Have you ever been mugged for your camera

A pal of mine is an avid street photographer & while out yesterday round town he was approached by 2 young men that pulled a knife on him in broad daylight & a very pubic place & demanded his camera.

He reckons that these 2 lads had been following him for a while but thought nothing off it, waiting for the right moment.

Luckily that day he only took his Canon 350D & a 50mm F1.4 as he had an apointment with the doctors, so to pass some time he decided to take above with him for some quick snaps.

And on this occasion he left his 5D Mk II at home.

He now wondering if it worth bothering about doing Street anymore, as it just not a safe place to carry expensive gear about.

As he pretty shaken up over all this as, he never been in this kinda situation before.

So have you ever been in this kind of situation yourself?
