Sometimes, when you lose a camera, you’re never going to get it back. There are times though when a good Samaritan will want to return it. But how will they find you?

My friend Greg passed this tip along: the next time you wipe your camera’s memory card clean, take a picture of your contact info, and lock the image. It will be the first image on the card. If said Samaritan finds your camera, there’s a good chance you’ll get it back.

Thanks for the tip, Greg!
