Thread: SEA Games - Lens Use

    Default SEA Games - Lens Use

    Hi,

    Does anyone know is there any restrictions of the type of lens that we can use at the Indoor Stadium or the OCBC Arena?
    Think there was a restriction previously at OCBC Arena where can only bring in zoom up to 105mm, no tele.
    Anyone has any info on this?

    Thanks.

    (Sorry if I have posted in the wrong forum)

    They have these stupid rules:

    Note: It's "physical lens length of 200mm or less", NOT "focal length".

    National Stadium

    4. Photographs, images & recording
    4.1 Flash photography is not permitted.
    4.2 Non-commercial photography is permitted at the Venue provided:
    4.2.1 That the camera used has a fixed lens of a physical lens length of 200mm or less, when fully extended.
    4.2.2 That the photographs are for personal use.
    4.3 All other cameras including those of a professional standard, with interchangeable or telephoto lens such as SLRs or

    Bring a small, say, mirrorless camera with lens < 200mm length and, say 2x teleconverter.

    Let a friend of yours bring the teleconverter

    provided when they check you, they failed to recognise your mirrorless lens can be swapped out. (nb. only fixed lens cam allowed).

    I suppose these are quite reasonable rules. 200mm physical length can kind of impede others especially during games when the audience can get quite excited.

    Reasonable indeed. Can't imagine if one accidentally drops or swing his full frame DSLR with big fat lens and it hit someone.

    Heck they even ban selfie sticks
