Don't Forget to Send Descriptions to lostfound@ . . .

Yes, please--post here on ePlaya about your missing camera. Here's what else you can do, from the main site:

Items found in Black Rock City are not "playa gifts" to keep nor to give to anyone other than their rightful owners. At Burning Man, participants turn in found items to Playa Info so that they might be returned to their owners. After the event, whether you have lost or found something, there are some steps you can take to facilitate "happy reunions":

Send descriptions to lostfound(at)burningman(dot)com. Don't be vague or general in your descriptions: complete make, model, and color information will have the most success. Act quickly. Our official found items return efforts end when ticket sales begin in mid-January for our next Burning Man.

So--send them an email, as well as making an ePlaya post. And consider joining the Jack Rabbit Speaks Burning Man newsletter, which annually posts a selection of representative photographs from the dozens of cameras recovered post-event.

More tips (and the link to the Jack Rabbit Speaks newsletter) are available here: ... standfound

The best of luck to you. :)

Has anyone received an actual response from emails sent to them?

Give them time. It can take up to 1-2 months before they get all the found stuff sorted & replies out (there is a lot of found stuff every year)

Make sure you're signed up for the Jack Rabbit Speaks email list, it will help keep you informed of not only lost & found but everything Burning Man.
