camera....all gone.
« on: May 27, 2010, 09:06:15 PM »
over the last few weeks i've been snapping away at the birds in my garden and while i've been very busy with work family and wot-not i have been trying to find the time for photography. That's not a problem at the moment as some little scrote has broken into our home while my wife, middle daughter and i were a sleep and stole a few items, one of which were the keys to our car and my camera, now i find i have the time but no camera, i'm seriously pissed off.

Same thing happened to me about 15 years ago. That's when the insurance stumped up and I changed the FM to an F90. Ok, this was the days of film, but .... I still miss the FM.

Anyway, I know how you feel, commiserations.

the police aren't sure if they came for the car and took the hifi and camera or came for the hifi and then drove it off in my car....either way it sucks.

Now, every time the sun shines, your trigger finger will twitch.  :'(

Sorry about that, and if/when they are caught it will be a slap on the wrist!  >:( >:(

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

How awful for you.

I hope they find the people who did this and prosecute them.

You may need to trot down the CAB - your car insurers might prove difficult too.

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....

Alan, what a nightmare!

Fingers are crossed that it gets sorted - either the insurance coughs up or they catch the culprits.
