The Melbourne photographic studio of Kane Hibberd was broken into over Christmas and a lot of Kane’s equipment was stolen.

“Merry to Christmas to me. Studio was broken into over Christmas sometime. We are missing:
2 x 5dmk II Bodies
2 x 24 – 70 Canon Lenses (they left a 3rd 24 – 70 mm lens) One of these lenses will have an iron maiden sticker on the lens hood. The other is cosmetically pretty scratched up, works fine though,
1 x 16 – 35 Mk II 2.8
1 x 15mm canon fisheye
Very strange as they didn’t touch a 1dsmk3 or 1 dsmk4 bodies. They also didn’t take 2 x 70 – 200 lenses.
Worst timing with festival season. Insurance is going to take awhile to sort out.
Kane is a well-known and respected Australian music photographer who has worked at SXSW, Soundwave, Pyramid and with artists like The Living End, The Bronx, The Cat Empire, The Temper Trap, Birds Of Tokyo and Tex Perkins.
