Stolen Camera Finder – This is a pretty cool service that allows users to search the Internet for images taken and uploaded by a possibly stolen camera.
Stolen Camera Finder uses the serial number stored in a photo to search the web for photos taken with the same camera. That said, there are limitations like the image must be a valid jpeg file.
For photos to show up, they not only have to have embedded data, but also must be posted somewhere like Flickr, Twitter, Facebook, or any public site.
You must register at the website for 1 free search. More than 1 search requires a premium payment. Each service has options with the paid services having many more options than the free service.
The Free account allows 1 free search.
The Pro account with a cost of £4.99 each month (around 8 US dollars) and you then get 100 searches per month.
The Business account is £99.99 each month (around $162 US dollars) for unlimited searches per month.
- EDIT: Since posting this I have found another service called Camera Trace and it appears to be the same except for pricing. They are wanting $10 per camera or around £7.
