SLR To Beach Volleyball Tomorrow
I haven’t received any confirmation from readers regarding whether or not they’ve been able to bring SLR cameras into the Olympic venues as spectators, but your emails and comments have not gone unnoticed. I scored a general admission beach volleyball ticket for tomorrow morning, and will be bringing along my Olympus E-520 and 12-60mm f/2.8-4 lens, and leaving the Olympic credential at home.
While at the match, I don’t plan on staying put in my seat, but will try to shoot all around the venue -- assuming I can get my camera through security. I’m taking a chance by bringing the SLR -- my hotel is well over an hour from the beach volleyball venue -- but I’m fairly optimistic that I’ll be able to get through with my E-520. Check back tomorrow for more information, and hopefully confirmation that SLR cameras will be allowed into the venues.
