pardon me for digging up a old thread.
still a bit upset here even though it's been a month.
brought daughter to Fuji Ice Palace during last June school hols. She skated while i stayed at the sides taking pictures of her with my 50d attached with 70-200 L lens. Happily snapping away for most of the 2 hours until towards the end, one of the staff came over and told me i have to keep my camera or he will confiscate. To be fair, he was rather polite but firm. I reasoned nicely with him that there were a lot of other people there taking pictures with the compact PnS and some with video cam. So what's the difference? He said those PnS are fine. I didn't want to argue with him further since i am already done and was about to pack up anyway. if he had come to me much earlier, i would have kicked up a big fuss
was i wrong? or was i being discriminated just because i am using a non PnC with a long white color lens....making me look like someone from the press/media. i don't recall seeing any signs outside prohibiting taking photos.
