Sadly, my whole bag of gear was stolen shortly after this with almost $18,000 lost and no insurance. I had sold everything to buy a sailboat and do an adventure travel show from LA to Australia over 6 months and shoot a ton of still as well. The theft kind of killed my budget and after a few more setbacks, I had to bail on the trip. Anyone want to buy a boat?
Still don't have another camera and almost throw up when I think of my gear, see shots I want to take or people with their cameras. So pretty much constantly.
Protect your gear and make sure you have proper insurance when traveling.
