Thread: Camera policy at the new National Stadium (Singapore Sports Hub)

    Nowadays a lot of compact / bridge cameras have extra long focal length, right?

    Something like.. canon powershot sx700, Sony hx50v, or perhaps panasonic lumix tz60. I supposed these are usable & within the rule boundary?

    Main Rationale probably in ensuring their official photographer get the shots

    That said if I manage to bypass the interchangeable lens portion , bringing in a Pana 35-100/2.8 on an EM10 (3 axis Ibis lol) should be doable and u get 200mm reach.

    Anyways we are just guessing what their rationale is.. If it's to prevent commercial use, why is there a need? Do the people using the stadium always care about whether there are commercial shots made out of the event? For this, professional sports/event photographers may know better. As for physical size, I can't think of a rationale. Avoid people from knocking each other? Public safety?

    It may be better for them to state the basis. Sure, they don't have to and it may invite more questions, but I think if reasonable, most people will not question further.
    Training is one thing, they have to help their staff by coming up with proper rules that are not open to interpretation by anyone. At this point, it doesn't seem clear. To be honest, it is a little disappointing, given the hype of the new dome new hub wow wow whee, but in the end their rules and guidelines are simply (not sure if this is the right word) not professional enough. And yes, we are guessing their rationale, and this will simply be the divide between the consumers and the business. In the end, they may still fill their stadium. But for me, the joy is killed.

    The tickets are so expensive, why would anyone pay that amount not knowing if they can secure profitable shots then sell later?

    How to create the old national stadium atmosphere, with all this "this cannot that cannot"? Sigh... I guess, i will just stay away. Same like the indoor stadium, i stay away unless got complimentary tickets or treat from a friend.

    lol, winz. but we both still will be denied entry unless we get something like the RX10, which might fail the 200 mm physical length of lens test too

    for me , i've gotten very sick and tired of battling these archaic rules and of course 'camera bouncers'. Nowadays if i wanna attend any concerts, its HK where any camera equipment goes and of course locally wise, I boycott the events and in the rare occasion I do go, I just bring along the X100s or something similar.

    In the end, they can still fill up the place, so they probably won't evolve anytime soon.

    Brought my em10 and 40-150mm to the Juventus match. The lady at the gate hesitated when she saw the lens, and relentless let me through. Might not be so lucky next time.

    Haha am about to post the same question. Actually am going to bring my 300mm lens, but now seems even I bring in, still cannot use it. Anyway, I think I will bring this lens, plus a shorter lens. Is there any place i can deposit my lens if security does not allow me to bring inside?

    They asked me to deposit at some dragonboat place. So better to go there early.

    I recommend Canon SX50HS. Small and concealable.

    Sure can take a picture of a person sitting at the other (long) end picking his nose. Have being proven at this distance.
    Although I can't guarantee the sharpness.

    I think all these bans mean one thing.

    Exclusive (money)right for the photographs of the players esp the famous athletics.

    Can you imagine if the next year SEAP Games they ban (zoom lens)camera?

    As DD123 said, don't give them a hoot.

    I think its at the old Oasis side there. If the match is going to start, that will definitely feel damn far.

    thats why would be better go in early then worse come to worse go deposit. For me i was stopped and told to go there deposit but match is already starting soon and i saw a loophole to attack so i just dont care and walk through to reason out with the guards' supervisor.

    They won't care one. It won't hurt their business. In the end, japan vs brazil also sell 30k of tickets.

    Actually this rule about no photography (and no recording) has always been part of the T&C for all similar events, but just that they never enforce. Therefore even for PNS, they are already closing one eye. But recently as DSLR / Mirrorless systems became more widely used, they started to enforce it.

    Anyone had success bringing in ILCs before? Mine is a lowly Nikon J1 with 10-30mm lens... will they allow?

    The Sportshub Stadium T&C states that photography for non-commercial purposes is allowed.
    Cameras with interchangeable lens are NOT permitted.
    Cameras with PHYSICAL lens length (not focal length) of not more than 200mm are allowed.
    Videography not permitted.
    Canon 60D / 50mm F1.8 II / 40mm 2.8 STM / 75-300mm III

    get a compact 300mm/400mm prime, SUPERGLUE it to an A7/A6000/XT1/EM1/EM5 and ask the security if they think you could still change lenses on that camera.

    problem solved

    on the event page

    Child Admission Policy

    Infants in Arms do not require tickets.

    Child ticket applicable for children under 16.

    Photography and Videography Policy

    Photography is allowed, but only for personal use (i.e., non commercial uses).

    http://www.sportshub.com.sg/sportshu...-v-brazil.aspx

    since photography is allowed
    do they still have equipment restrictions like interchangeable lens camera not allowed ?

    if they don't allow, are there any lockers at the sports hub to deposit the equipment ? OCBC aquatic centre have free lockers but must pay to get in.

    BTW, how do they check when you enter? are there x ray machines to scan and do body checks ?
