It happened to me in Siena on my honeymoon, two guys came up to us as I was taking pictures and I gave one my old 2mp S100 to get a picture of us by a fountain, they seemed like nice enough guys, he took the camera and told us to smile then took off running with it. D'OH!!! His friend looked dumbfounded and he and I took off running after him and caught him and blocked the exit and the friend wrestled it from the guy and gave it back to me. His friend was P Od and started slapping the thief around. Just like Chevy Chases European Vacation movie when the guy runs off with the video camera.
