    i was there with my girlfriend on NDP rehearsal last Sat... DSLRs are allowed, be it pro or non-pro body. You can even lug a 200mm f/2, no one really cares.

    you may even bring your tripod up to the Skypark, but you are not allowed to setup any tripod up there. Can bring but cannot use.

    the food up there is pretty expensive... a bottle of Tiger beer cost $10, a can of Coke cost $4.

    actually they nv make noise initially when we deploy the tripod. only during the firework, they stop us from deploying tripod. end up use monopod.

    ohya, i met a guy there. he brought a clamp-type holder and fix his camera on the railing. damn smart. hahaha

    There is a thread on it.

    http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/showthread.php?t=720817

    I went up recently.. There no time limit of how long u can stay up there, only the allocated time slot for u to go up. For hobbyist like me, bring a dslr up is ok. Bring a tripod up is ok too but as for shooting fireworks/night scene. One of the security i asked there said can but cant open too wide or shoot liao close it, don't park there forever n block other people walking path. BUT i heard many different story/reason given by the security guard.

    The term "professional photographic equipment" is very misleading.

    i went to MBS Skypark 2 times; first time with my camera in daytime... second time without my camera. Too many people, too crowded, and I don't want to risk my camera getting into free-fall situation.

    p/s: you cannot bring your own food up there. The security officers will examine your bags before you get through the entrance.

    I organized an outing to MBS Skypark on June 21st, and in the group that shot up at the Skypark, everyone brought their tripods except for one, and all had dSLRs!

    But some were using those freebie tripods, which definitely can be hidden but if you are using a big tripod, it will be obvious, yet they closed one eye.

    I went up with the tripod slung across my chest, and they still let me in. Of course, I reduced my camera equipment to essentials, not bringing everything.

    On the same day, met another photographer and he was whipping around his 70-200 white L Canon lens, and nobody bothered him.

    So, I supposed it depends on which security-type people are on duty, and what time. I came in at 5pm and stayed till 8pm.

    Just sharing my experience.

    But if you were stopped, please don't whack me for giving you false information.

    Cheers!

    glad to hear the guy u met can AND will use his discretion..
    the security guy i overheard last weekend just wants to facilitate crowd movements and acts accordingly.
    so dun bother to bring ur big tripods up on national day..
    unless u're into weight training..
