Most household insurance packages will cover a basic camera kit only. This rarely extends beyond a DSLR and a couple of kit lenses, a tripod and maybe a bag. But we always need more gear right? A speedlight or two, remote triggers, a big telephoto lens and maybe even some video gear. That's what photographers do, right?
Insuring that ever growing pile of valuable gear will cost a packet in extended insurance premiums. Sure, this might be worth the (considerably) added expense if travelling, but at home there's a way to protect your kit without the need for costly insurance add-ons: buy a safe!
