[/LIST]The first bullet is clear enough, but the second is kinda wierd. I'm trying to think of a camera with a non removable lens that is 6" long and I'm drawing a blank.

Same here - maybe you could weld a 5.9" lens on to a 50D and get in :shock:

The big problem here is if you get a gatekeeper who thinks it is a pro camera you don't get to take it in and since they never have places to check your belongings you will be SOL.

I couldn’t make the decision without knowing how far I would have to walk back to the car, and what (if anything) that would do to my seating.

The bad thing about this is that each security guard will enforce this differently.

The good thing about this is that each security guard will enforce this differently.

In other words, if you're unclear about the 'rules', chances are there are at least a few security guards that are unclear about them too, so you may benefit from simply walking to another gate and trying there instead of walking back to the car in defeat. :p

Private property means private rules. We don't have to like it we just have to do it.

To the OP: How did it go? Did they let you in?

That's debatable right there, since the taxpayers usually get the bill for stadiums. I don't know if the Georgia Dome is privately funded or paid for by the city (or a combination of both). Heck, even if they were given tax breaks, then it should be available for public use.

UPDATE: They let me in and I took all the pics I wanted. Many others did the same thing.

They even let in people with Nikons.

These fans were rowdy, and my father-in-law wanted to complain and tell them to shut up (they sat right behind us). I told my FIL: "If you do, you're on your own."

I thought they were pretty cool. Just college kids having a good time.

I like the policy at Petco Park in San Diego.

You can take in anything you want, just don't block anyone's view while you're taking pictures...

The Georgia Dome needed more light. I suspect that on the big NFL games (Falcons) they have more light. I suspect this because the top two layers of seating were closed off and there were no lights coming from those sections. Even though the lighting for those areas aren't intended for the field (but, rather the seats, etc.) it probably makes a difference.

I shot in 1600 all day, and could only get to about 250 on the shutter speed with good exposure. So I shot in RAW and took it up at times to 640, lightening in DPP. But then there's noise to deal with.

Long story short: Not a lot of good action shots, but still some decent shots of play set-ups, ets.


I did miss a few plays here and there. I have a difficult time with attention.

I had to swing around quickly for this shot VVV so I had to spend a lot of time processing it. One of the filters I used from Topaz Adjust is called Smooth and Flat. It helped smooth the skin tone a bit, but luckily didn't flatten the image too much. ;)

I just fell foul of this one - went to the Life is Good festival here in MA - rules said "no professional camera with removable lenses" so I took the G11 instead of the 7D.

Missed a ton of good shots as a result, and got to see plenty of people with their DSLR's out, photographing their kids enjoying the festival. Bummer.
