SLR Cameras Not on Banned List at Olympic Venues?
While still listed on BOCOG’s website as banned from the Olympic venues, professional photography equipment is not present on the list of prohibited items outside security checkpoints. Professional video equipment is still banned, but according to new signage, “unauthorized” professional still cameras are not on the list. Does this mean you’ll be able to enter with all of your equipment no questions asked? I don’t think we’ll be certain whether or not SLR cameras are allowed until spectators try using them at the venues, so please comment on this post or send me an email if you’re able to successfully use your SLR equipment at venues without a credential. A partial list of banned items can be seen below.
