I posted this on DPreview.com yesterday.
My wife leftyesterday for Mexico (San Diego) from Chicago Midway . While waiting to Depart She put it down next to her, and poof gone. She called just befor bording the plane almost in tears. She is with a large mission team and was looking forward to lots of Pic's and viedos.
The Good news is, I got the camera at Costco, paid with American Express. AE has a Purchase Protection Plan that protects eligible purchases made with the Card in the event they are accidentally damaged or stolen for up to 90 days from the date of purchase. So we may get a credit.
Costco found the p505 in their Mission Valley Store, only 8 to 9 miles from the Airport. She called when they arrived in SD, I had the map to get to the store and was able to guide her turn by turn over the cell phone. Adam at Costco Was a big help. and by now they should be in Mexico with a new P505.
What a Day for all. Can't wait to see the pics when she gets back.
