lolwut? You think that's suppose to be a personal attack? I'm a little confused. Are you mad because I said the car was too little or too much?


The point was if it's enough to worry about, most people have insurance for that. Also that people use items all the time that's worth as much as a camera. Hell look at the engagement rings people wear around all the time.

And the VALUE of anyone's car have NOTHING to do with this conversation. Nice try troll.

It's okay to leave your camera equipments on the chair to go dancing if your gears are insured? Very similar to your insured car logic, whereas it is okay to leave your car in the parking lot. :rolleyes:

No- I leave it on the table

You are either lying, have friends looking over your stuff, or very trusting of strangers.

Pick one. :D

Leave the camera and lens at home. Bring the Mrs or a date. Have a few cocktails, dance, have fun. Thats my advise.

When we got married in 2000 we put those 35mm disposable cameras on the tables and encouraged guests to use them. We had a photographer. I don't uderstand the big deal about someone bringing their DSLR and taking shots. some folks are a little uptight I guess.

who doesn't want more pictures from their wedding? and free at that!

THIS -- we did the same at our wedding as did my wife's brothers at their weddings -- we had all the guests drop them in a bin at the end of the reception and had the pictures developed with some really great and memorable shots. And our pro did a great job delivering a quality package, and was willing to include some of our chosen shots from the disposable cameras in the albumn. I think some perspective has been lost in this thread.

As to the OP -- 6D + 24-105L sounds perfect.

His point is that just because it's not being watched doesn't mean it's not safe... I don't see why you're taking this so personally, take a chill pill...

I'd be perfectly comfortable leaving my camera at a table at a wedding. Enough people there would know you and know what your camera looked like that if they saw someone else with it they'd at least be able to tell you about it. Apparently you've been to some shady weddings or something...

I will say this OP, I'm thinking now (after a day at a theme park) that I'm going to sell my T2i and pick up an EOS-M or other mirrorless camera for occasions like this ;)

are you kidding? my camera is just as likely to be stolen as my wife's purse in the same scenario.... about 0%.

if you're that scared of owning gear, dont own it.

I took my DSLR to my cousins wedding a couple of months ago.. I tried to stay out of the way of the photographer as much as possible. He was actually all over the place and arguing with the videographer most of the time :)
The photographer was very cool.. didn't mind at all as long as I did not get into his shots, which I didn't.

I was in spots where the photographer was not so I got some unique shots. Also when the bride and groom wanted some pictures and the photographer was somewhere else they asked me.

Bottom line, the bride and groom really appreciated my pictures! I gave them mine within 48 hours of the wedding vs photographer was weeks later.
They framed several of them and a lot of the family wanted copies.

(It also gave me some entertainment instead of just sitting and eating.. I was there to have fun.. eat, socialize, dance, drink, but also enjoyed the chance to practice my photography)

If wedding photographers lock their gears up during receptions, what makes you any more safe leaving your stuff on the table while you leave to dance or socialize. :rolleyes:

As I said in my post, if you know ANYONE at the reception you have no reason to worry... people are their to unwind and have fun with friends and family, not to steal your gear.

Another offtopic comment. No, I have not gone to any "shady weddings," but all the weddings I've been to have 200-400 guests, where I probably know 10% of the guests. Why should I trust the remainder of the people?

The better question is why shouldn't you?

Because they are strangers?

Do you leave your front door wide open when you are not home?

i guess it's very trusting of strangers if i have to choose one of the three...i mean i know there are a lot of people that are paranoid about their gear...some won't take it to the beach because of sand...i'm not a paranoid person, but then again I've never had anyone steal anything from me...I've lost things before and had them returned to me...I've gone out of my way to return things to other people...

I've never even heard of anyone having anything stolen from a wedding...have you?

Personally no, but I have never seen DSLR's or purses left on tables either. :p
