    Wow, Missing Camera Found!

    No, Not my digital camera and although it would have been a feel good story for the New Lecia M, since it's their first that's water resistant, this one was lost almost 6 years ago while diving in Hawaii and it washed up on Taiwan's shore's where it was found by employee of China Airlines. They offered an all expense paid trip for the owner to pick up her camera! Wonder what brand of memory card was used as that also would be a big plus for the card manufacturer in advertising and I'm sure the camera manufacturer too! I haven't had time to read the entire article yet but apparently the camera was in one of those small underwater housings. Still, thats a long time to be under sea water, Oh the camera? Canon Powershot!

    Link to article and accomompanied new video:

    Agree, but can't imagine that the salt water environment didn't have some corrosive impact on the camera itself during that time, not to mention the memory card.

    I read the article about the camera on petapixel.com and followed a link to Hawiinews where there was another link to a slideshow of the images on the card. No telling what kind of shape the camera was in, but the images on the card appear to have survived the underwater journey.
