Whether you are traveling to new York City or away from new York City, if you are carrying expensive camera equipment, security should be a topic of concern. No matter where you go in the world, there is always a chance for crime. So here are 5 tips for keeping your equipment safe

1. Use a less obvious bag. Let's face it everyone knows what a camera bag looks like. Don't add extra patches on your bag that identify the fact that you have camera equipment.

2. Don't advertise. Use a generic camera strap. No need to tell thieves the exact value of your equipment.

3. Leave things you don't need in the hotel room - chargers etc.

4. Backup every night.

5. Put the hard drive in the safe.
