Final rules for Olympics Spectators?
« on: April 27, 2012, 08:20:24 AM »
Does anyone know the final rules for cameras for Olympics Spectators. They were supposed to be released last week, but I can't find them.
I have heard rumors of all of the following - hoping if there is a rule, it's i)
i) Camera and lens < 12 inches long
ii) lens < 6 inches long
iii) no detachable lens
iv) No focal length > 300mm

Any insights?

How will they enforce this?
Can they take your camera?
also, do tele converters/crop bodys count?
eg 7d with 2x converter on a 70-200 2.8

Nobody even looked at my camera or lenses. They just don't want you obstructing the views of other spectators...
5DMkiii, 7D, loads of glass (most of which has now been stolen - bastards!)

Yip, I regularly noticed a lot of white lenses in the crowds looks like common sense prevailed mostly
