My friend has tried the Police route , Not interested , could not get into the local police station , They only want you to use the phone , He is not a criminal and objects to giving ALL his personal data on the reporting web site ,

Ah! It is not obvious, presumably until you start the online report, how intrusive the process might be :(

Edit ~ I thought what about camera clubs.........not one in Hockley but various around the area

Best thing to do is take one image from the card and post it on Facebook, it's one of the few things FB is really good at!

I have a vague memory of reading/seeing mention that where Flickr has EXIF if you do a Flickr search based on camera serial number it will find all images from that camera???

I think we may have found the owner ... there were a couple of posts when I searched on Facebook so I have private messaged them too.

Edit: They may not be able to message you on here. If you PM me your email address or phone number, I will PM them with it - two people have posted messages about it.

I think this this my camera! I lost it on Wednesday in Hockley woods (at least that's the last time I remember having it). Sorry, but I can't work out how to send you a personal message on this site. I can certainly prove it's mine if you could please contact me.

Welcome to TP, Ben.

To send a private message (confusingly called a conversation by the forum software), click on the member's user name then click the "Start a Conversation" button and follow the instructions. You might need to have made a few posts before the function is enabled. Might be worth contacting the administrators/moderators by using the Contact Us button near the bottom of the page to see if they can help you establish private contact with F1.2.

lets hope camera and yourself , if the owner, are reunited. of course it will cost you a huge celebration feast for all members ;)

I'm not really a people person but over the years I've found photographers are generally good and decent people.
F1.2 you post has restored my faith in humanity to a certain degree :D
