Every equipment owner and shooter has at times been worried that their gear could be stolen. Thieves are very saavy and know that a small bag with a camera and a few lenses could potentially be worth several thousand dollars.
Lenstag is an anti-theft gear registry that helps people recovered stolen gear. They ran data for all of 2015 on the theft that was reported about gear and their registry and broke down exactly where camera camera is stolen the most.
It’s no real surprise that the number one place camera equipment is stolen is a car. Lenstag said that rental cars in particular are singled out by thieves, so be extra vigilant when you are traveling.
Other interesting tidbits from the Lenstag stolen gear data includes countries with the most reported theft (USA, UK, Italy) and the most stolen gear (5D Mark III, 5D Mark II, Canon 24-70mf/2.8L).
