After I received my now-infamous lost camera in the mail, I set up my iPhone and shot a video of me taking it out of the box.
Yes, this Canon Rebel XT spent three years underwater in the Adirondacks, and it’s mucked up pretty badly.
I lost when I was standing on a little bridge taking pictures (and oh, I’ve seen the pictures suck and they suck), and when I took my camera off my tripod, I kind of fumbled it and dropped in the water. I spent 20-30 minutes trying to fish it out, but I thought it was gone.
It is covered in mud, much of the finished washed off, and I can’t seem to take off the lens. I’ll be following up with close-up pictures of the camera and the memory card.
In the future, I’ll be telling my full version of the story, which has a twist that may surprise you, but for now, the NY Times did a pretty good job of going over the facts. I’ll also be posting detailed photos of the camera and memory card, and eventually, some of the pictures on the card.
In the meantime, you can follow me on Twitter.
