They found the owner using Google+. The camera had been in the ocean for over a year. but the SD card survived and was used to help find the owner.

Oh, this is about that camera.    My first thought was "how did a cannon wash up on shore???"

(maybe I do need that second cup of tea to wake me up even more)
