    if you're representing media to be there for shoot, then i think mindef will send out a preview advisory to you, indicating what you should and should not do, and your attire...

    the briefing (table tennis rm 3) is compulsory for media/press cameraman and photographer.

    There was definitely more than one guy with full tripod setup during the preview yesterday. I saw long lenses (estimate about 300-400mm) and people with proper ballhead setups.

    I brought along a 28-200mm. In the end, it was neither here nor there. 28 (equivalent of 42) is not wide enough for the whole field. 200 is nowhere near sufficient for anything - can't even recognise Kit Chan in my photos when she was singing opposite the field.

    I brought 18-70 + 70-210. The kit-lens at widest is sufficient to cover the entire field but not the entire stadium ... and yes, 210 is not long enough

    Default Tripod/Monopod/DSLR OK at NDP

    Hehehe...I was one of them with a tripod at the grandstand

    All you need is to send your eq through the x-ray machine and you can bring it in...had a full bag of gear + tripod. No problems.

    Here are some shots I took at yesterday's preview:
