This is a little trick for travellers about how to make your electronics safer.
For some we can’t live without our gadgets on the road and leaving them at home is just plain impossible.
Bloggers and photographers depend on these devices to live and it’s even more of a challenge to protect them from thieves.
Highly trained professionals and even locals who can’t hold temptations to feed their families choose to target travellers for their highly prized gadgets in order to grab some quick cash.
cover up the logo with some black tape.
Cover the branded logo and model type with some black tape. Simple!
So, is it a Nikon? Sony? Canon? 400D? 500D? 1,000D? 5D? 7D? Who Knows? and in fact I’m not even going to tell you, it really works!
Professional thieves are trained to go after high value items.
They are given lists of brand types and models to sort after by their ringleader/kingpin/big boss.
By covering the brand/type you are avoiding your item from the list as its seen as not of any value

It Wont fully protect you.
But it’s a step you can take to avoid the possibility of it happening.
This tip won’t work for any devices.
For example: You can turn very expensive headphones like Bose or Beats using tape into a normal looking $20 pair.
I love high quality audio on my travels for video editing, but going to locations with Bose headphones on is not a wise idea.
I’m not one who likes to flash brands and I prefer to buy good quality products for the sound and in this case I went for some more up market ones.
The tape allows me to enjoy high quality audio on the road without having to cover them from targeting criminals allowing me to truly enjoy my day.
Be smart and think sensibly.
