Markus Thompson found this Canon 1000D in the Pacific Ocean, where it had been underwater for one year. The SD card in the camera still works and now Markus is using Google+ to look for the owner. Here’s his original post:
For Sale: Canon EOS 1000D
Description: only used underwater once, in the Pacific Ocean, for approximately one year.
Actual story: found off the end of a wharf in Deep Bay, BC while I was diving on a job for the harbour. I removed the SD card, cleaned it up, stuck it in a card reader and after being underwater in a corroding camera since August 2010 – it works! Approximately 50 pictures on the card from a family vacation. If you know a fire fighter from British Columbia whose team won the Pacific Regional Firefit competition, has a lovely wife and (now) 2 year old daughter – let me know. I would love to get them their vacation photos 🙂
There are other clues on within the pictures – I think we should be able to track them down (not sure he’ll want the camera back tho).
