    I am Upset

    Last week Thursday some lowlife (ves) gained access to our house, took my wife's jewellery and all my cameras, lenses and filters. Left the laptop which was on the table in the same room as where the camera equipment was kept. Looks like insurance will replace the camera equipment but not the jewellery. I am still pissed off!!

    As Ice abuse (there is no such thing as a drug user, they are all drug abusers) increases, the rate of these crimes is going to increase. IMO we need to stop treating drug abuse as a social issue and return it to a criminal one.

    Also be careful that once you replace stuff, you are not targeted again. Who ever did it could well be watching, knowing that in a few weeks there is a whole new batch of stuff in your home.

    I don't blame you and sorry it happened. Glad that the insurance will at least cover your camera gear.

    I'd feel a bit more empathy if you were a bit more involved here.
    And of cause your circumstance sucks.

    Somewhat surprised they're not replacing the jewellery, why not? When the same thing happened to us, the Insurance company were brilliant and paid up in full for everything, even for jewellery we could only evidence by showing them pictures of my wife wearing it.

    Anyway my sympathy, and I hope you lose little if anything. Even so, the whole business is a total pain in the neck, isn't it?

    I know you like to support this site, but saying your empathy for someone's circumstances depends on how many posts they've made to an Internet forum seems.......odd, at best.

    Thanks Mark. I feel a lot better now!

    Did not add the jewellery as additional to house contents. Don't ask me why I did not do it! Looks like all camera equipment will be replaced.

    No worries.
    Sorry about my previous post. Not on top of the world ATM either.
    Still hoping you can get a bit more involved here though.

    The good news is that all my camera equipment is being replaced. The D5100 is being replaced with the D5600, the rest of the equipment being replaced with what I had. I am happy as all I wanted was to be in the same position (equipment wise) that as I was before the burgulary. Expected delivery on Monday!
