Yep didnt mean to come across as whining - accept its all my fault, I'm just annoyed that they don't allow it and was interested if anyone else had the same issue..

Don't agree with the privacy thing - its a club (what the diff is between this and a 'private establishment' i've no idea) and the place is full of members of the public drunk, having fun and as usual, taking photos.

I'll google 'un-deleting photos DSLR'.. :)

Every concert you go to these days is full of people with cellphones, iphones, blackberries and tiny digital elphs, etc... but the minute you bring out an EOS DSRL you're a pro and not allowed :)

I'd love to bring my 70-200 and my 40D to a lot of shows I've been to, but half the time I don't bother because I know unless I have a media pass, I'm going to be told to leave it in the car, at home, etc...

It's ironic, but what can you do.

As for the club shooting, it's private property.. as people said nothing you can do, they can kick you out because they dont' like your shirt, shoes, etc. Cameras are going to grab attention and if someone doesn't like it, I totally understand their view. That's why when I used to shoot events, clubs, etc I would have a media pass.

I agree with this--it's not about privacy, it's about policy at a private business. It may seem stupid, but they have their reasons. If you choose not to follow their rules, then you are subject to the consequences.

I asked before I went in and was told "NO cameras allowed!"

So the concert starts and flashes going off everywhere. EVERYONE was shooting their cell phones.

but because it doesn't LOOK like a camera, it's ok

A couple of things. The no cameras allowed policy is often there so that they have a "valid" reason for kicking out somebody who has become a nuisance.

Number 2. The no-camera policy may be there because of a no-competition clause in the contract with the performer's or venue's photographer. The typical cell phone shooter is not going to get anything that would be competitive. Somebody toting a dSLR is more likely to, even though in the hands of an accomplished photographer today's cell phone cameras might do a pretty good job.

Last night, out at Funky Buddahs in London ... they threw me out for having an slr (50D)!!!

To be fair to them, they told me at the front to put it in the cloak-room (I ignored this as I had dragged the thing the whole way to London I wanted some decent photos). While they we're throwing me out, they also said that if I deleted all the photos of the night and give them the camera they would let me back in - but clearly having a beasty slr I care about the photos so while they we're escorting me out, I slipped the mem card to a mate.. so the damn thing popped up with 'No Card' when they tried to delete the pics!

My question is has anyone else experienced this??? Or does anyone know a better way around it? They couldn't even give me a reason (plenty of people had compact cameras out).

Is this going to keeo happening across all clubs now?! I ended up waiting outside for 3 hours for my mates to come out!

And your compliant is?????

Thanks for the stop whining comments. Helpful

If this were public people would be on your side. But you need to realize private property is another matter for which the owners make the rules, not trigger happy photographers.

Any un-delete program should be able to do it. RStudio is what we use at work.

Dear NotAClue:

How about GETTING a clue and following the rules. If they said 'no dslr camera in the club,' you had a choice: Follow the rules or leave. Since you chose the latter, consider yourself and your camera lucky to be away from the club without any damage.

You could have deleted them then bring them back with a undelete progam :)
Rob.

Not if they were smart enough to reformat the card in the camera. Nevertheless, it still might be possible with the right software, but not easy.

Most good recovery programs will pick up files after a reformat as long as the images haven't been over written by shooting more shots that write over the top of them.

Indeed. As long as you don't overwrite the files, they should be recoverable.
