Lights , Camera, Manuka

By 18 December, 2013 6

Anybody know what the regulations are for cameras and camera gear at Manuka Oval? I’ve got tickets to watch the Poms vs PM’s XI and I’d like to get a bit snappy there.

I only ask, as the SCG will not allow lenses over 200mm and mine is a 300mm, no tripods or monopods either. I’m up for the final match of the whitewash series, on my birthday. It’s not fun being a Pom these days.

Oh, before Mr Brightbugger replies; “why not e-mail and ask them?” I have. Three times. No reply. Funnily enough I left an expensive hat at the ground last PM’s XI, and e-mailed them inquiring after that too, with the same response.

Peruse the conditions of entry and make an educated guess. My guess is the only problem you would have is convincing them that your 300 mm lens is for “personal use” or that it doesn’t have the potential to cause injury or public nuisance ;-)

By contrast the SCG conditions of entry are much more specific (it would appear that if you tweeted that you were at the SCG and the Poms were doing well, that’d be a violation of the conditions of entry).

The capturing of images for commercial use or broadcast in any format

So, I can take in my camera and long lens, but I cannot put the images ion my blog?

INAL but wouldn’t that be narrowcasting? Oh, and by the way, you can’t put any photos you take at the SCG on your blog or even mention that you went there (gotta love the lawyers).

Focal length isn’t the issue, for a time Canon dSLRs came with a 150-300mm kit lens, and Canon still sells that diminutive, very crappy black lens for about $300. If it’s a white L series or the like, then you may face issues.

My friends in the states tell me they deal with these rules using the Sony RX cameras. They meet the letter of the law while taking the best photos you can get in that form factor.

(I have no financial interest in Sony, cameras or camera stores.)
