The Importance of Insurance for photographers

The photographing career needs very expensive equipment. It would be very unfortunate if something happened when you had no insurance cover for your equipment. You need an insurance policy to cover your equipment against theft, damage or loss. You will need to insure each item separately with their individual make, model, serial number and its value.

insurance for photographers are of two types: the commercial cover, if you use them for business and an All Risk Personal Floater if the equipment is for home use. The peace of mind that comes with insuring your equipment is overwhelming, the cost is not extreme, and you can afford it without denting your wallet.

What are Toggle Switches?

A toggle switch is an electrical switch that is manually operated by a mechanical lever, handle or rocking mechanism. These switches are available in different styles and sizes and they are used in many applications. toggle switches provide the simultaneous actuation of multiple sets of electrical connections and they control large amounts of electrical currents.

Examples of these switches are like the mercury tilt switches, which consist of a drop of mercury inside a glass bulb with two or more contacts. Another example is the knife switch with a flat metal blade. This metal blade is hinged at one end with an insulated handle for operation and the other end is a fixed contact. A foot switch is operated using foot pressure.

Reunion prep

Our FB thread is so busy right now as we prepare for our 25th year batch reunion in May. The organizing committee hasn’t come up with a final plan yet, a lot of things is needed to iron out including the food catering, the digitech whammy as part of the sound system, and the venue itself. I’m not sure if they have already chosen a place at this time.

One of my batchmates has proposed a few neat designs for souvenir shirts. Everyone wants a unique design for their shirt. But, I guess, majority always rules. The simple the shirt design is, the better it looks.

I’m not sure if I will be able to attend the occasion. I still have a few more months to decide. If I won’t be able to make it, I might just give my share to the group’s fund.
