Most high-end video cameras can easily be insured. Coverage is readily available for:

  • Action cameras
  • Drones
  • Film video recorders
  • Specialty lenses and filters
  • Associated equipment (e.g. bags, tripods, memory cards, etc.)

What risks do video camera policies protect against?

Video camera policies typically offer protection against a variety of potential damages These may include perils such as:

  • Fire
  • Theft
  • Vandalism
  • Water damage
  • Damage during transit
  • Accidental damage

Whether policies guard against accidental damage (or any other perils) depends on their particular terms and conditions. Videographers can review a policy’s terms with an insurance agent who specializes in video camera policies, to see whether accidental damage or specific other perils are covered.

Does homeowners or renters insurance cover video cameras?

Homeowners or renters insurance will usually cover less expensive video equipment that’s not used professionally. Expensive gear and cameras that are used for professional recording, whether that’s recording films or recording clients’ events, are unlikely to be covered under a homeowners policy’s terms.

For expensive video cameras that are used professionally,  a video camera policy is often necessary even if a filming business is run from home.
