I'm curious, why does masking the model and brand deter thieves?  Are they camera snobs who only steal certain makes and models?

I also think this is quite a laugh. if they knick it, I am sure they have no idea what they're taking.

Thieves know the value of items just as much as we do .  . ..  The higher the value of the item, the more easily (and profitably) it can be fenced.  If you had your choice of grabbing a D3100 or a D8100E, which would you target?

I was similarly concerned about London when we visited a year or so ago.  We walked all over the city and I never felt uneasy.  Just use common sense - The other thing that you quickly realize is that there are D800's,, D600's, D4's, 5D's etc. all over.  It's not like you are the only one carrying a camera.

Lovely city, BTW.
