    Default dslr in concert

    hey, anyone here has kena caught for bringing dslr during concert in indoor stadium? where would the camera be if confiscated?

    im not saying i wanna bring in, i have an assignment just before a concert and cannot avoid not bringing the camera in.

    or is there way just to smuggle in, thats the best.

    70-200f2.8IS a bit difficult to smuggle hor?

    well, i hope just keeping in my bag should solve all the problem! if there's a service that could send my bag home after assignment would be best. and thanks for renting the lens mate.

    i've had encounters with someone using a DSLR with FLASH firing away inside victoria concert hall at one of the performances. Though it was stated before the performance "PHOTOGRAPHY IS NOT ALLOWED" that guy still got a way with it and sitting next to him is his with with a camcorder recording the whole performance. GVGT.. post vids later tonight.

    Depends on what concert you're attending and how an*l the publicity management side is. They may tell the security-end to outright refuse entry unless you leave it with them.

    yanyewkay: perhaps he has a media pass?

    Don't think they'll let you in. Almost everyone will claims that they'll not take it out from the bag.

    thay have lockers for you to put the stuff in, though you can always go back and retrieve your stuff after u've entered the hall and their attention is off you.

    err..i dun think so..i think there will be someone guarding the locker areas perhaps..
    how to retrieve during concert? haha..the moment u take out u r caught..its only if u r damn lucky or after concert then take back..

    actually..its damn easy to smuggle a 400D and 70-300 pass the guards or officials doing checks

    the lockers are only for confiscated items? is there any designated for safekeeping things out of the hall?

    i got caught with a 1D II + 70-200 at the checks before. they watched me put the stuff into one of the lockers and enter the hall. 5 mins later, i looped back and retrieved my camera+lens without any problems even though there were around 4-6 staff around the area. (none were keeping watch on the lockers though)
