Hello

What you can do anywhere is to mask Mark and number on the body with black scotch

And mask any mark on gear (yellow mark on neck strap)

that's minimal to go safe...

also you can change Nikon mark with Canon Mark, you wil get no problem anymore...

==> that's only joke !!    

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

I doubt it. Fully black cameras scream 'pro' photojournalist. Smart thieves would target those black boxes rather than the regular blingy cheap looking look.
