Would you have waltzed in as easily with your 5D and a 70-200?

Watch the Olympic opening sequence to see how many morons think a puny on
camera flash can illuminate an olympic stadium at night time.


They have no idea how the flash works, and no idea how to turn it off
anyway. Their camera is always set to auto, and simply fires the flash in
such circumstances, because it has no idea either.
Still remember the moon landings where millions of pictures of blank TV sets
were processed in the following weeks. The flash exposing the cabinet just
fine :-)
At least the morons get to see their mistakes immediately now, knowing what
(and how) to change is entirely another matter though!
And I can't count the number of times I've helped people with expensive
DSLR's that have no idea how to change even the most basic settings! Their
comment is always the same, "must read the manual one day". They never do
:-(

There's a wide range of consistency in the enforcement of the rules at
different venues. In my experience, sports venues tend to be a little
more lax about DSLR cameras than music venues, but it definitely
depends on the team and arena. It all depends on the training they
give to the security staff.

I don't know. But since I've sold off all my Canon gear that's no
longer a concern.

Agreed, and it's that lack of consistency that's the problem. I can't
blame them for worrying about video at concerts since bootleggers will
stop at nothing. But stills? Are they really losing money because I
might shoot a few stills?

Yep, people pay lots and lots of money for shaky videos with
really bad audio. Especially when they can get much better
recordings for less, and legally too.

But stills? Are they really losing money because I

Of course: people will see how bad/drugged the performers look
after a few songs. That's really terrible, and doesn't match
their corporate image, so we really need the death penalty.

I've seen a lot of them taking flash photos of fireworks. That's double
stupidity.
