Wow, you've just confirmed to me that putting a rider on my insurance policy for my equipment was a smart idea.

My dog cost me over $2,500 in vet bills last year. If you buy another 50D for $1,250, we'd be close to even, but you'll have another new camera, and I'll just be poorer (though my dog is worth every penny).

Not sure if this suggestion has been posted before, but normally if you buy stuff with credit card, it would have a 90 days accidental coverage. I have it with my citibank platinum credit card, but they do said that the homeowner or renter insurance policy has precedence. I made a claimed once for my cell phone where I damaged the LCD by banging it against a desk corner. I need to get a repair estimate, and they paid for the repair cost.

Straying WAY off topic, but you can get insurance for the dog too -- helps ease the pain of those vet bills.

Actually, bringing it back on topic, I think our dog insurance would have covered him knocking over someone else's camera (but not mine).
