MSG and DSLR/Cameras

Sorry if I posted this in the wrong section, do you guys know the exact MSG rules/regulations regarding DSLRs?

"Video cameras, monopods, tripods, audio recording devices and cameras with telephoto or zoom lenses, including SLR's, are not permitted inside Madison Square Garden at any time. This policy will be strictly enforced. You may bring in disposable or 35mm camera (with no zoom or telephoto lens), however, for some events, cameras of any type and/or flash photography may be prohibited."

That is from the garden page. When they say telephoto, what is considered a telephoto?

Considering that almost every phone these days can zoom, and the iPhone 4 and 4S have extremely bright flashes (the 4S rivals most standard digital cameras by the way) I highly doubt this policy is enforced.

I think it really just prevents you from lugging some huge video/camera equipment into the stadium. There's no way there gonna be able to snuff out people with small digital cameras or iPhones, etc. -- that ends up pissing off your customers more than protecting assets/players.

You will be ok with say a 18-200 lens. Pro glass (like a 70-200 f2.8 or a 300 f4) might get you noticed.

Pocket Cameras are easily brought into a game. Even when they pat you down, they don't say anything about it. Never tried a DSLR though.

mfw thread about dSLRs
Everyone talks about P&S/phones


Anyway, The 80-IQ slobs in the lobby pretty much go "derrr, big camera no-no" but its pretty easy to get a high quality set-up into the building.

Take a smaller dSLR (say, D90/D3000) and pair it with a 85 1.8 or a 105 2.8 and you can get top level photos from an innocent looking package.

I brought in a Nikon D300 in a separate camera bag, with a 50mm prime, a 30mm prime, and an 18-200mm telephoto, and the door guy who checked it out said "nice camera. Have fun!"

I guess what my concern is, is just getting past security with my size camera. its NOT a dslr, but it kinda looks like one.

Is the picture you posted the same kind of camera that you have? I have a similar one and have never had any problems with it.

Security is a joke a MSG.

I think the only time you might get hassled is by the actual ushers, who would tell you to put it away. I've never seen anyone get hassled getting into the building.
