    I suggest you call then first cos I know many concerts which do not allow cams. This is especially for performances as it distracts the performers. For music concerts, the more noise the better so no issue.

    If cam is ok, a tripod takes too much space. A monopod is best but make sure you do not block the people at the back.

    I don't think you can, cos it's a musical not a concert. You can always buy the program booklet for the pictures.

    actually I'm wondering the same. I'll be going to Eric Johnson's live concert at University Cultural Centre. Would love to bring my camera since I got tickets to the 1st row. Guess I should call UCC to ask about photo-taking. Or anyone could share their experience?

    I highly doubt that you can bring in any DSLR into paid events like these.

    CoolcatIf you take a close look at the fine print on the ticket a few thing become clear.1. you paid money not for the right of admission - organiser can if he chooses bar you and refund the payment. 2. you have no rights to bring photographic, video or sound recording appartus and also no permission to use such devices. your film and tapes can be taken away from you to destroy the recordings. 3. if you hide your DSLr and latter whip it out to shoot, soon you will find a bouncer at your elbow, requesting for your film/cf card/tape. if you are too arguementative you would be escorted out of the event area - see point 1. 4, even if you evaded the bouncers - if you should choose to make public use of this - website, blog, gallery page be aware that the managers of the artist in question can and have taken legal action for copyright infringement.Actually unless you are paid or ask to cover, its normally better to just go to enjoy, shooting often gets in the way of enjoy the show.cheers......PS its a rude shock to find a bouncer at your elbow...... Sherrly Crow's 2nd concert in Singapore taught me that.

    Well, if it applies to cameras, it applies to phones with cameras too. And for courtesy sake, I'm sure there will be an announcement before the concert tell you to turn your phones off.

    good to check first. At Emil Chau's concert earlier this year, the security saw the DSLR+long lens in my bag and let me bring in to shoot. At some other concerts/musicals I watched, even compact cameras are not allowed.

    from what i notice, pop concert normally can shoot...if u see those concert DVD u can see flashes firing non-stop

    when i watched snow.wolf.lake in singapore 8 years ago, they were very strict and even small compact camera also cannot bring in. There are many pple still manage to smuggle camera in because after the musical started, security guards will stand around to catch any flash that fires off, cannot escape one cos they will rush to you and drag u out of your seat straightaway, then bring u to the back and confiscate the camera.

    unlike pop concert, the flash can really spoil the mood during a musical, it was even more distracting when the guards running around to confiscate camera. not really worth the trouble because you wont be able to enjoy the performance, you will probably missed part of the show too if u get caught

    Yes, same after 8 years, still cannot bring camera into the snow.wolf.lake concert.

    Tried to smuggle in since I've not receive any firm answer here, but was stopped . Have to leave cameras in your car or the locker.

    Their r some cameras who manage to sneak thru the security defence though, mostly r slimline pocket compact. But once u start to take pics it will usually be spoted by the alert security and stopped by them.

    However, those audience in the centre (VIP or reserved seats?) seemed to able to bring their cam as after the show many rush up and take pictures..

    I went to the STOMP concert at the Esplanade recently and they strictly forbid any photo taking. I was about to shoot a photo with a IXUS, I was stopped immediatelly (by shouting over 3 rows of seats) by an attendant.

    Bring or not to bring. That's the question .

    Better to play safe. I have Nikon D70s. Put a long tele lens, and you can't hide it easily. Surely they will find it out, especially when you take a photo .
