Unable to save image?

Hi guys, just got my q10, love the camera. Has anyone had issues with the memory cards? I tried one micro SD in an adapter, it took a few pictures then said unable to save image. I then put in a different micro sd in an adapter, it worked for a while, then said the same thing. After I format the card, it seems to work for a while, but I am afraid to take this traveling and have all my shots disappear.

That happened to me a number of times with the first SD card I had in the Q. I was also getting memory card error from time to time when I would power on the camera too.
I got a new SD card and since then it has been fine. No more errors.

You may want to do the same.

Buy a more reliable card. I was getting this all the time with a Lexar card in the Q and the K-01. Now I have a Sandisk, no problems.

Hmm I'll do that. I also am going to try and update the firmware as I see there was one in December and I'm sure this camera was still sitting in someone's stockroom back then

You can try formatting the card via the camera menu also if you haven't already. Worth a shot.
