Pro camera insurance USA, besides State Farm??
« on: November 09, 2011, 03:56:57 PM »
I need to get my camera stuff insured again. I did have State Farm, and they were awesome. I got my bag swiped at the end of a filming trip in Peru. State Farm covered me 100% and was great.

However, since I made a claim, they won't insure me again. I don't blame them.

So aside from State Farm, what camera insurance would you guys recommend in the United States? I need professional insurance since I work in Television in Los Angeles, and I don't want any misunderstanding by using something like a Home Owner's carryover.

Thanks for any advice.

I have all my gear attached to my homeowners as an additional rider.... I have allstate.  They have like 2 levels of coverage if i remember right... one was cheaper and covered theft and such but it kinda had to be "within the home" and then they had an itemized one where it's 0 deductible and covered mysterious disappearance and such... My 5D2 and 24-105 alone was like $80 for 6 months extra and the rest of my gear also was added for I think maybe $120 for 6 months?  Not too bad... I think if you rent you could add that onto your renters insurance... 
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.
