"We found this camera in Toronto, north of the Danforth and east of Greenwood. We found this camera a few months ago and was told of this website just recently. We hope it works and we hope the camera is returned."

People - leave a name or number on these easy to forget phones and cards! I once was gifted a top of the line Minolta camera because no one had their name inside the bag. It fell off the back of a car, leaving an event, and after I got the bag I couldn't catch up to the car. THANKS, but I would have rather returned it (at least until I got used to using it...)

The guy in to the top picture looks like someone I used to know... Paul Jones. I can't seem to find an email address for him though.

Getting really bored with this site. Love the concept and I think it's a really great idea and I used to enjoy checking this site every week to see if there was anyone I knew and all the fun success stories. Now it's been a month since it's been updated.

You're losing your regular users by never updating and soon this website will be among the forgotten thousands of sites floating around the web that nobody goes to anymore.

I agree. Great idea, but lacking follow through.

Maybe not enough cameras are being lost and found. What are you going to do if you don't have material?

I feel the same way as the Anon posters above. Great idea but needs regular work. If you are overworked then you need to get help for keeping this site going.

wow, complainers. or you could just do what i do and check it every once in awhile (if and) when you remember, and if there's nothing new then CHILL OUT ABOUT IT and move on. There is more to life than the internet, peeps. Just a thought.
Besides, who else is doing this? It's pretty great.

Did you see the 10/12/09 entry by "Adam Drew" in the Found Your Camera group on Facebook? He lost his camera in Toronto. http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=7884234733

There's a post in a previous set of comments from the owner of the site that says there's material still being "worked on" from July. So yeah...there is material, it's just not being put up.

I'm not necessarily complaining, I just think it's sad to see a good site and idea go to waste because it's never updated and people quickly become bored with it and will stop coming altogether (not just "every once in awhile when you remember").

Besides, I think once a month qualifies as every once in awhile and this site hasn't been updated for over a month at this point.

Thursday has come and gone, but no new photos :( Maybe people aren't sending any in? Are there other better-frequented websites where orphan photos are sent?

I have been checking this site since my camera was lost on 4th october, but there have been no updates. Its a noble job to have started this site but we feel very disappointed and hopeless if it doesnt update more pictures, especially people like us who have lost our cameras and precious pictures.

I have sent in 5 different sets of images from cameras I have bought at thrift stores, found in parks, etc and not one of them has been posted. There is no way the owner of this blog updates it weekly as claimed. My suggestion si to let someone take it over that has the time, energy, & resources to manage it as was the owner's original intent. I am a freelance photographer by trade usually only taking on charity assignments, so I have plenty of time on my hands. I could do it for instance. I am not saying he should hand it over to me, just someone like me who is willing to do it. Such a great cause getting neglected whether it is online or offline truly is a tragedy.

I just subscribe so when something new comes in - it goes to my Google Reader. No constant checking or hassling. Just checked today to make sure the RSS feed was still valid.

I have been checking this blog regularly since I lost my camera Sept. 12th. I just hope the creator of this site is ok. If so- maybe he/she could let us know what the deal is? And maybe pass it on to someone else who has more time, resources etc, as the other posted suggested?

when stuff like this happens with people going AWOL on the web, i wonder if something terrible happened to them, like they got into a terrible car accident and are in a coma or got murdered. because let's say if it did happened, then obviously we needed know and clearly this site wouldn't be updated.

lol it's crazy, but i really hope nothing like that happened to the creator :S

would there be a way to open this up to facebook so people could just upload the photos and camera information that they found and not leave it to one person to upload everything?

There is a facebook group page run by this same blogger, but it is more complete. It has more photos posted and camera-losers are allowed to pot as well as camera finders. It is also called Found cameras and orphan photos group.
