The last time I was at the Malaysian GP, no video was allowed. DSLR was ok.

oh.. No mineral water was allowed either. You have to throw yours away and buy those that they have at an unbelievable price.

Cheers,

Er. the rules say no lenses above 200mm. It puts no limit on whether or not the camera is a DSLR. I think your collegue is misinformed to put it mildly.

First, they royally f**k up the ticketing. Now, no DSLRs????!?!?!

I'm really beginning to regret buying tickets here.

Oh well, probably the first and last time then.

Hmm some prosumers have focal lengths longer than 200 wor :bsmilie:
Olympus SP series has very long focal lengths. SP560 has 486mm lens.

Stupid rule... scared people will shoot "better" and "closer" than the "official photographers"?

i think there might be more monetary linked reasons

maybe they only want their official photographers to be able to capture closeup details

later can sell for $

who knows? :dunno:
