I found this while looking for another person who had mentioned on twitter that they had their camera stolen. The Stolen Camera Finder looks like amazing technology. I hope I never have to use it but if you have had your camera ripped off, it’s worth a try. Here is a rip from the website.

introduction

stolencamerafinder is an open source project that can locate a missing camera by searching for photos on the web that have been taken by that camera.

how it works

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 featurestolencamerafinder reads the unique serial number from the exif data of your photo and uses it to match against serial numbers it has stored.
