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. Putting the entire story on Google+, Markus gathered what info he could about the person who lost the camera: a firefighter from British Columbia.
