Default How do you identify your camera?

With my beautiful new Nikon CoolPix 775 digital camera in hand, I'm nearly ready to get lei'd. I thought I'd leave the photo labs out of the getting lei'd process. Who knows, they might have some kind of rules about printing pictures of people getting lei'd!

What I want to know is if any of you can recommend a way to mark or identify my camera. Although, if something happens and I carelessly let it get stolen, I know I'll never see it again. But I like to think that if I accidently got separated from it, some kind and honest soul might try to get it back to me.

Jenn.. U could take it into an engraver. Find a place on the body to engrave your name and a phone number, without doing any damage to the camera.

I'd just engrave your first name. They charge by the letter.

I would do two things, Jennifer, if you're really concerned.

Get one of those animal scrubbies from a place like BB&B for high visibility and attach it as well as a small luggage tag with your initials, name of ship, and cabin number.

HINT: When you are in the dining rooms or out at a restaurant, put the camera "strap" under one chair leg or around your ankle.

Following up on Kuki, any jewelry store can do the engraving.

Pamda is right on. Last week I bought a Sony Mavica and it already has a luggage tag on it including one on my case. Also, I never sit anywhere (restaurant, airport, cruiseline) without having some part of my body wrapped with the cord. Seen too many friends lose items that way.
