Camera Found and Returned to Owner After Sitting in a Creek for Three Years


John Noerr was out hiking in the Adirondacks last month and stumbled upon a Canon XT, just sitting in a muddy creek. He pulled the camera out and took it home with him, hoping to find out who it belonged to.

Remarkably, the memory card that was inside - a 2GB SanDisk Ultra II CF - was still functional. The path to finding out was incredibly complex, but after some time, Noerr was able to track down the original owner, whose brother had dropped the camera off of a bridge while on a camping trip.

Sure a mud soaked camera and a 2GB CF card aren't exactly precious treasure, but the 581 images on the card are certainly welcomed back.
