CameraTrace Emails You If Your Stolen Camera is Detected On The Internet
Looking for a lost camera on the web by searching for its serial number in uploaded photos is nothing new (see Stolen Camera Finder), but GadgetTrak’s new CameraTrace service takes it one step further.
For a fee of $10 per camera, the service will actively monitor the Internet for your camera’s serial number. If it ever pops up in a photo uploaded to popular photo sharing services, you’ll get an email notification.
Back in August, GadgetTrak’s manual Serial Search helped a photographer recover $9000 in stolen gear.
