Stolen camera gear, be on the lookout!

In a break from a scheduled programming, I am putting out a call for help from the community. Today one of my clients told me some devastating news, his camera gear has been stolen during a burglary. So if you are in the USA (or indeed anywhere) please be on the lookout for these items.

For obvious reasons I am not going to name my client, but they are based in Seattle, USA. Some low-life broke into their house during the night and stole a bunch of items, including the camera gear. And it is not a small amount of gear either, there are some special and unique. So if you are offered or see any of the following please contact the local authorities and drop me a line so I can out you in touch with the original owner.

I don’t have to tell you how much I despise thieves. Especially when they violate your home. I really feel for my client and I would like to be able to offer some help. Please be on the lookout, they might be in cameras stores, pawn shops or even on ebay. If you see anything please help us to recover these pieces.
