    Jeff,
    Thanks for the info.

    Does anyone knows what does "Professional cameras" implies? A DSLR? a camera with big zoom lens? Do the staff at the stadium has a list of cameras that qualify as " Professional cameras". I am trying to bring my humble 350D along ..... probably qualify as amateur camera.

    Professional cameras ARE allowed rite... so shouldn't matter what camera you bring in.

    since it says professional cameras are allowed, i guess any sort of cameras are allowed for as long as flash is not used.

    I had a press pass last year. This year dunno yet.

    Flash is strictly forbidden. If you don't have a press pass, you will be limited to shooting from the stands. Which means shooting down.

    The net is always in front of the player facing you. You will need fast glass and high ISO to catch the 'jump smash' shots. Shutter speeds need to be about 1/500 sec. Think dslr and a telephoto lens unless you just want stadium shots.
