 Camera ADH Insurance worthwhile?
Opinions on ADH insurance for camera / lens?

Experience with Sagemax or bestbuy?

I'm looking to upgrade my camera, dithering a little on the ADH insurance question.

I'm pretty careful and all, but hiking does carry some added bang-and-bounce potential....

Except for the "I'm pretty careful" statement, the rest is true for me. I'm now down 3 cameras do to carelessness while hiking with them. I may be uninsureable. 8)

Almost anyplace can be dangerous... Day 1 on a trip to Mexico dropped my little camera in the sand... never worked again. It wasn't expensive but.... thank goodness I had my Canon Digital SLR... That I didn't drop in the sand.

I would like a better little camera for good pics in the mountains, the SLR is to freaking big to carry, but it takes awesome pics!

I carry the Canon Rebel T2i with the 2 battery extra large grip, usually in my hand but around my neck on the strap if I need my hands to climb. The 55-250 lense is always with me too but usually in the pack. Before that it was the Rebel XSi with the same setup and before that it was just digital point and shoot and last century it was always a Canon SLR and a video camera.

I love the DSLR/SLR's and their pics and have never carried insurance on them, probably because it never crossed my mind. They have taken some tumbles and falls but so far proved too tough to break. Probably just lucky there and now that I think about it if I bought them at a store like Best Buy that offered a replacement plan I'd actually buy it, depending on the cost of course. Not a bad little investment to cover a camera set up that costs at least $1500.00 to replace but mine came from Sams Club and they didn't offer the protection plan. If it was just a couple hundred dollars for a good point and shoot I'd still skip it, but knowing what mine has been through and that I'm probably lucky everything still works I think it would be a very good investment for a DSLR.
