I just wanted to share this amazing story of the known Norwegian nature photographer Audun Rikardsen and how he lost (and found) a DSLR camera trap due to a polar bear in Svalbard.

I have had a camera trap destroyed by polar bears myself - without getting the nice images that Audun got!

It is in norwegian but you may be able to google translate it!

Amazing story!

Google translate works pretty well on this page but will still leave a little to your imagination.

With the Chrome browser, you right click on an area with text and chose "translate to english" from the menu.

Fascinating story -- and outstanding photos from the recovered memory card.

Reminds me of a friend's account of falling in a stream at minus 10 degrees, having to go back in to retrieve his SLR camera from the bottom and then having to walk several miles to shelter -- his clothes and the camera were frozen (not to mention himself) but the images on the film were fine.

I didn’t really need the words. The story is well told in the snippets of video and the three resulting photos from the dunked camera. The first of those was my favorite and well worth the loss of a body and the deployment of an ROV (handy to have access to one of those too).

And, great example of how robust SD cards really are.
