Nathan Arizona started this petition to Fujifilm and

On New Years Eve a burglar broke into my SUV smashing my window with a cinder block & snatching $10K worth of camera gear; all of my working tools which were Sony Full Frame and Fujifilm X cameras. A few days after my brother has set up a GoFundMe to try and help ease the loss: https://tinyurl.com/nateaz - This happened in Tempe, Arizona. Auto insurance with full comprehensive coverage only pays for damage to the vehicle and not the stolen contents. Renters insurance will only cover 10% of the total value of stolen goods. This was a 2nd Degree Felony Burglary we are talking about and I was targeted because I'm a photographer.

Not only did the thief steal $10K in gear; they also stole six months worth of photography work and travel from me which CANNOT be replaced. The total amount of that loss exceeds that of the photography gear as well. Also, Two of the lenses were just recently purchased and I’m still paying on them which puts me in debt.

Now here is why I am writing a petition: What’s inconceivable is that Apple iOS devices have perfect tracking technologies even inside an Apple Watch; Camera manufacturers like Sony and Fujifilm have yet to implement such technology which could prevent these crimes and keep photographers from being targeted by serious criminals. Why is this? The backpack that contained all of the stolen camera gear also included an iPad which the robber quickly discarded because it was track-able. That’s the irony. The Tempe City Police were able to retrieve the iPad within minutes of a crime that was still in progress.

I was simply returning to work from guiding a tour group to Sedona, Arizona and checking out for the day. It was in a short window of time that this robber executed a calculated crime between me leaving my locked vehicle in the parking lot just long enough to turn paper work in and wrap up a work day.

This petition is reaching out to all manufacturers of photography gear in an attempt to raise some serious attention about these issues facing photographers. I've been robbed twice and scammed once because of owning cameras. Nothing else seems to attract criminals and thieves more so than gear that is impossible to track and locate. That's why we are being targeted. Please do something to stop this violence and crime against photographers and artists who pay top dollar for their working tools of the trade.
