    Someone passed you a hearsay "news". And you passed it on.... and on.......... and on.............

    Personally I will have no problem showing my cameras in their full glory in the places you plan to visit.

    Should be quite safe. I was there for a week. People a just curious looking at it but they don't bother at all. Many other tourists even have expensive cameras and they just snap happily away.

    上有天堂,下有苏杭。

    Dunno whether u can see the chinese characters above. Anyway, loosely translated, it means that suzhou & hangzhou are comparable to heaven above.

    Since u'll be going hangzhou, bring whatever gear u have to capture the heavenly scenery, man!

    Ok just came back from china

    seems like nikon is very agressive on advertising in china - hangzhou + shanghai saw so many nikon adverts buses, posters even their magazines!!

    Went to Huang Long Bai Huo 环龙百货 (Take exit 4 from the Shanghai MRT, when you come out the building is right above you.)

    Pretty quiet compared to peninsular considering that it was a Saturday. Couldnt find any matin straps but managed to get a couple of other items.

    1 x Velbon RUP-43 Monopod
    4 x 22" 5 in 1 reflectors (None seemed to carry the 42" ones)

    On the other hand, I will be able to organise MOs soon as my uncle is able to contact the factory directly in hangzhou

    Yes! It is dangerous for you to bring your DSLR. It is a lot safer in your dry box locked up. While you are there, you might forget to take it away, and present it as a gift to the cleaners. Or the precious DSLR might slip from your hands and hit the concrete. The straps might break while you are cruising on Westlake. And the pickpockets might just decide your DSLR might be something worth stealing and risk incurring the draconian punishment if they are caught.

    I was very careless! I showed my DSLR everywhere! I put my DSLR on the buses floor. Oh, I also forgot to say that I also had my Canon 1V with the very rare Angenieux zoom lens. My Canon 1V did not received special treatment.

    Thankfully despite the abuse I gave my cameras, they came back with me safely.

    Then I took my DSLR on a trip to Tuscany. This time partnered by a Leica R6.2. The cameras went with me walking into hotsprings and climbing slippery slopes. I made some some lovely photos which I showed on CS.

    Thankfully they survived

    And this Friday they will join me again in Beijing.

    I love China, there seemed to be guards/police along the whole length of the Nanjing street all the way to the Bund....in Shanghai. I walked alone at 4am to catch the sunrise in the early spring....similarly in Beijing, i explored the Wang Fujing areas into the back alleys....in the early mornings.....and late at night....some shots can be seen at my pbase gallery:

    http://www.pbase.com/dannytoh/beijing&page=all

    ...what one should be more careful would be pick pockets, not outright confrontational kind of muggers.....seemed like the police there get real tough on such criminals if they try to touch the tourists.....think the upcoming Olympics has something to do with their desire to make China Tourist-safe...bring
    Will be going to Kunming mid-Jan......my gears would be my main luggage.....just my view for others who are planning trips to China.
