ImagePrint 6 Notes
Thursday September 2, 2004
by Mitch Alland

I am pleased to see that the new ImagePrint manual for v6 is a great improvement over earlier versions and is, in fact, excellent. The extensive Troubleshooting Guide section is a good addition. Also, as program installation has been simplified, I believe that most questions on IP problems that come up on online forums can now be answered by suggesting, in the best Unix tradition, that the user "look it up in the manual...." These notes are based on ImagePrint 6 build 1.08. If you are using a later build some of the issues and glitches discussed below may have been fixed, as ColorByte is aware of all of them.

AuthorSubject: Photo equipment insurance   [Go to Bottom of Page]

Has anyone successfully got photographic insurance under the following kinds of conditions:

1. I have my own business, operating as a corporation.
2. It is not a full time photographic studio, but I use the camera gear as part of the business.
3. I have about $30K of Nikon gear (I *can* stop buying it any time I want to. Honest. :) )
4. I am the only person who touches the photography gear.
5. I would like to get coverage for both the USA, Canada and, occasional trips to the UK.
6. I have had no insurance claims in the past fifteen years.
8. My home and office are in a good part of town, low crime, and we all use good quality ammo. :)

I cannot, for the life of me, seem to get insurance. My home-owner's insurance company won't touch because, of course, the gear is owned by the company. The corporate insurance company _will_ insure it but at a premium of 12% per annum ($3,600 for those who daren't do that calculation!). None of the "big" insurance (Chubb, Aetna, Aon, Farmers, State Farm) companies seem to want to go near it.

I've tried contacting the Professional Photographer's Association's group insurance, but the folks who are the agent for this group policy cannot seem to grasp the idea of "please send me a copy of the actual policy (but not another #@$@#$g application form) so that I can see the terms of the policy," so I cannot yet determine whether they will cover equipment in Canada or the UK.

Right now I have two options:
1. Not insure the gear (ie self-insure).
2. Not take it on trips (which seems counter-productive).

I'd very much appreciate any expert wisdom on how best to proceed.

Thanks in advance
