hi

newbie bluesfest goer this year, question about cameras

What classes as camera with professional telephoto lens? at what point do you get told can/can't bring camera.



FAQ on cameras

Am I allowed to bring a camera to the Festival?

Small still cameras are of course permitted.

Please do not bring cameras with professional telephoto lenses, video cameras or audio recording devices to the Festival. You will be asked to take them back to your car, campsite or accommodation.

At this point:



You should have no problem with a normal 35mm or digital but if it looks like the one above, well....

Couple years ago for the first two days I took my SLR in with me, then on day three at the gate was told 'no cameras with detachable lenses' were allowed. They graciously stored it for me for free in the cloak room, as they acknowledged the rules had changed that day. Since then I've only taken a little point and shoot. You could try an SLR but you'll either want a fast zoom lens (ie professional) or high ISO...

thanks heaps. I was thinking of taking my slr (it's old and it's film) but thinking of just putting my flat 50mm lens on it, with high iso film. surely they couldnt get too excited about a straight 50mm lens. I don't have a digi camera at all. yes yes i know, dinosaurs are alive and roaming the earth.

Like you, Fuschia, I also have a SLR (with film) and I have taken it each time, along with my small digital, with both 50mm and 300mm lens and had no problems, apart from having to carry that weight around all day, at all so it must depend on the person that checks bags on the gate!

Regarding cameras, or any other items refused entry, this year the Cloakroom will not be storing these items. This is due to a lack of secure storage available for us. This is official (at this point).
