    Default Photo clues lead to camera's owner

    Amazing story...and it is a true life account! How a lost and found digital camera ended up back in the original owner's hands, after lots of 'detective work', using the photos only as possible clues.

    I know people who found a film compact camera left by a Japanese expat with his name and other details engraved on the camera.
    But somehow, the finder refused to look for the owner and wanted to keep the camera. The camera was not expensive.
    That happened years ago. The finder was otherwise, a regular nice guy with good income. I found it strange.
