    Yes, its quite true. Petty crime is quite rampant there, esp around the tourist hot spots. You should travel with your cam stuff well disguised with gaffer and use an ordinary old bag.

    As for insurance for your cam.. I'm not aware of anyone who sells camera specific insurance in spore.

    Just make sure that you properly secure your bags.

    I have walked around Rome with my old 1D Mark 2 all for the whole of Rome to see before. Nothing happened to me.

    Also just make sure that your belongings are in difficult to reach places.

    Don't bring a wallet but put your credit cards and IDs in a small card case and carry cash on you.

    That is what I would do.

    Good luck.
