Link: Stolen Camera Finder - find your photos, find your camera
Hopefully you won't need to use it but if you do perhaps it will help you get your property back?Is your camera lost or missing? Has your camera been stolen? If so, stolencamerafinder can help you find out where it is now.
We can help to locate a missing camera by searching for photos on the web that have been taken by that camera.
There are currently over 1 million camera sightings in our database and counting...
Every photo you take with your digital camera contains hidden information about both the image and the camera such as the make, model and date. This information, called exif data, can also include a unique serial number which identifies your camera.
StolenCameraFinder crawls the internet searching for photos, collecting the serial numbers of the cameras that took them.
When you use the drag & drop feature, stolencamerafinder reads the unique serial number from the exif data of your photo and uses it to match against serial numbers it has stored.
What a cool link. Many thanks. I've posted it to a friend who's a photojournalist who had one of his Nikon DSLRs pinched a couple of months ago.
Very handy, and it's definitely one of those ideas I just wish I'd got to first having noticed only today that the serial number is stored in EXIF data!
It would be a long way from finding photo to finding anonymous photographer
