I was fortunate enough to receive an award from my university to visit China this summer. I am very excited about going, especially because of the photographic opportunities. As far as I know, most of my time will be spent in urban areas. One concern I have is that my camera might get damaged or stolen. I talked to some Chinese friends of mine and they all told me my camera might be a good target for thieves. They also mentioned that it might get damaged in the large crowds of people. I will be bring a Canon Rebel 450D along with a Canon 28-135 IS USM lens. I'm also getting a wireless remote such as the ML-L3 while I'm over there. For people who have photographed in China, should I be that worried? Is it safe to bring this camera? Finally, can I get it insured and if so, is it a good idea?
