I'm not quite sure where to post this, but since it happened while using my D700, I'm going to try here. Mods - if there is a more appropriate venue, please feel free to move the thread.

So... I'm on vacation last week and I had a whole segment of pictures lost to some kind of malfunction. A number of the images looked like below, others were completely black. Images shot on the same card in the same session after the bad sequences came out just fine. Of note, I was shooting RAW, using my D700 set up for 5 exposure 1ev brackets, using the Ch shooting mode. The card was an 8GB 233X Lexar which was trouble free before and after the tragic pixel slaughter. Images were transferred from a card reader to an external hard drive passing thru a Macbook Pro. The "bad images" cannot be opened in NX2. Photoshop refuses to open also, giving an "unexpected end of file" error message. I was able to get this example extracted by opening it in (of all things) Preview, then saving as a PSD and reopening in Photoshop and converting thence to jpeg.

The questions I have are:
1. Has anyone else ever experienced a similar problem?
2. Does this malfunction have any implications for the function of my camera or flash card?

The trick is not to make lemonade when life hands you lemons. The trick is to find the person life has handed vodka to and then have a party.
