Photographer Reunited with Camera Lost Scuba Diving in 2010

We’ve all lost things now and again and most of the time we
know we don’t have any chance of getting them back.  Cameras especially fall into this
category.  Even if we lost them quite
innocently, someone finding a nice camera on the street might not be inclined
to return it.  Of course, losing your
camera underwater is another matter entirely.

When scuba diving recently outside of Vancouver photographer
Markus Thompson was surprised to find a Canon Rebel sitting on the ocean floor.  He brought the camera up to find that it had
been pretty severely damaged – past the point of being able to be used.  What still worked though, was the memory
card.

Thompson posted several pictures from the memory card and
provided with the date that each picture was taken based on exif data. His
efforts were rewarded when he was contacted by a friend of the camera’s owner.

It’s nice when things work out like that, isn’t it?
