    Who has insurance for their camera gear?

    Just thought it would be interesting to know the percentage of members with or without camera gear insurance.

    Is your camera equipment insured?

    1. Yes
    2. No
    3. Never thought about it.
    CC are always appreciated.

    Yes. It is no different to my car, house or contents, it has a value and and as such is insured.

    Wouldn't let it out of the house if I didn't.
    New gear got covered the day it arrived.
    New iPhone turned up the other day and it and the tripod need to be added. Thanks for the reminder.
    Re Rick. My camera gear is worth more than my car now!

    Mine is covered under my contents insurance, I have accidental breakage and loss coverage (Australia wide). I have been burnt by not being insured before, so now I go overboard with insurance.

    Yes, only because of the significant investment. If I had a couple of $thousand, I wouldn't likely bother, but when I sit down and add up what it all costs, it even surprised me how much I spent on this stuff.

    Vehicles and my plane aside, it is my most expensive hobby by a mile.

    I have added all my gear to my home and contents insurance under "specified portable valuables". Covers them for anything (well anything I can think off!) anywhere in the world.

    Yes! Just make sure you have it covered for as a 'portable' specific item in your contents insurance.

    Yes. Covered by my home and contents policy. But after the fiasco I've just been through with a car insurance claim I'm going back to read all the fine print and ask some more questions.
    Attitude is everything!

    Personally this is something i really need to look into. eek. Anyone that knows me might be shocked to know my stuff is not insured.

    Is it worth starting a new thread or should we just all share who we actually have insurance with here.
    And a rough idea of the cost and the amount insured.

    Brodie, i insured with RAC under my contents. I am insured for anywhere in Australia only.
    loss, damage and (theft from home). From memory it cost approx $200 per year for me to insure $9,000.00 worth or gear.

    Yep as most above, insured with my home contents, accidental and away from home.
    I can't afford to replace my gear if anything was to happen to it, be it my fault or not .
