While cellphones might be the go-to photographic device for many people these days, Many of us choose to stick with a mission-specific device to capture the moments of our lives. Whether it’s a fancy DSLR that cost us more than our first car or a trusty point-and-shoot that simply gets the job done, the investment of time and money that a photographer outs into their camera is substantial enough that seeing it lost or stolen is unthinkable. Should such a crisis ever arise, you can curse the gods of photography for not equipping your shooter with GPS transmitter, or you can attempt to track it down using Stolen Camera Finder, our Cool Site of the Week.
Stolen Camera Finder is a site dedicated to--you guessed it--locating stolen cameras. Users are invited to drag and drop a photo taken with their missing camera to the website’s interface. Once the image has been uploaded, Stolen Camera Finder will attempt to read the camera serial number information stored in the photograph, matching it against the serial numbers of images found elsewhere online. If you’re lucky, a serial number match may lead back to user name or image service account, giving you some vital information to feed to the authorities for investigation.
If you’ve no photos to submit to the service, Stolen Camera Finder also allows for manual input of your camera’s serial number--provided you’re lucky enough to have it on file.
Straight forward and easy to use, Stolen Camera Finder is a must bookmark site for all shutterbugs. Be sure to check back every Friday for another edition of Cool Site of the Week.
