Hi,

Iíve got a question. Have you ever insured your camera? I would like to insure my Nikon D50, but I have no idea which company I can trust. I found some leaflet of "E&L Insurance" in "Photography Monthly" and I think theirs offer looks quite reasonable. Have you heard about this company?

I can't tell you if they are any good but it is also something that I am looking at. Their name has been mentioned to me a few times from friends and other websites.

I would stay away from E&L (Equine & Livestock!) Don't think i can say why on this forum but take my word for it if you will. i have just insured my equipment with Photoguard. Very happy. A little more expensive than E&L but worth it for peace of mind.

I once asked about E+L from other photographers, nearly every one told me to stay away from them!
they suggested an insurance company to me but my memory isnt working at the moment, it will come to me.

Also check your home insurance, see if you can add your gear to it.

I have found that the best assurance of insurance is two in one. I have my camera and equipment covered for loss or theft by my house insurance covering it in or out the home. I also then have Jessops camera insurance which gives me any damage cover i need. Although the repair time is not the fastest with jessops (taking up to 4-6 weeks) i know that it does work well as i have personal experience with the service.

i'm struggling to find decent camera insurance for kit that I store in the car (about 10k's worth). So far I haven't found many options. I have tried Camera Insurance but this is the same old insurers you see everywhere. E & L and Photoguard. Are they any good?

I have a second hand sony A100 with a 18-70mm macro lens, and I'm happily experimenting with what I can do. I'm really impressed by the fact i can get good pictures of teh children without sticking the camera up their noses! we also have a Canon Ixus 70, which is a wonderful compact camera (I love it, it's brilliant) which is perfect for keeping in a pocket for capturing a great moment. I'm hoping to turn semi pro at some point, so all ideas and constructive criticism is very very welcome!

My father in law has just been looking into this before his holiday in South America, and his household policy covers, without having to make any changes to it, all his camera equipment, with each individual piece up to £1000, but a total cover limit (ie if you have to replace the lot because it got stolen or fell off a plane or something) of £4000. As that is the standard I suspect that given suitable notice, quotes etc they would probably up the level of cover by including photographic stuff as a listed set of items on the policy, the same as if ou have a particularly valuable item of jewlery.
