Well then I should be fine with my Mamiya 645.

IIRC they didn't ban film or analogue cameras.

I'm an extra on a film right now (first time), and they won't allow us to bring cameras on the set. Sure is tempting, however. Big names, but I want to get invited back so I have to be good.


Thank you. bw!

That's the English English meaning of "chips" which would be [US]"fries"[/US]
USA "chips" = "crisps" in English English.

I was just thinking about the old Catadioptric lenses (external link) (whatever happened to them?) which would beat the 35cm physical length restrictions.

Oh cool. I need to re-read that. I still have my wet-film cameras and lenses.

Actually, I think that may be because you aren't going to be turning round a neg and selling into the "instant picture" market in 5 minutes.

Let not forget that lenses that come under 35cm should be long enough for non commercial images

EF 300 L f2.8 (but you not going to get that in)
EF 28-300 L
EF 100-400L
EF 400 L f5.6
EF 400 DO f4

and depending on camera 1.4 or 2 extender.

Tour De France
Triathlon
Marathon
Ironman

Just to start with, but there are many many sports and sporting events where attendance is free, and with no restrictions on taking photos. The laws on the commercial use of images differs from country to country, for example there is no legal requirement for model realise forms in the UK.

F1 motorsport is another one where you can easily lug around a 200-400L lens and no one will give a damm

:D well of course, but I was trying to point out that with the 35cm allowance there are some long focal length lenses available

The limit is 30 cm, not 35.

The 100-400, 70-200 f2.8 and f4 IS models, fitted to a 7D all just squeeze in.

I'm going to the technical rehearsal of the opening ceremony on Monday. I plan to take a 24-105 and 70-200 f4.

It's apparently illegal to post your Olympics events photos to Facebook - at least illegal for Brits.
read it here (external link)

I read it. It says nothing about it being illegal (because it isn't). Reading comprehension FTW?

Someone has pointed out to me that next time there's going to be an Official Social Network of the Olympic Games.

The amount of FUD being spread about the restrictions placed on spectators is unbelievable. This morning there was some idiot saying that packets of crisps (chips to our American friends) would have to be decanted into unbranded bags:rolleyes:
