    Better to leave your contact number with the taxi service as the person may not be on this forum.

    it is better to post at kopitiam, will get better response and this has noting to do with discussion about Canon equipment.

    btw, check the exif meta to see whether it has the owner name and contact details

    But car keys means that person who lost it may have a car but chose to sit in taxi. So maybe the owner was a tourist. The photos in the camera will show whether the usual tourist photos were taken. Better to lodge with Police, as owner would have made a Police report.

    If the owner is a local, then you can try to check with Canon HQ in Singapore. If the owner sent in warranty card, then the serial number fo the canon camera body will lead to a match of owner's name and contact details.

    you should pass your info to the cab company.

    if I lost anything in the cab, the first thing i do is to contact the cab company and I doubt I has mood to come to forum.

    But wait. Is this forum message meant to justify why the finder can keep the stuff for as long as no one sends a detailed description in CS Kopitiam forum?
    What is the probability of that happening? So does it mean that if the owner was never aware there was a CS Kopitiam forum or even a CS website, that the finder can now legitimately use and own the stuff found? Something is not right, here.

    I don't think that simple line there means "I will keep the camera if no one claims."

    Don't think too much.

    Clubsnap Forum has members from various countries.

    The message does not even say in which country or where the camera was found.

    What if it was found in KL but everyone thought message was referring to a loss in Singapore.

    Better to state clearly:
    Found - Where you found it. e.g. near Capitol - maybe owner just got off taxi there.

    What Date & Time. - gives fast fix

    In what taxi - NTUC Blue Hyundai ?

    Camera - e.g. Brand: Canon Model: EOS 5D Mark2
    Lens: Canon 50mm F1.4
    Just ask owner who lost it to describe: Serial number of Camera Body and/or Lens

    But why play ... answer my 64 Questions Game?

    Hand it over to the Police.

    Why are you giving him such a hard time?

    If I were him, I would post this too, and verify the owner's identity, and if it's ok, just send it off to him chop chop.

    If after a few days, no one comes forward, I can pass it to the police. Are you saying that after he posts this advertisement, and after a few days, the passing-to-police avenue is closed? Do you think it saves people trouble if the person is here in these forums and comes forward to claim? Yes. So...?
