Ratings and Reviews
Don't waste your time or money
First, this app does nothing the web site doesn't do. But that's not saying much, because the app and the web site are a complete waste of your time and money if you are foolish enough to pay for the "pro" (LOL) version.
The problem is that this site does nothing. The one-man-show doesn’t even respond to support tickets for months. Heck, there’s not even a way to mark an item of yours as not stolen if you recover your items. The site purports to search the web looking for images with your gear’s EXIF data, but it does no such thing. It purports to protect your images by searching for unauthorized use of them, but it doesn’t do that, either.
It’s just a crude database with a poorly-designed interface that collects your camera info. This don’t-quit-your-day-job operation over-promises and under-delivers on the hope that you’ll pay for an annual subscription of snake oil.
Easy to use
I really will not know how good this app is until (hoping not) my gear is unwillingly separated from me, but it was easy to add my camera gear and the corresponding serial numbers.
I love that they make you take a photo of your SN to prove the authenticity, plus track the location 😎.
There could be. More explanation on how to enter your equipment names, but there are suggested ones that automatically pop up that you can modify to meet your needs.
Can't wait to see if any of my photos come up on the web. Cool feature, but not sure how well it will work, until it finds something.
This app is just some peace of mind that I hope I never need to use.
Doesn't work as claimed
Company claims they've recovered stolen goods but no hard evidence except for claimed statements. I recently had my camera and lens stolen but I still had images from my stolen setup. Gave it a go and tested out by uploading images to popular online image hosting websites and made sure images had all appropriate exif data embedded in the files. Gave it a good 3 weeks and zero notifications on my test images.
Happy to take a look at what's up (free accounts take a month to get alerts so three weeks might not have been enough. Also 500px and Flickr are now stripping EXIF data, so those're out). Just email firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, we've helped users recover tons of stuff but it's self-service since Lenstag is run just by one guy (me).
And there have been enough recoveries I can't seem to get press anymore in the photographer blogosphere so there isn't a lot of third party stuff out there. Anyhow, here's the last photo blog article I was able to get:
Lenstag even recovered a user's lens from the town I live in last year. Here's a newspaper article about it:
Anyhow, sorry the experience was poor for you but it's great for lots of other people so I'm happy to help fix it for you. I do have a demanding day job, too, so I can get behind a bit running Lenstag since it's just me.
