**** Anyone lost a mega expensive professional camcorder?*****

Banned 48 replies
Found 12th Feb 2009
On my way to work earlier today, I was rather shocked to see a rather expensive Canon professional Camcorder, just left all on its own without an owner in sight.

After waiting for 15 minutes to make sure no one unauthorised took it, I realised that no one seemed to want to claim it. Feeling it might go walkies, I thought it best to ensure its safety by taking it with me.

Someone suggested I should use if for a short while, maybe make a short movie or even a modelling shoot.

What do you think?

This is the camera concerned (in before the post pics or you're lying brigade. Probably £10 to £20 grands worth.

What on Earth would he need it for? Film himself posting on a forum? Sounds like a non starter. Epic Fail.

what was it pointing at? and was it recording?

any previous tapes in there?

BRB..................I'll go and check if I have still got my mega expensive camera.

Ha Ha HA :-D :-D

Hand it in to the police and let them find the owner? Or keep it... :P Ebay it? God knows.

What did the sign say? Please do not touch? Please keep off?

was it filming?

check the footage, if you cant find the owner i will offer £30 delivered if you post first

Eek. We used to have a very similar model at my college. I wonder if some students have taken it out, and then just put it down, lit up a spliff, and forgot all about it. It's easy done if it's not something you normally carry, as my mate Tony found with his laptop one time when we nipped to the park between classes. Oops.

I need to check. There are zipper pockets on the bag, but haven't looked yet. (I'm at work at the mo)

It said "wet paint" believe it or not. Probably unrelated unless it was being used to film paint drying. (Then again 60,000 people every other week go to the emirates stadium and see something as exciting!)

Agreed. It weighs a ton. Can't see that someone just "forgot about it".

You will probably find it was a Police/Crimewatch set up to see if someone would take the camera while they were secretly filming it and you will be the main feature on the next episode :w00t: you tealeaf ;D

Good point. It just said please take care - wet paint. Maybe it was a decoy?

It is hers. Shall i pm you her contact number to verify details.

I have decided you are quite full of s**t...... lol

On your way to work, you spot a camera, high up on a window ledge?

You have a picture of the camera, from inside the building?

Signs warning of wet paint don't usually start with PLEASE anything....

hmmmmm

Maybe it was stolen and dumped by the theives to pick up later when there were less people around........

If you seriously found the camera (and its not a BG1 spoof) , to be on the safe side, I'd had it in to the police. If nobody claims it you get to keep it legally. If someone does claim it, you might get a reward.

still waiting to get a girl to come up there?

What about using it for a "professional" photo shoot in Italy for Romanian FHM. I know a guy with big guns, big wallet and even bigger ego.........I'll ask his driver to call round to his penthouse and drop him off in his merc. Could be the start of a "fruitful" relationship.

(Be warned though, if he offers to take you out for a meal he'll expect something in return :whistling: )
