    STOLEN Canham 8X10 View Camera--please be on the look out!!

    Hello,

    My name is Allie Horick and I am a 26-year-old starting an MFA program in photography at the University of Montana in Missoula. While moving here from Tennessee I had my u-haul trailer broken into in Billings, Montana and had my camera and all its equipment stolen. I'm hoping to get the word out to other large format photographers to increase the number of people looking out for it. If you see my camera listed for sale anywhere please either contact me (615-337-1544) or the Billings Police Department ((406) 657-8200). Below is a list of the items with serial numbers and some images. I did have most of the items insured and so will receive some money from the policy if they cannot be recovered, but if it's at all possible I hope to recover my camera and gear.
    Thanks in advance for any help.

    -Allie

    Bummer. I feel the pain. Sure glad it was insured, but it will undoubtedly take forever to recover.

    Missoula is a nice town, but I guess Billings never will be.

    I will keep my eyes out. Nice to have the numbers. I ask for serial numbers before I buy.

    Be safe.

    That is terrible news...
    I will keep an eye out in SF Bay area.
    I hope it is found and the thief/thieves do hard time.

    Horrible, but glad you had insurance.
    Friend of mine had his camera, lenses, and holders stolen out of a storage unit.
    Few months later he saw what looked like his gear listed on ebay.
    He ended up buying back the gear, the holders still had film in them. They were his pictures on the film.

    Very glad you had insurance

    Some household insurance does not cover items being moved between homes

    We always lose even if covered, insurance companies don't want to pay 100%

    My daughter lost all her Hasselblad when it was worth the most, 90's

    Same story you have, during a move across USA, when she stopped to sleep in a rural area motel

    This too will pass

    Good Luck!
