No problems of safety here at all. I took my SLR camera in the evening and thought it was like any other city - Miami or LA. You have to be vigilant and sensible, but nobody is actively looking (in my view). Copacobana is different and the feeling there is more risk and isn't a beach I personally like. Ipanema is good, clean and is where there's hardly any kids hanging around.
