Why weren't any of my photos found?

There are a few reasons why photos might not have been found:

  1. In order for a camera to be supported, it must embed it's serial number into the photos' EXIF data. See above for a partial list of supported cameras.
  2. Some photo editing applications strip out the photos' EXIF data.
  3. There must be 'public' photos posted to Flickr, 500px, Panoromio, Twitter, or Twitpic. We will be adding additional photo sharing site shortly.
Will CameraTrace work in my country?

Yes, CameraTrace works worldwide. The Lost & Found Tags even ship for free no matter where you are.

Which photo sharing sites to you search?

We have currently indexed Flickr, 500px, Panoromio, Twitter, and Twitpic. Our database of cameras and photos is growing extremelely quickly and we plan to add additional sites shortly (Smugmug, Picasa, Photobucket, etc).

How do you get the serial number?

Digital cameras and even smartphones embed data in images in what are called EXIF tags, many digital cameras embed the serial number of the camera along with other data such as shutter speed, flash settings etc. In increasing cases location data is also embedded in the images, particularly smartphones.

What about smartphones, can you find them as well?

Not yet, no smartphone manufacturers are embedding serial numbers in the cameras yet, although many will embed location data. If you are worried about theft of your phone we recommend using our GadgetTrak Mobile Security software for Android, Blackberry and iPhones, it will allow you track a lost/stolen phone as well as remotely backup and wipe data from the device.

I found a camera with my serial number but it is a different model than mine, why?

Particularly with Nikon cameras the serial numbers are sequential by model, so the same serial number exists across the different models, this is why we also grab the make and model
