How do you protect your gadgets?
« on: June 18, 2010, 07:45:07 AM »
hello everybody!

i would like to know how do you protect your camera and its gadgets inside and outside of your house in case of loss, damage or stolen? when on the go, its obvious what is inside when we carry our camera bags and it is very attractive to the eyes of the bad guys. do you insure your camera just like what a local insurance company offers? or carry some self protection gadgets to defend and fight for your precious things?

just asking your ideas.

thanks!

never leave your camera inside the car unattended. If you must, place it inside the trunk. Uso kasi mga bukas kotse gang.

When you go out to take pictures, especially if you're unfamiliar with the place. Better bring along a friend or join group photoshoots. Stay away sa mga lugar na maraming snatcher/holdaper.

thanks sir!

but what if walking alone from one area to another and can't really avoid to be alone? nowadays, we can not identify who are the good from the bad guys.

I suggest one should refrain from traveling or shooting alone specially in public...  Criminal elements are everywhere and our dslr gears are known to be expensive... Lone photographers in public are soft targets for these criminal elements...

Just recently a holdup crime was commited in manila where the victim was standing just in front of his residence....  The criminals spotted him wearing an expensive jewelry (necklace) and decided to hold up the victim.... The bad thing is the criminal shot the victim when he struggled to fight off these criminals...

And this happened in broad daylight and was captured in view of a CCTV camera...

Lets be careful... very easy to target young dslr photographers in public specially if they are alone... and carrying expensive dslr gear... 2.8 lenses... flash....  Be selective of where you shoot and if possible avoid traveling with your gears alone in public...

Please see video below...

there are a lot of ways you can protect your gears from elements.. bag, body armor, lens filters, soft/hard case etc etc.. but protecting your gears from thieves? is tough. specially hold-uppers, ok lang kung snatcher, basag koche, salisi gang, those types of thieves.. these kind of thieves are sneaky and fast.. some point good kasi hindi mo sila makikita, or tatakbo sila.. meaning they can't be a threat to your life.. pwera na lang pa hinabol mo.. hehe..

imagine being robbed inside your car, in front of your house, in broad daylight just like in that video..
there's no safe place or time for these kind of thieves -- they're everywhere.

i can only think two ways to protect ourselves and gear from this..

one, lets lock ourselves inside our house and never ever leave.. haha
two, firearms, fight fire with fire.. the con is you can lose your life..

its hard to protect something from something we dont know when and where will strike..
