What kind of insurance are you talking about? Like personal articles from Allstate or a one-time deal?

Whenever I don't bring my DSLR with me, I regret it. So my advice is to bring it :)

Limit your gear. Just use one lens if possible. Saves you a lot of trouble.

Look into the Pacsafe protector sereis:

You can secure your equipment in the car trunk, or in the hotel room. Your equipment bag goes into the steel mesh Pacsafe bag, which is then cable/locked to something stationary in the room/car. Not 100% secure, but very little is 100%. It will be a deterrent to a quick grab and will give you some peace of mind.

I would have absolutely no hesitation. But my kit is insured.

I would bring it. Having owned many Canon cameras, I have found one universal commonality among them all. It appears they dont take pictures by themselves sitting in the floor of closets. Bring it!

bw!

So, that is what I have been doing wrong all these years....

Get insurance liek someone already mentioned. It is dirt cheap. That way you don't have to worry in life about these little things.

Are you talking about insurance specific to camera gear? If yes, which insurance is it?. The reason I am asking is I have renter's insurance. But it applicable only when the camera gear is in the house, I don't think it covers if somebody steals it outside of the covered house.

My kit is insured with my home contents policy. Here in the UK it is normal to cover things like camera equipment, sailing gear etc on these policies.

It can be. I ran into this nasty character when we were down there last month.

I read about this gator...he's been trained to specifically attack Nikon users. So since the OP shoots Canon, he should be safe.


Photographers do it in 1/1,000th of a second...but the memory lasts forever! ;)

I recently watched some tv show citing that crocs are now starting to reach 20' in length. :D
