p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Ford Field Lions Photography question?


I'm not sure if sports is exactly the right forum for this but here goes:

Anyone tried to bring a dSLR into a Lion's game at ford field? I looked at the official allowed/banned list and it says lenses under 5" but I'm not quite sure if they enforce that from "back of camera" or from lens mount? Are they strict?

Anyone tried or went to games recently?

And if so suggestions?

I have a 105VR thats my longest lens < 5" but I can rent something too.

Sitting in section 106 row 5.

Any advice appreciated.

Tim

I have season tickets, front row in the end zone.

I take a sigma 24-70 lens in and they check it every time.... so yes they do enforce it. I tend to leave the lens hood in the car as they might try to consider that part of the length.

The people at the security gates are trained to know how far up their hand 5" is, they all measure with their hand and if there are questions they call in someone else.

I guess I would recommend not risking it....

Put a small lens on the camera and keep the longer lens detached and put it somewhere else. I have done that and I have been able to get. 70-200 into other venues. Or just scrap the camera all together and just enjoy the game, lol

More like 7 1/2 inches long. A 100-400 is shorter? Am I thinking of the wrong lens?

I always thought if I was going to do this, something that fit under and a 2X in my pocket? But instead I just take a P&S.
