Default Can somebody help me identify my camera please?

Hi there,

Firstly thank you for reading this thread, I know the title may sound a bit strange so I'll explain.

1-2 months ago I had my camera stolen out of my handbag, I'm getting it replaced through the insurance but Jessops can't go ahead with providing a quotation until they know the model number.

Now all I know is it was a Fuji Finepix (didn't realise how broad a brand name this was) but that doesn't really help them so I'm turning to anyone who can help me try and identify it.

I know the following:

I've had it about 4 years
It cost approx 200
It was silver


I know that is rubbish and I'm sorry. I know it was a pretty good model at the time but because I have been using it for the last 4 years and got to grips with it a long time ago, I have had no need for the instructions or box or anything for quite a while and, even if I have still got them, I don't know where they are.

I'm not a camera genius by any means so don't know what else I can tell you, I'd be able to identify it by sight i think so any model numbers I can have a look at would be a great help.

If you want to ask me about any of the features it had then I can answer but probably could not tell you specifics like the x zoom numbers and such.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

xx

Welcome to the forum.

Have you got any of the image files from the camera on your computer
or on any photo sharing site like flickr? Each JPEG file from the camera
contains detailed information about the camera.

If the EXIF route doesn't work, perhaps if you used a credit card to buy it, the credit card company can retrieve info about the sale that the retailer can use to identify the model.

Yeah. If you have a picture taken with the camera on your computer, load it onto this site . . .

http://regex.info/exif.cgi

And when you upload the picture, it'll display some of the exif data. Which should include the name of the camera.

Take care, Glen

That sucks good luck to you on getting the replacement

On a side note: There was a women here in town who was able to track down the guys who stole her cameras because they were taking pictures of each other with them and her eye-fi card was uploading them to her internet account

tisnaps, that is great. It is like finding those who commit the crime when they post to facebook. With cameras being cheap as they are....

Looking up the information on the photos file is an excellent way to find out what camera you have!!!
