Penguins Camera Policy

Carey and I are attending a Penguins game tomorrow, and try as I might, I can't find the camera policy for Mellon Arena (for Penguins games) at pittsburghpenguins.com.

I called. Point and shoots are fine. No detachable lens cameras. Oh well. At least we have the point and shoot.

    No doubt concerns over the sale of images without the permission of the Penguins, as well as concerns for other spectators. Most pro cameras aren't small.

  4. Only professionals would use an SLR, and professionals are not allowed to take pictures.

    I'm a non-professional who would use an SLR.

  6. That might have been a good policy… 10 years ago. Now everybody and their dog has an SLR.

    It's hard enough for experienced pro photographers to make a living. The idea that all of a sudden a bunch of amateurs in the stands will start making a ton of cash of shots from the crowd is total crap.

    The San Jose Sharks have a much more reasonable policy: no lenses over six inches. It's pretty fair, and totally objective. No having the $6/hour security guard telling you your camera is too "professional."

  7. [...] is one of the better shots from the evening. Going back to a point-and-shoot after spending so much time with a 5D really sucks. I couldn't even keep the flash from turning on [...]
