Lost Nikon Coolpix P5000 what happens if you lose your camera when traveling? My daughter has lost hers while walking the el camino santiago pilgrimage. I am trying to help her find her camera, I am hoping another pilgrim would have picked it up and may try to find who it belongs to. If this person tries to search this lost camera I am also hoping that they will find one of the posts that I have made. I have also found a site that helps people who have or have found a camera. It is a great site that makes it easy to list the camera and location of lost or found cameras, it also provides a gallery to upload photos to help with identification. Great idea, here is a link to Here is a description of where and how my daughter thinks she lost here camera,
I had my camera leaving Fromista. I'm pretty sure I also had it in the next town 3.8 km later called Poblacion de Campos. After this town there was a choice to walk along the road or to walk along the river and we chose the path along the river, about 10 km later in Villalcazar de Sirga I went to take a picture and realized that i didnt have my camera anymore. In those 10 km we only passed through one small town called Villovieco, but we stopped other places in the shade along the path and it must have just fell out of my bag at some point. So, it could be anywhere along this 10 km stretch of path beside the river. I should've gone back to look for it, but it was hot and the thought of walking backwards in the sun with no shade overpowered the desire to find my camera. I regretted that later when I was rested again, but well thats what happened.
