    trust me, a dslr will not get you any love from most people, try a leica, people will treat you differently. Compacts is a sure giveaway of a tourist to complete the look.

    SLRs are just so intimidating, I get freak out by people carrying huge gear sometimes myself, especially in front of catwalk shows.

    Actually I'm rather keen to see some sort of spy cam test. Whether different treatment for caucasians, asian, etc.

    dun need a rocket scientist to give you the answer...

    there is definitely preferential treatment... everyone is equal, just some more equal than others.

    Pity theres no photographic association here.
    Otherwise maybe can even have an ID card of sort for every registered photographer, that is recognised by establishments/govt. So can just show security when asked, then carry on.
    In this way, security can still do their job?

    Yes, there is ..... Sign up as a photojournalist in SPH.....they will give a pass accessible in any events and location and also have lawyers to protect you in case anything happened.
