So I am just starting to purchase camera equipment and gear that I plan on using on different projects and wanted to buy insurance for it. Wanted to see what people recommended because I literally have no idea where to begin in terms of looking for insurance. Mostly I'll be either renting it to other operators/DP's I know for jobs, renting it out to jobs I work on, and for personal projects/short films. I would need something that covers gear up to $30,000 minimum but probably want at least $50,000 for equipment I plan on buying in the future. Also, I live and work mostly in the NY area but obviously I would prefer insurance that covers the equipment for international work. Thanks in advance for any help!

Hey Peter,

 

This may be of help.

Unfortunately, I live in Sydney, so any additional input would be rendered useless.
