

Step 2: Running a Deep Scan

Step 3: Previewing & Recovering

All the enhanced recovery results will now be displayed to you for previewing. The interface will display any specific video that you might be looking for.

On seeing the video that you want to recover, select them and click on the "Recover" button. On doing so, a browser window will appear. This is to ask you for the desired location for saving your recovered video files.

It is highly recommended to save the files in a different location than the previous one, from where they went missing.

Congrats! Your recordings are back.

Please note that in most cases, this enhanced recovery feature will retrieve your video or photo. In case it fails to do so, your computer's OS might be facing some trouble in recognizing and reading your camera's SDHC card.

In this case, we can go for some troubleshooting options to make your SD card readable again.

Method 2: Reinstalling the Driver

The first manual solution is to try to reinstall the camera's driver on your system. This can be done by following these steps:

Connect the camera to your computer using a USB cable and then turn the camera device on. Now,

Step 1: Open your computer's Device Manager. If you use Windows 10, click on the Start button, and then click on Device Manager.

If neither the Recoverit software nor these troubleshooting methods work for you, it is a case of a severely corrupted SD card. Here, you might need to go for advanced manual recovery. Consider walking into your nearest manual data recovery service center.

Some Suggestions to Prevent Data Loss in Cameras

Here's a list of things that you should keep in mind, so that the chances of such a situation of data loss happening remain low.

  • Have a backup of the SD card on your PC, cloud, or any other storage media.
  • Do not record for very long durations. Take your time and let the device cool out.
  • Avoid getting your Fuji device or the SDHC card wet.
  • Ensure ample battery on your device while recording.
  • Make use of a card reader.
  • Do not do any deleting/formatting of files on your camera directly. Use your PC.
  • Keep your SD card safe and secure, with enough free space on it.


Losing important files is something we all have faced. Due to unavoidable circumstances, it is possible to lose your videos and photos, even on strong, secure devices like the Fujifilmx100 cameras.

We all know that prevention is better than cure. It is highly recommended to take all the prevention steps mentioned above. Keeping a backup and having enough free space on the SD card; these 2 things are a must!

Still, god forbid, if you are unable to find your recordings, try the mentioned manual troubleshooting methods. If those do not work, it's an advanced case of data loss.

Here, the best sure-shot solution is provided by WonderShare's Recoverit software. You can rely on its enhanced recovery feature to easily recover lost video from your Fujix100 camera for free.

With its complex search algorithms and detailed filters, the software does all the work for you. All you have to do is follow the simple steps we discussed, and then sit back and let the magic tool do its job!
