So sorry to hear this Alan. Good luck with the insurers - they can be as bad as the robbers  >:(

The irony is that they won't know the value of the camera and lenses etc and sell them cheap. It's the same when tools get nicked.These low lifes sell a 400 pound drill for 20 quid. Lucky for some one else but not for me.

You have my uppermost sympathy Alan. It's frightening to think that they entered your property when you were in bed.  :o A confrontation might have led to some nasty consequences.
BOOZE!!! Helping ugly people have sex.

the worst of it is that the insurance are convinced we left the conservatory doors open and they may not replace the items >:(
we were in bed at the time

Have the police said the same ? why would they say this if not? afterall I presume you already have crime number.


Two things must be listed on the Police Report, point of entry and evidence of forced. Two red flags for an insurance co. I used to socialize with a Claims adjuster manager before the family moved away. Nice guy, had some funny stories and some interesting ones. But what became clear to me and has been confirmed over the years. The insurance co.'s will look for any excuse at all not to pay a claim. And they're worse than City Hall you can't fight them either.

So the question is-
was the door left open overnight ?
if so the insurance does become invalid. Its crazy because a theft still took place and a families personal space has been violated. There would have been a way around getting the claim verified but its too late for that now.
I know a chap who left his car running whilst he went into the paper shop. Of course it went missing within minuites and was found torched 3 days later.He never got a penny.

Unfortunately, with the insurance people it's more of case of, prove the door was locked. If you can't they'll say it was your carelessness.

Sorry to hear of your bad fortune Alan - I've had tools nicked out the back of my van before and there is no worse feeling than finding out that the insurance wont pay out on a genuine claim

The good(ish) news is that the CID found forced entry marks on the inside of the door where he said they use like a stiff metal coat hanger to flip the catches up once they have put enough pressure on the doors, so i hope this will help with the insurance co.

Terrible news Alan.  I hope you get this sorted out soon.

Do these digital cameras actually embed the serial numbers in the files somewhere so you can trace them if uploaded to the web.  If not they should.

Yes.  At any rate Nikons do.  I suspect most do.

Obviously save for web removes it....

i hope that whatever save for web is the scumbags don't know about it, but i would imagine it will be who ever they sell it to that will get caught out.

oddly enough, every picture taken has the cameras details embedded into the side car file.
Mine also have my name added as the author - but this can only be done with Canon software though i believe Nikon has the same offering.

That said, i do not think these details are searchable via the web - only when the picture is opened with suitable software that can read xmp files etc.

If you select 'All' in Lightroom's metadata panel it should show you the S/N of the camera directly under the Make. Or at least it does for all the Canon cameras that I have used. It's also available to view in IEXIF Viewer although it's highly improbable that you'll be able to locate an image taken with your camera from those posted on the web.

With the 7D (and probably other later Canon cameras) you now can add copyright/owner details directly from the camera itself which then appears in the EXIF data of all images taken with the camera.

so would i have to know that a snap was taken with my camera in order to check it?

simply put - yes! And you would need to be able to open the files details in Bridge, Aperture, LR, PSP or similar.
