Thanks Fraser. Just a minor correction: The owner is Mark Pederson of Off Hollywood Studios.

 

Here are the details of the theft:

And here is the reward offer:

Also lost was a very expensive lens, the Angenieux Optimo 15-40mm SN s/n 1591382.

 

Unfortunately, the circumstances of the burglary makes it look like a typical home invasion in the South of France, which happens more often than one thinks, especially in the summer when it's super crowded. Hopefully they do try to fence it and it is recovered.

Ouchhh...!!!

I wonder if the bad guys even know what they have stolen?

Hope this gets sorted out and they find all the missing equipment!

Not mine Mike,..I'm sure Mark had insurance but that doesn't ease the blow..still shooing RED One but expect to move into EpicX this year. Was just trying to get the word out, the more that know the better.

 

Maybe they'll catch those responsible, I hope so...dislike someone who steals...

Epic number six has been stolen in France from Mark...there's a $100,000 reward posted for the conviction of those responsible.

 

I'd be checking video forums for posts that have awesome picture quality, however are slightly wobbly with rubbish composition... :dancing:

I read on another forum someone suggesting that it was stolen by a competitor wanting the 'Secret Sauce'

I seriously doubt that Jonny. The conspiracy theorists will be out in force but all of those guys have never lived in the south of France. Break ins like that, are happening more and more often. In fact, it's risen over 60% in the south of france. Tourism rentals with minimal security (read locks that suck!) and even sleeping gas has been used burglars have been doing their runs. I have friends who suffered one of these burglaries last year and they've since put in alarms and stronger locks. Those guys knew which jewelry were fake and only what was of high value that could be fenced easily like handbags, cash and jewelry.

If you remember good ol' Sarkozy's anti-Romani rhetoric which got him into hot water, it's partially related to the suspicions that the rapid rise in burglaries are work of the Romani illegal immigrants.

You are absolutely right Drew. Having lived in the South of France and Catalan I know this area is blighted by theft which is typicically perpetrated by itinerents who constantly look for any opportunity...

Well something like that is going to be pretty hard to off load.

Abit like stealing a Bugatti, its going to stand out where ever it turns up.

The main view is it was a random lift, any chance this could have 'stolen to order'???

I can't imagine have that gear and not having insurance for it. Hopefully, they had some.

If the reward is $100,000 - what on earth could the value of the camera be? Or is it one of those priceless "engineering samples?"
