STOLEN LENS: Who's Insurance is to Pay -- Production Co or Mine?
on Nov 24, 2008 at 6:46:37 pm

We had an HD lens stolen from us while on a doc project in Las Vegas.
I usually ask the production co for an insurance cert but didn't do so this time.

The lens was the standard lens the producer specifically asked to take from the truck while doing GV's of Vegas. I had the wide angle lens on and didn't actually use the standard lens. I was carrying the camera and tripod the producer the small pelican case with the standard lens in it. Sadly she put it down and set it down at a crowded intersection from where it quickly disappeared (we noticed two guys running away and then the lens was gone)

Somehow the production company now seems to think that maybe my insurance should cover this loss since they are renting my gear. How can I avoid that as I don't want my insurance to pay for their fault and my premium go up as a result?

Thanks for your advice
