CameraTrace Helps You Track Stolen Cameras

While you are able to track the location of your smartphone or laptop when they get lost or stolen, your other precious device should be as well. GadgetTrak offers a new service called CameraTrace, which helps users recover their stolen cameras, after years of beta testing.

For a one-time fee of $10, CameraTrace lets you register your camera’s serial number. In case the camera gets lost or stolen, you will be notified though e-mail if anyone else tries to upload photos from it. Users can also search CameraTrace’s database of serial numbers for free, using over 5 billion photos.

Why the serial number? All digital cameras imprint their unique serial number on the photos they shoot. CameraTrace can detect these numbers whenever photos are uploaded online. You can find your camera’s serial number by looking on its base plate, inside the battery pack, or in the box.

CameraTrace also has a premium service that includes a physical lost and found tag that can be applied to the camera. The tag contains instructions on how to notify the owner through CameraTrace.
