    W/E Sunday Mar 31st

    MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) -

    Lindsay Scallan of Newnan, Georgia never imagined that she would see the precious photos from her past again. She snapped them during her Maui vacation in 2007, but lost her new camera during a night scuba dive in Kaanapali.

    "The seas were really rough. There was a lot of sand stirred up. It was hard to see," said Scallan.

    Scallan returned to the beach the next morning, hoping the camera had washed up on shore.

    "But of course, we didn't find it, so at that point I just gave up. I was pretty disappointed because I had all my vacation pictures on there. Plus, the cost of the camera," Scallan said.

    The Canon PowerShot was in a waterproof case and it drifted thousands of miles to Taiwan. A China Airlines employee discovered the camera on a beach last month. The airline asked Hawaii News Now to help find the owner seen in many of the pictures. Once the story hit the airwaves and the internet, Scallan's friend sent her a link.

    "I just was floored that it was my camera and it was all my old pictures and it was amazing. I just couldn't believe it had floated so far, so long ago and the memory card was still intact," said Scallan.

    China Airlines has offered to fly Scallan to Taiwan to be reunited with her camera, but she isn't sure if she can take time off from work since she just started a new job a week ago.

    "Brought back some good memories, and some pictures I'd forgotten I'd taken. It was great. I'm curious to see what else was on there," said Scallan.

    No surprise... RiceHigh's prediction of a Pentax K-3 FF announcement today has failed.
    He has revised it to April 17th

    But! From what I've picked up the K-3 is likely to be announced in April, but as a APC-C camera, and FF not until near the end of the year.

    Warning: This post only make sense to Pentaxians

    Incredible. If Canon don't make mileage out of that I'd be very surprised.

    I'm just eager for a new piece of tech that I won't be able to afford until the next new bit of tech comes out! (and even then the Finance Control Officer will Tear strips off of me)
