    So, you have the right to shoot for personal use. (just don't take pics of pillars or walls or you might be deemed as a terrorist)
    Nah. Blowing up walls or pillars wun send the durian down.

    U might as well say take pictures of all major supporting structures within the durian right?

    But I bet if you are using compact point and shoot, they will not interfere you. It is normally when you use SLR or professional kind of camera then they will come after you.

    Anyway for case like this, just obey and go, no point reasoning. They are just doing their job.

Then we asked him how then? He told us we needed approval from management to shoot. Then we asked him how to get the approval? He said we needed to fill in a form. So I filled in the form, and the security actually made the call to locate the management supervisor and run all the way there to get the form approved.
    And this is the shot to prove that...

    i can confirmed it's the SLR. i was taking a grp photo for my friends in citylink last dec. less that 2 minutes later, a security guard walked up to me and told me no photography allowed. so i said okay and kept my SLR. then minutes later, i saw another group of people posing for a pns camera. the security did not confront the pns user.
    guess a pns camera might seem less threatening?

    Ironic that the PnS might pose a bigger security threat due to its concealable nature.

    Seems like they do not realise that those of us who do it openly and bluntly are less of a threat than those who might wanna lurk in the shadows.Perhaps we should organise a talk for the security agencies to dispel misconceptions.

    After all, we are also able to be a monitoring force out there when we are on photoshoots haha.

    Just a thought, what happened if all photographers unite and go to suntec or city link and at the same time shoot all over the place with flash and all. I mean a lot of photographers stretching throughout the hallway. As soon as one stop, the other one shoots... Would be funny to see all these people running around telling us not to shoot and when asked, just tell them that unless he stop all other people from shooting, then you will stop too. But since they won't be able to stop everyone at the same time, will be a big headache. If only one or two get stopped and the rest don't, then just say, discrimination for picking only you to stop shooting...

    Just a thought... not trying to make this an event... he he he...
