If they were disorganized druggies you might have luck checking local pawnshops and CL. If they are organized thieves they will ship out of area to warehouse and sell. Too bad the GPS unit doesn't have a "Find My CAmera" app.

However, the camera has a serial number for use at the Stolen Camera Finder web engine:

Drag and drop one of your photos onto it.

That's really unfortunate. Sorry to hear about it!

If you could tell people the circumstances surrounding your theft, maybe it will help others on here from also having their equipment stolen.

Not to be a downer but I've never had much luck recovering stolen goods.

Don't just inform Canon, hopefully you've filed a police report as well.

Also keep an eye out on this site: http://www.stolencamerafinder.com/

Thank you all for your concern, I appreciate it.

These things can happen anywhere, unfortunately. But this time, it happened to me, and in Central Moscow. The GPS tracker was set to "log", irony of ironies. While slightly sympathetic, the police are of no help, really. I suppose if knives had been used, it would be a different story.

For insurance, we shall see. It's not that clear cut but hopefully I don't lose 100% of the value. I think certainly, the value of the 50L is gone for good.

An absolute waste, for sure - especially the images. The sting of stolen goods goes away in time, but the loss of what we do, the photographs themselves, always provoke a question in the mind, even years later. But I hope the physical injuries don't linger...

So sorry for your loss, both gear and images!

That's a travel nightmare of mine.

Were you mugged, or was your camera/bag left unattended for a moment?

this is really sad to hear any loss/theft is a constant worry in any destination, although in some places i feel safe it's never 100% safe. I hope you do get your money back.

Even though the police weren't that helpful, I'd guess that getting some kind of proof that you at least filed a report with the police there would help in getting some kind of assistance from your insurance company. Anyways, sorry... it's a huge bummer to be sure.
