Ya know, .....

this could possibly make for one hell of a prank... stage some photos that yer out hiking, then get some photos looking like yer getting attacked by el-chucacabara or something, and just leave it out for a hiker.

see if you make the news.

lol

Based on its condition I think they thought it was a total loss. It was and they didn't realize the photos were still on the SD card and not destroyed. They just didn't pack out their trash.

Try a google search with words like "Lost camera, Colorado" etc - the owner might have posted in a forum somewhere and Big Brother could find it.

it has lived for 2 years out in the Colorado mountains....that could just be natural abuse on the camera and not the source of foul play or Sasquatch attack

cool story nonetheless!

Alien abductions happen quite often there. Usually they send out people to remove all traces. Now that you pop up with the camera, you might be putting your family in jeopardy.

On a hike today on the Lost Lake trail near Eldora, Colorado I stumbled across a smashed and rusted point and shoot digital camera. I used it as a prop in a couple of photos of the waterfall on the trail and then I thought. Hey, I wonder if it has a memory card in it.

It was pretty beat up but I managed to get the sliding door on the bottom of the camera open to find a 128MB SD card. The contacts looked kind of dirty so I popped it in my pocket to take home and clean up.

The camera turned out to be a Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z75 which was reviewed in January of 2007 by DPReview.com I was able to access the card once and copied the photos from the card to my laptop. I only got some of them but the date on them is 09/15/2007 and the some of the photos are of the University of Colorado football game agains Florida State University. I checked the CU website and they did play (and beat) FSU 09/15/2007 in a night game.

The woman in some of the photos is wearing a FSU baseball cap so I wonder if they were from Florida.

Kind of an interesting mystery, eh?

The gold contacts on the SD card are flaking off so I'm not sure I'll be able to access the card again. I've just got what I copied to my HD during the one time it read the card.

Best Regards,
Roger
