Found a digital camera on a hill overlooking upper Rough Canyon in the Superstition Wilderness on Oct 31, 2015. I have recovered 143 pictures including a few short movie clips from the memory card going back to Dec 2007. It was lost on March 24, 2010. After studying the pictures I think the owner is in the attached picture taken on Feb 12, 2010. If anyone knows who lost this camera and they want the pictures please PM me.

Yes, it does! (I had to go look at the back of my book).

Would it be bad to hold the camera ransom for a nominal HAZ donation?

This is an incredible story unfolding. I can't wait to hear how it goes when it is returned.

Thanks to everyone helping to identify the probable owner. I will contact him and let you know the outcome.

The plot thickens...another claims ownership...Larry must decide... :STP: :lol:

JSF hasn't responded yet but another person who knows him told me he took the photo so I'm sure he can identify the where and camera. I was just having fun...

If both can name the exact make/model of camera then providing the serial # should settle it. Hopefully the true owner either registered it or has definitive proof.

The camera might be beyond hope. Who wants the pictures?

The camera spent 5 1/2 years outside. It doesn't work. Unless it has fancy lenses or accessories that aren't damaged by weather I doubt anybody actually wants the camera anymore. I would be more interested in the photos on the memory card if I had lost it.

Thanks to Wally for following up on this and finding the correct owner. I also have not heard from JSF but based on email reply to Wally from this other guy, I am sure he is the owner. I have sent him an email with Dropbox link to photos since he expressed an interest in them.
