Hope this is not evidence of an accident to the owner - or worse . . .

Some of the images on the card (if readable) may give clues as to their identity.

Some years ago, my son was using my K3 and left it on a beach. Someone found it and found his name in the copyright menu entry, and contacted him via facebook. He got the camera back.

The world is full of so many honest people. We always hear about the bad people, but we need to remember almost all of the worlds people are good, hardworking and honest.

Perhaps you could suggest to the person who posted on Facebook that they contact CRK with the serial numbers. There's a good chance that the owner will be in their records.

Especially in South Australia. Those that aren't serial killers (https://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-12-15/why-cant-adelaide-bury-murderous-capi...tation/9249142) are the nicest people on the planet. And every second one is a Pentaxian, going by the membership here.

Hi Des

We are the forgotten state so we better be good at something, ......... maybe not for the serial thing

Sorry but it was posted to a Facebook page which is anal about deleting posts not relative to that Group - so whilst I had tried to share it is now gone. Hopefully the owner will hear about it being found.

..... the swimmers got eaten by the great whites.
great whites?They were at the centre of the universe...Sydneee

And those whites that strayed down there looked at those Tasmaniac swimmers and mistook them for Hammerheads which they were friendly with.

The great whites love tuna in the Great Australian Bight on there way to South Africa.
