£1m camera thieves get Creative

Our largest local broadcast reseller, CVP (Creative Video) had about £1million-worth of camcorders, lenses and other broadcast stuff stolen from its west London warehouse last weekend.

These included lots of Canon XF305, XF300, EOS C300, XF105 and XF100 camcorders, and Sony F3, PDW-700, EX1R, EX3, NEX-FS100, Z5, Z7 and NX5 models, amounting to about 120 cameras in all, as well as viewfinders for higher-end cameras, and lots of other stuff. In response, CVP has set up an online Stolen Equipment Register.

I’ve written a full report for TVBEurope magazine.
