    They might allow u to swap CFs though. I guess.

    actually, that canon staff had went all out for photogs to try their gear already, yet this kinda stuff happen...

    those cameras are initally locked onto the tripod with a long plate that holds both the lens and the camera onto the plate (i dont use tripods myself, i dont know what tripod they're using..)

    Oh dear, hope they had insurance to cover the theft. It might be difficult to trace owner as not everyone register or service their cameras at the agent. The exhibitor may want to check serial number with all alternative service centres and 2nd hand shops and give out the 20D as a reward for successful recovery.

    actually tracing the finger print on the 20D also quite hard
    because the canon guy only discover the 20D on the 300mm after one guy ask him if he can swap cf card.
    i guess it's full of finger print from dunno how many ppl already.
    there are quite a number of ppl know of the incident, not sure any of them is CSer.

    btw the 20D had an all red color strap.

    bsed on the way the mkIII was used as a machine gun, shutter count will be at closer to 10K

    I was there too, i think the security was pretty slack. I mean if u have tens of thousands of dollars worth of eqpt, shldn't they at least pay someone say $10/hr just to keep watch?? If it really was stolen, wonder how come no one from the crowd noticed also. They shld coz ppl were queuing to try out the lens.

    Posted my thoughts on the event here...I was there too at abt that timing and was around when they noticed the 20D with the red colored worn strap on the 300mm f2.8 IS instead of the 1DMk3, saw the guy in charge of the staff (wearing white polo T I think) nearly panicked and started jumping around asking his staff wether they saw the missing body or not. I'm not sure what eventually happened, when I left about 6.15pm I think I still saw the 20D still sitting on the 300mm f2.8.

    If I'm not wrong, at the public 5D/1DIIN launch at Rasa Sentosa about 2 years back, one of the MkIIN bodies was stolen IIRC.

    Yes they should have employ some security staff around, especially to keep an eye near the tryout section where all the big lenses and Mk3 bodies were...those were some $200k++ worth of equipment there... The Mk3 bodies on the big lenses were not secured or tethered at all, anyone could have easily swapped bodies and no one could have noticed anything.

    Check out the Serial Number in 20D and check the Canon warranty system see if got contact info.

    Then blacklist the MK III serial number and if that guys stupid stupid go and clean his cam, then lock up the service centre door and arrest him

    Sample equipment of less values have a chain tied to them when they are handson by visitors....dunno why camera cannot be chain up?

    I remmebered going to exhibition showing handphones, got chain or wire tied to phones. Phones are way cheaper than cam....maybe no one think people can just pocket the big cam

    anyway, that seller who sold this ******* that 20D would almost probably have his number or at least contacted this ******* before. if trying hard enough, the thief confirm will be caught!
    Not if he bought it via CashConverter. They only track seller and not buyer.

    I attended a Canon 30D introduction seminar before...they have all manner of canon cameras for show and for testing too.
    All those cameras are chained to the display case for added security

    Reminds me of a hifi exhibition. An expensive power cord was discovered missing from its wooden box after an amplifier was hooked up for a potential customer to audition.
