Stolen Camera Finder

If you lose your camera there’s now a possible way of finding it again. Every digital camera stores the serial number of the camera in the EXIF data of the photos.

Stolencamerafinder.com lets you upload a photo you’ve taken with the lost or stolen camera, searches the web for matches and then displays the results on a map for you.

In my case, thankfully there was no reason to click the lost or stolen buttons, but these are expensive cameras and well worth the $6 monthly fee to attempt to recover them if they ever get stolen.
