Re: Dire Warning To Photographers !!!

This is an unfortunate story, but I question that it was a baggage handler or an airport employee and that they "knew" what was inside. To me, that is speculative on the part of the documentary filmmaker (not a stills photographer) who had his gear stolen. Here's a link the story.

My take on this is that it was a random theft and not targeted for the camera gear. This bag was seen circling the baggage carousal and not claimed; and then found empty in the parking garage. I think an unclaimed bag was stolen (by who knows?) and that particular thief got lucky and found camera gear inside instead of used clothing.

How sad it is that the lessons we learn cost so much.
