Thread: Cam shop in SLS burgled

  1. #1

    Default Cam shop in SLS burgled

    saw on TV just now that a shop lost more than $100k worth of DSLRs over thursday night.

    apparently the thieves knew what they wanted and were only interested in the bodies and batteries and nothing else. even the boxes are left behind....

    the shopowner must be feeling damn helpless....

    exactly, maybe if they sell off the cams at ridiculously low price to offset the incompleteness....

    They should post a list of serial numbers here on CS to thwart the sale of the stolen merchandise.

    Are we going to support such act by buying from them? Just like some people we stole the MD form Seagate and sell it. Are we going to buy because it is cheap without questioning how they get their stuff?

    for all we know, the burglars may have already sold off the cameras to 2nd hand shops before the TV announcement

    Haha they were mentioning that in jest...

    Stolen goods are usually exported where they fetch a better price among less discerning customers.... Singaporeans are just too fussy (for a good reason)...why no box? why no charger? Where's the manual? Aiyoh liddat I want discount oredi....

    In most SEA countries, they'll just buy outright no questions asked.

    Besides it'd be pretty stupid to advertise stolen goods here in CS, or anywhere in S'pore for that matter. Insurance companies hire PIs esp if its a large consignment.

    And SPF actually offers rewards if you can provide info that leads to the arrest of such culprits... something like 10% of the value of the goods.

    wonder what the reason for not taking the boxes.. and batteries? wtf????


    i would've gone for the lenses ...

    small L primes would be the target here.

    highly expensive + highly portable.

    imagine carrying a 600 f/4 through changi airport and not raising suspision.

    better yet... 50 1.0 (if the shops has ) or 85 1.2

    I would have gone for:

    70-200 L f2.8IS
    135 f2L
    300mm f2.8L IS
    16-35mm f2.8L
    24-70mm f2.8L

    and maybe a 5D body...

    Could be insider job. Maybe the thieves use it for their own. I will not buy stolen goods because if the thieves were caught, you will have to return the goods and yr $$$$ gone. Furthermore you would also commit an offence for keeping stolen goods

    Maybe you should also say when and where you want the goods to be delivered?
