Anyone brought camera gears to Myanmar lately? Especially after the cyclone recently? They seems to be are exceptionally sensitive to foreigners, and especially to journalist.
I'm not a journalist. But since many lay people seems to regard a budget and professional SLR as the same, and given a DSLR is probably not too common there, I am afraid to be mistaken as one by the customs or the police. So I want to know if I should be bringing my DSLR or just a P&S.
I've heard from friends who traveled there in group for just a couple of days that there are spies lurking outside their hotels when they were there (sounds ridiculous?). I can't really imagine what it is like being there. I don't know if I am being paranoidal, but I don't want to have my camera gears confiscated or even myself deported or detained because I have a "big" camera with me.
