Camera Question

Quoting the camera policy a the panthers website:

------------------------

Camera Policy

Small still cameras are permitted in the stadium. Video cameras are not permitted per NFL rules. Tripods or any other similar equipment that could be a tripping hazard are also not allowed.

----------------------------

Does this imply that I can't take my SLR (with a inter-changable lenses)? Should I just bring my point-and-shoot?

I think that the intention is to not have people with tons of high powered lenses and camera bags running around the stands. As long as you don't have some foot long lens poking out the front of the camera I doubt it will be an issue.

I have brought in my SLR a few times, only once the guy said I shouldn't use my 70-300mm lens, so I said sure since it was in the bottom of my bag. I would recommend only bringing 1 lens for your camera, of course attached. I now just leave the 70-300 attached and pointing down into the bag, they will check to make sure nothing unusual in the bottom of your bag and let you go. At least that has been my luck. Don't bring a huge bag either they may not let that in either. Good luck, and post some shots. I haven't brought mine yet to a home game, but plan on it this week.

I suppose if you want to take random pics of you and your family or whatever, it might not hurt to throw in the point and shoot. Or give it to someone else to carry in, using a 70-300 or something similar would be hard to compose a good shot of people in the stands sitting next to you.

Check this out...Kodak (I know, I know) has come out with the z1015 that has a 15 x optical zoom (28mm-420mm) 10 megapix in a small body for under $300. I spotted one on line for $235. Google "kodak z1015" and read the reviews.....

Well, good luck with any camera a fan is allowed to bring in for a night game. How many per year?

I just thought for the money you would have a leg up on the standard 3x and 5x optical zoom cameras, and still get by security.

By the way, Zod..... How much did you pay for your camera? :D
