    this year the restrictions are stricter than last year... this year i'll be working for SGP..i think it's like no extremely professional stuff or something like that?

    IIRC, professional recording equipment can't be brought in. ie. video recorders like the NEX-VG10. so possible, gotta prove first that it's not done for professional gain...

    Thanks! I asked on Facebook about it and they said they disallow tripods/monopods.

    I understand the tripod but the monopod? Lighting would be awful so why restrict the mono?

    They said no monopods in grandstands. Did you bring it into the grandstand?

    If your equipment is deemed professional, then u have to sign a non-commercial photo form.

    These days alot of people are owning 5D mark II, 1D mark III and 1D mark IV, Nikon D3 and D3s, if they restrict people owning them then alot will have to go home to leave their cameras at home. Esp in the DSLR era becoming affordable for many, they will find it hard to restrict people from bringing in such equipment. However they may block all the good potential unblocked areas to prevent overcrowding at a certain area.
