Why Your Camera Needs a Dogtag


After being separated from his owners, Bobbie the Wonder Dog walked 2,800 miles to get back home to them.

Cameras don’t do that.

If you lose your camera in some far-flung locale, it’ll need help from a good-hearted stranger to find its way home again.

Give it a leg up by attaching a dogtag with your name and address to your camera or neckstrap. Small metal or plastic ID tags only cost a few bucks, and you can get them made at any pet store.

It’s nice to depend on the kindness of strangers, but giving them a mailing address helps too.
