Sad Day

posted on 27th of july, 2012

I am sad to say that recently I was robbed of some of my camera equipment. I was relieved of my recently acquired camera bag containing some of my lenses, my D80 camera all my chargers, flash unit and Sony handycam video camera, a loss of +- R50.000-00 in Rand currency. Even sadder is the fact that I did not have these insured - and here is the lesson in this - so will not receive money back for this equipment and will have to fork out for new one's. Lesson learnt if its worth a lot to lose then insure it. I do hope that whoever stole these know what karma is and they get whats coming to them. There is some good news though, my new D700 and lens (24-85) and my 50-500mm Sigma lenses were not stolen as I could not fit them all in the same bag, so as sad as it is at least all is not lost :0) Happy days!!...

Hi Rozenn, no I have not had the time yet but it is a good suggestion, I have all the paper work and documents with details so can prove it was mine...

Patrick, yes there is a scurge in this country of second hand buyers, sad thing is I would have given more in cash to have the stuff back than they would get selling it to someone else or a porn shop.

I still have some stuff to work with and have recently been offered a Canon system for a good price, which I am still considering, so hopefully can carry on regardless of my loss :0)

So sorry for the loss. Fortunately your creativity can not be stolen, such people have no creativity. I hope soon recover the lost.
