Panasonic Lumix GH2

Stolencamerafinder.com
 is a new website setup to find your stolen or lost digital camera, by searching the internet for images containing the same camera serial number as your lost camera. The system works by reading your EXIF data, reading the serial number, then searching the internet for images that contain that serial number. This will only work with cameras that record the serial number in the EXIF data, and you can upload an image to start the search or manually type in the serial number if you know it. 

We have tested the site with the following cameras, and found that unfortunately, only some of the models record the serial number in the EXIF data. The site appears to work best with Fujifilm, Panasonic cameras, Olympus Micro Four Thirds, and Nikon Digital SLRs:


Fujifilm FinePix S2950 Yes
Fujifilm FinePix X100 Yes
Nikon Coolpix P300 No
Nikon Coolpix P500 No
Panasonic Lumix TZ18 Yes
Panasonic Lumix LX5 Yes
Ricoh CX5 No
Canon Powershot S95 No
Canon Powershot SX220 HS No
Olympus SP-610UZ No
Kodak Easyshare Mini M200 No - serial number recorded as "null"
Nikon D5100 Digital SLR Yes
Canon EOS 1100D No
Panasonic Lumix GH2 Yes
Olympus PEN E-PL1 Yes
Sony NEX-3 No

A full list of supported models is available on the website here. The Panasonic Lumix GH2 image is for illustration purposes only, this camera has not been stolen.

Very good, although there web site states that the Canon 40D has this feature, the Canon 40D Digital does not?
What is the difference? is there a diference?
