Amateur Photographer have released an article detailing some of the ways in which the public destroy their cameras. The details come from data which has been released by insurance group Domestic & General in the UK. It seems that around a sixth of us blame children or dog, 3% of claims run over their camera with a car, about three quarters drop their cameras, either onto a "hard surface", into water, or other wise damage the camera by falling onto it and using it to cushion their fall. The article is worth a read.
The online photographer has an interesting post which relates the experience Mike Johnston had with trying to get insurance for his photography gear and the questions it raised for him as a Photographer. It's well worth a read as it'll make you think seriously about taking care of your images. Pop on over to The Online Photographer.
