Insurance for my 5D2

Anyone any good leads in the UK? It will have to cover international travel.

Cheers

Howdy Wayne,

Start with this thread: http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/taking-ca...on-thread.html

Somewhere within our Taking Care of Business forum I thought we had a discussion specific to UK insurance...

You might check with your home insurance carrier... they will insure camera equipment with
a special rider...

also, a good source for insurance on camera equipment is with Scuba Dive Equipment Insurance companies... DAN is one.. there are others, just google Scuba Dive Equipment
insurance..

In the US I was able to buy something called a "marine rider" with my normal liability insurance for my studio. It covers laptops, lenses, everything I take on location. Includes dropping it or being stolen. I use State Farm, but again in the US.

State farm in Canada for me - just a rider on my home owners but it only costs about 200 a year for about 30K of equipment.

Just make sure that you aren't using ANY of the gear for "business" purposes, otherwise you'll find out the hard way that you actually aren't covered by your homeowners despite the rider and extra cash.

Good point Bill,

that's why I went for the business user's 'All Risk' policy including worldwide cover. I figred since I was paying for 'some' insurance, might as well make sure I was completely covered.
