I put this in weird and fun, but it's almost definitely anti-fun. I was on a vacation this weekend and had my D300 swiped! I'm not looking for anyone's pity, but I was wondering if anyone has had experience with this that could give me tips of steps to take when something like this happens.
Here's what I've done (in order of appearance):
1. Filed police report.
2. Ordered new camera (D90, which should tide me over until I get the D700 update that I was waiting for, at which point it can be retired as my backup)
3. Started homeowners'/renters' insurance claim process.
4. Looked to see if there's any way to search for the camera's serial number in the metadata of any pictures that get posted online (there's not).
5. Borrowed a D90 until I get my new one.
My main question is this: does anyone know whether the h/r insurance will cover this? It seems plausible to me since photo equipment is exactly what I had in mind when I listed total property values on the insurance application. I'm just wondering if there will be trouble because it wasn't at the insured location when it was stolen. Has anyone had first-hand experience in a similar situation?
Also, does anyone have any other ideas for tracking it down?
Thanks in advance for any help. I'm just glad one of my least expensive lenses was on at the time (the 35mm 1.8) and that they didn't take my whole bag (basically, I thought it was in the bag with me in the motel when it was actually in the car that it was taken from).
