/ Stolen kit
Bit of a long shot, but I thought I'd post anyway, just in case. A friend of mine was robbed at knife point on Friday night, taking over £10k's worth of camera gear in Newtownabbey, near Belfast. He was covering the flag riots, but the robbery happened when he was away from them & unconnected as far as we know. He was most gutted by them nicking his cards before he could file, but at least he didn't get stabbed during it all.
If anyone does happen to see any of the kit on eBay, gumtree or anywhere, please let me know.
This is what was stolen:
Canon EOS-1D IV s.no 0630501671
Canon 5Dii s.no 1330804112
Canon EF70-200 f/2.8 IS II USM s.no 133037
Canon EF24 f/1.4 USM II s.no 3028083
Canon 580EXii s.no - TBC
Kingston 16GB CF cards x 2
Bloody hell, that sucks. I hope he had that amount of gear insured though. I've been worried about that kind of scenario walking home through Manchester with all my gear before, I know I could never afford to buy it all back without insurance.
Good luck getting it back anyway!
MJ - I've passed it onto him, it's a long-shot but thank you anyway :)
Stoo2k - He's insured, but just feels sick that kit that took him a very long time & a lot of work to accumulate has gone just like that. That and he doesn't want some thieving little scrote keeping his kit and/or money for it.
