  1. #1

    Default I lost my camera bag with camera and lenses on Good friday ^_^!

    My bad, i left my camera bag with camera and lense inside the bag, on atm machine in AMK central..around 10am on last friday, Good Friday.. and was paying attention on my receipt after transaction..so i forgot the bag ha.

    Any kind souls had found it? it is old film camera with manual focus lenses, the sentimental value is more than it worth ha..

    yes, i have made a report immediately. i went to AMK police station first, but quite disappointed with their act, they just jotted down my id, and what had lost then they told me they will inform me if anyone found it. Not even hand me any report..sigh.

    so i made another effort to Yio chu kang police station, and a report was made =) but actually i feel that they don't try hard to know what is those items.. if they see a camera, i wonder do they know what is the camera model? or what kind of lense is it? ha.

    it is a lowepro waistbag, quite a big one with 3 partition. 1 FM2 inside, one 50mm lense and two 35 lense =).. with some used film and unused film.

    maybe i should pay the flea market a visit =)

    Another thought...U may like to try Cash Converter AMK, which is nearby lor.

    u mentioned to the police that u "forgot" the bag, it is non-incriminating lor.
    if you said "someone took/pickpocket your expensive camera" while you are busy engaging with your atm withdrawal, there is an "intention to steal", which make the case "incriminating", so the report will be valid.

    ha, yeah, i went-by cash converter AMK ha.. but see nothing ler. However my friend told me that in cash converter they will ask for the receipt u bought for those equipment, if no, you will need to leave id number and name.. it is said to prevent stolen items to be sold.

    my lense 50mm f/1.4 serial number is 5842677, if anyone see it let me know ha..

    actually i was thinking of checking the bank cctv, see got any clues..but think again, it seems like a hassle to follow it.. just hope they person who got my camera and lense, take a good care on them!!! lol.. or if you sell it, use the money for a good purpose..ha.

    ha, but sometimes it is a bit sentimental, the bag and camera and lense had been with me since i took up photography..always will be missed..ha.

    By any chance did you write down the s/n of yr camera/lens?
    We can keep a lookout for those s/n when looking around.

    Then you should just use -_-;

    Try 2nd hand shops, whoever had taken it, if they are familiar with it might probably keep it or sell it in 2nd hand camera shops.. whoever not, may want to take a look to see if they can use it... Do you have any form of identity in the bag? If so, you might see if the one who took it might be kind enough to return it. If not, it might be hard for them to be kind souls also. Generally, I think the culture to bring found items to police stations is not very strong here.

    I wonder if the police do consolidate the lost reports with found reports and return the belongings back to the rightful owner if they were reported in different police stations..

    ok thanks =) i guess if someone return it to police station, then i will get it, but a weekend passed, so i guess no.

    I am also not sure how hard the police will try to match those lost and found items =)
