K-x cropping question

I just discovered how to crop photos in my kx. After cropping 10 to 15 pics I got a message on screen that says jpeg full and then it all of my pics disappear. The 1rst time it happened it also said card errror. I am using an 8 gig card so I dont see how it could fill the card up so fast. Do cropped pics take up that much space or did I have a card problem or a camera problem?


Thanks for any advice...

I have no K-x, the problem may be internal RAM space.

What does the free image counter tell you the available space is now?

Then I wonder, why do you want to crop in camera with such a small screen to look at?
Why not take the image as it is and crop on your computer?

SD Card failures are common. I wouldn't be surprised if you have a bum card. Good indicators that you have a problem are: (1) you are using SD cards, (2) your camera tells you that you have a card problem.

I've had my share of cheap SD card failures. And I've had good SD card failures, too. So that's what I'd lean toward.
