Found: A Ricoh compact camera in a train in Finland

Just in case somebody would know the owner of this camera:

A FB-friend of mine found it in a train between Helsinki and Turku in Finland on this date, which is September 4th 2013. The camera obviously belonged to a Japanese couple and it had pre-wedding and wedding photos, as well as travel shots taken in Finland. There were also pictures taken in Tampere (of the Moomin Valley) and in Tallinn, the Capitol of Estonia.

I don't have any more info about the camera, but I can of course ask the guy who found it.
So, if you know somebody who knows somebody who's lost a camera with quite emotionally important pictures, please pass the link to them.

Tracking the owners down sounds like a fun project.

Check with the train operator to see if someone reported it missing?

I don't suppose this camera embeds copyright info in EXIF...

Maybe Ricoh knows owner name based on S/N?

Is the language set to Japanese?

Here's an idea -- try Google Image Search with a few photos from the camera. Maybe the owners posted some of the photos on the web somewhere...

Have you tried websites for cameras which have been found? Also you could try finding Japanese Ricoh groups on Facebook as they might be members. Just a thought.

e.g. Gallery - Category: FOUND A CAMERA (Upload photos from Found Camera - Head shots only!)
