Does anyone have any relevant experience with insuring a camera package worth about 50k? Good providers/bad providers etc? I don't know much about it, but i believe i want general insurance against loss/theft. Any recommendations would be great! Thanks.

I have always gone through film emporium for insurance. From what I can tell, there is rarely any variation on premiums, since they all are underwritten by the same companies. Usually what varies is broker fees, and even then it doesn't vary more than a few percent here or there. Just find a company that is geared towards film making. Note that I have never filed a claim, so I don't know how well they handle that if something were to come up.

Try Dewitt Stern. I have my Steadicam and lighting package insured through them as well as a rider for any rentals I need to get.
