This thread highlights the difficulty some members have in obtaining insurance coverage for camera gear. Like the OP in that thread, I discovered the Nikonian group got together with an insurance carrier and now offer coverage to members.

If we got enough POTN members together, would this be a viable business idea for POTN? Obviously, it would require a large number of members for any insurance carrier to be interested. Or we could contact the Nikonian group and see if they would be willing to divulge how they went about creating their insurance offering.

Just a thought.

Gear: Kodak Brownie and homemade pin-hole cameras. Burlap sack for a bag.

It is a good idea.

My camera insurance company here (external link) has an affiliate link that could be used to get income for POTN and a discount code for POTN could help members. …/showthread.php​?t=1203740

I got my insurance through the NZIPP, that and other benefits make it worth joining your local professional organisation. If you're not a professional it probably doesn't matter so much, put it under your contents insurance and make sure it's specified and covered for its full replacement value.
