    Default no DSLR camera allowed in F1 races ?

    hi, heard from my colleague who bought a F1 walkabout ticket, he said no DSLR or videocam is allowed, PnS can.

    The last time I was at the Malaysian GP, no video was allowed. DSLR was ok.

    oh.. No mineral water was allowed either. You have to throw yours away and buy those that they have at an unbelievable price.

    Cheers,

    Every senseless rule becomes sensible when money's factored into the equation...

    Er. the rules say no lenses above 200mm. It puts no limit on whether or not the camera is a DSLR. I think your collegue is misinformed to put it mildly.

    Don't panic... DSLRs are allowed provided your lenses are <=200mm.

    This has been discussed a few times, you can refer to this thread:

    First, they royally f**k up the ticketing. Now, no DSLRs????!?!?!

    I'm really beginning to regret buying tickets here.

    Oh well, probably the first and last time then.

    Hmm some prosumers have focal lengths longer than 200 wor
    Olympus SP series has very long focal lengths. SP560 has 486mm lens.

    Stupid rule... scared people will shoot "better" and "closer" than the "official photographers"?

    i think there might be more monetary linked reasons

    maybe they only want their official photographers to be able to capture closeup details

    later can sell for $

    who knows?

    i think the 200mm is refering to the lenght of the lens
