Re: My life sucks

Victor, sorry about what happened. I know that is tough to handle. I have about $20,000 of equipment and no special insurance for it. I have thought maybe my homeowner or auto policies might cover it but reading this thread has made me want to seek out some insurance specifically for my equipment.

I at least treat all my equipment as gold-plated investment, I have worked hard for it so I do whatever I can to protect that, if you are on a students budget like Victor and expensive equipment, which he probably had to save a longer time for, gets damaged, that hurts for sure.
I agree with Noa. I personally invested in my EX1R (by pulling tons of strings) and the loss of it would mean my life would be over. Seriously. I can only invest in something this big once being jobless at the moment and being a fresh graduate.

Hilarious! In my opinion, it takes him 3 full seconds longer than it should to pull out his right arm (with the L lens/camera). Wouldn't your first instinct be to raise the equipment from the water?

Start with your auto insurance agent (especially if he also writes your homeowner policy) and ask for scheduled personal items coverage. Be honest about use (personal or business/trade). State Farm sold me a policy for about $8,000 worth of personal photo and video gear for $1.70 per $100 valuation annual premium.

Coverage is for loss, but not "wear and tear". Theft, physical damage, fire etc. losses are covered. I had to provide sales invoice to show purchase cost and that is what I'm covered for. Since I deal mostly with B&H I was able to go back a few years and download copies of invoices I had misplaced. I also had to provide a list of items including serial numbers.

Check with your agents.

Re: My life sucks

okay guys here are some updates. The camera shop try to repair it with parts sent from Canon, but the parts didn't fit. They try twice, and it still didn't fit. So they sent it to Canon. Canon fix it and sent it to the camera shop which sent it to my employer. Why he didn't just send it to Canon in the first place I don't know. But now I owe him about $750...
