Stolen Camera Finder

Have you ever lost a camera? Frustrated that you can't get the camera back? Well, there may be hope!

StolenCameraFinder can find out if someone posting photos with your camera!

Simply drag and drop an old photo that was taken with the camera, and StolenCameraFinder will search the internet for the serial number that is hidden in the photo metadata.

StolenCameraFinder currently support 1,534 cameras. You can see all the supported cameras on their website.

Website Details

Every photo you take with your digital camera contains hidden information about both the image and the camera such as the make, model, and date. This information, called EXIF data, can also include a unique serial number that identifies your camera.

stolencamerafinder crawls the internet searching for photos, collecting the serial numbers of the cameras that took them.

When you use the drag & drop feature, stolencamerafinder reads the unique serial number from the EXIF data of your photo and uses it to match against serial numbers it has stored.

If StolenCameraFinder can't find your photo, it will recommend places to report your camera stolen (or lost).

Note: This won't work for smartphones as they don't store serial numbers in their photos. Maybe Apple should change this in the new iPhone?

https://veed.io

Main Features

As of this writing, these are the main features of Veed.io.

Add Images to Video - Add logos and photos to any video. You can add it for the whole video or just certain parts.

Add Subtitles to Video - You can add your own subtitles using your own style and design. You can save the style to use in other videos

Auto Subtitle - Automatically generate subtitles from the audio of the video. How cool is that!

Filter Video Online -You can easily change the overall color to match various styles. Pick filters that best fit the mood that you are trying to come across.

Music Visualisation - Add an audio visual to your video so that it moves as music or words are spoken. Useful if you have an audio track with a static image.

Translate Video - Easily add translation subtitles to your videos to reach larger markets! Now you can start promoting your services/podcast to different countries.

Note: The veed.io team are consistently launching new features. So expect to see new features soon!

Online Editor

Veed.io is an online editor and it works great with the iPhone. You can upload a video from your phone and apply any style or effect.

Now you can be a production expert right from your phone!

Sample Video

Check out the sample video that I created.

I had an old Traffic Report from 2002. I added the logo and automatic subtitles to give it a really cool effect. Note: I didn't touch up the subtitles. There are a few places where a break or word needed to get fixed - which you can easily do in Veed. I just wanted to demo that effect.

Final Word

The two things that impress me with veed.io are:

  1. Automatic Subtitles - This is a cool feature that I haven’t seen elsewhere. More and more videos are adding subtitles as people don’t have sound on when they are browsing social media. Veed makes adding subtitles super easy.
  2. Music Visualisation - This is also hard to find. You can buy plugins for Final Cut Pro, but they are very expensive. Veed makes it easy to place the visualization and offers different styles to choose from.

I would encourage people to check out veed.io and play around with the tools.

Sample

The best thing about a machine that makes sense is you can very easily make it turn out nonsense. Let's go in! An unintelligent enemy is far less dangerous than an intelligent one…. You've had this place redecorated, haven't you? Hmm, don't like it. Logic, my dear Zoe, merely enables one to be wrong with authority. Oh my word! Life depends on change and renewal. Oh I'm so sorry, Jamie. Not allowed? Not allowed? Me, I’m allowed everywhere. There are some corners of the universe which have bred the most terrible things. Things which act against everything we believe in. They must be fought.
