    What's considered "professional cameras"? Cameras which are used professionally? Or professional looking cameras? Don't make sense.....

    tripods are allowed . . . i went up there a couple of months ago see a row of cameras with tripods. So no issue with tripods.

    The clause stated " No professional photography/video equipment allowed". Think they wish to prevent people from using that place for photoshoot using those big softbox, lightings etc etc.

    Our cameras are not PROFESSIONAL equipment in their sense.

    Cos i asked before i bought the ticket.
    Shot more cos digital is FREE !!!

    DSLR should be ok.. extraordinary LARGE equipment maybe not ok bcoz it might be too heavy and cause maximum loading to be exceeded.. just kidding.. big equipment is more like hazard or obstacle and cause inconvenience to other users..

    Once I queue for the tickets one guy hang a DSLR with some L lens over his body and bought the tickets the pple there also never say anything.. Normal Cameras (DSLR/PnS) are not an issue really.. Of coz not those video camera used by mediacrop lah..

    not like the view is exceptionally great anyways, from pictures i've seen.

    same argument as the eiffel in paris - why tour montparnasse offers a better view is because the view there includes the eiffel....

    whereas the view from the eiffel includes tour montparnasse, which is quite an ugly building..

    The view is great for the NDP fireworks! Kinda different feeling when the blast goes off at around the same level as the viewer..

    I managed to get my dslr up there and tripod (but both were in my bag).
    There was a "shooting" outing there a few months back.

    One managed to get his tripod and dslr up sling on/across their shoulders.

    But well, just in case... try to keep your cam and tripod in a bag if you can, else a bag and a tripod bag.

    The garden area is fine for both DSLR and tripod. But for the pool area, no tripods are allowed.

    DSLR and Tripods are ok to bring up. You just cannot setup the tripod there.

    I went up few weeks back with my D700 and firing away everywhere from the exclusive section to the public section but no one ever stopped me once I even saw a news video crew up there but the lady commentator sounded like a Thai.

    Just do it until you are stopped lor
    Photography? It's all in your mind...
