    Wow. Not a very nice introduction to a new area when you've just moved there.
    Hope everything works out for you. Knowing your serial numbers sure has to be a help with recovery etc.
    Do the Police notify places like Cash Converters of the serial numbers to look out for? If not, maybe just let them know to be on the look out. Hope the hard drive wasn't your only copy of any images.
    Good Luck with it.

    What a dreadful intro to the forum! Welcome anyway and hope you can at least get back the items you know the serial numbers for.

    Was much else taken?

    We work so hard to get all our gear and when I read this I almost cried for you. Hope you have some luck with recovery and perhaps put an add in the paper with your serial numbers. cheers

    I hope this has a good outcome for you. My daughter is very casual with security of her cameras etc - I should show her this thread. Good luck.
    Constructive critique of my photos is welcome and appreciated.

    Sorry to here of the theft of your gear. Just a bit of a pointer to others on this site who think they have there gear covered by house and contents insurance, check your policy, I think you will be very disturbed to find that you may only be able to claim a very small portion of camera gear if stolen, I think some where in the region of $1000, and if you loose what Richard has just lost you are still not going to recover for some time. My advice is to take out separate insurance on your gear. I have mine insured for theft loss and damage world wide and from memory I pay about $175 a year.

    A good point to raise about having separate insurance, specifically for your gear.
    I did it mainly for theft and also incase it gets damaged in some kind of car-related incident, as it's usually in the car with me on weekends/holidays etc.

    Most car insurance policies will only cover you for like $500 or thereabouts for items in vehicle, which is practically useless.

    I'm covered with Shannons for about 10k - everything is itemised, with serial no.'s etc.
    Costs me about $150 per year, so well worth having.

    Not gonna help the OP, but it could be a timely reminder to others who aren't insured yet, to get it asap.
