A Hillwalking Detective Story Part 2
Two years ago I wrote a piece on Mountainviews about finding a camera in the Wicklow Mountains and how I was able to use the photos on the memory card to track down the owner. Read that article here: http://mountainviews.ie/motleyviews/general/comment/1412/

Last month an MV member contacted Mountainviews to see if we had a lost and found section as he had found a camera. We donít have a lost and found section but the query was sent my way to see if I could help. I obtained the memory card and within half an hour was able to ring a lady in Tipperary to tell her that her camera was safe and sound. Itís amazing what can be gleaned from a memory card Ė in this case I pulled enough information from the card about places visited, both in Ireland and abroad, to help me narrow down who had lost it. The photos presented me with four potential ways to find her but in the end the simplest method was a Google search using details from the photos as search terms helped me find her.

So often itís not the camera but rather the value of the photos that are the real loss. I can testify to this as my phone has suffered a Ďsudden deathí that is afflicting my particular type of Samsung phone, and Iíve lost valuable photos.

It might be a crazy idea, but what about making the first photo on your memory card a photo of your phone number? A lot more lost and found cameras would be reunited with their owners that way! And if you do find a camera and you think I can help just ask!
