Cheap Trick #9: Rough Up Your Camera!

Everyone seems to be very proud of the camera equipment they own, mostly because they spent countless hours researching to find the right one! The result of this is that everyone wants to advertise their prized possession. I think perhaps this is a bad idea. Why? because it’s an open invitation to thieves and would be thieves. My recommendation? Take a nice sharpie and just black out all of the labels on your camera like Canon or Nikon. You might even use black tape. It will also make your camera look somewhat damaged too. Who would want to steal a camera that looks like it’s been dropped?
