A long shot - lost/stolen camera

by nesbitt2503 Online Now Apr 22, 2011 at 11:05 PM

Hey...

I know this is a longshot but I stupidly left my camera in one of the bar/shops on the ascent from Cat Cat to Sapa (literally one of the last shops before you reach the first hotels at the bottom of Sapa}.

It was a Panasonic Lumix TZ10 (or maybe TZ8 - I forget!}. I returned to the bar 40 minutes later and as expected the camera had gone. The owner asked some of the kids who frequent the place whether they had seen it - one of the children couldn't look me in the eye when this was being explained and I am certain one of the kids there knows its whereabouts.

Anyway if any of you kind souls are offered a panasonic camera that still has pictures on it (I am wearing a white t-shirt with "scottish widows" written on the front, my girlfriend a plain white t-shirt}, please take the camera and I will refund your costs and some!

I have about 7 weeks worth of pictures on there, only backed up half. I am obviously devastated to lose the pictures ( I really dont care about the camera, I would gladly take just the memory card back} and don't hold much hope of seeing them again but thought I should try every avenue to retrieve them.

Finally, remember to double check you have everything before you leave an establishment or suffer like me!

Thanks,

Shaun

    Thanks, I'm so annoyed with myself!

    Have you tried the website camerafound.com or ifoundyourcamera.net? I will be hunting in vain on these sites I'm sure over the next couple of weeks!

    I wrote out my email address and a note stating I would pay for the return of the memory card and took a picture of it. It is the first picture on my camera. I don't know if it will help, but it does identify the camera.

    It might be worth also posting this on the Travelfish Vietnam forum.
