    Hmm..
    I've only recently let people use my camera without me there, and I've already had cause to regret said policy.

    I usually give a my equipment is worth *$* amount your kidney is worth *$$$* ... I don't do change.. speech.

    I also have insisted on no shooting during rain whatsoever, unless an enclosure is rented, no using the camera for vehicle moving shots etc..

    Even that hasn't kept people from using my camera in "light" rain under an umbrella. (had to see those production stills on facebook)

    I think short of an insurance policy, some sort of contract, or constant vigil on set no one should touch your camera.

    As for the author, I don't know how I would react.. but I don't think it would be calmly...
    Whatever happened afterwards?
    Too many ideas, not enough time...

    I never let anyone use my camera unless it's me or if I am standing right next to the person and I have only done that once.
    I know this wasn't the question you were asking, but I would make him pay for it. It was his fault, he should pay for it.
    Good luck with getting it fixed.

    While we're on the subject, does anyone have any advice regarding a suitable insurance policy? Are there any companies that specialize in this area? I'm wondering if it would be covered under a Geico (or whatever) home insurance policy.

    I rented a DVX from someone here on the board and it was stolen from my car. Atleast I manned up and payed for what was lost so he could get a new camera. It was heartbreaking becuase at the time I didn't own a DVX and wanted to get one but had to pay for a replacement. Later on I got a DVX and have been loving it ever since..

    Jaime,

    I have AAA homeowners and added my DVXb (and other vid gear) to it. It's an "all risk", named value replacement (no depreciation) for $80/year. It even covers "mysterious loss", etc.

    I can't afford to buy another camera, but I can afford the insurance.

    Ken
