Lost in the ocean for more than a year, a Canon SLR was dredged up, and the images on its memory card have reunited it with its original owner
The Canon Rebel XS (Otherwise known as the EOS 1000 in other parts of the world) is a great little camera, known for many things — but water-proofing is not one of them. So you can imagine what a year at the bottom of Deep Bay, British Columbia would do to one. Biologist Markus Thompson was doing a diving job in that harbor when he discovered this SLR in the deeps. He pulled it up, cleaned it, and managed even to salvage photos from the SD card, despite a year of salt water corrosion.
