And some venues say that they don't allow them, so you don't bring it in only to find out that everyone snuck them in and the security doesn't care..... happened at Pine Knob for the British Steel tour. The year before when we saw Metal Masters there, we snuck a camera in and they warned us they would take it away if we kept it up. So I suggest, sneak a small camera in and try your luck!!! They will warn you first and if you keep it up, then they'll take it away. It also depends on how close you are to security, if they even see you
Not really, Bud. Many venues here in the US stupidly restrict ALL cameras. Even point-and-shoots. Camerasphones? No problem. Makes no sense but it is true. Most cameraphones have lower resolutions than modern point and shoots but it still doesn't explain the idiocy. Especially when you can now get HD video from some devices that won't even set off a metal detector.
Depends entirely on the venue.
I can't speak for the rest of the world but around here they allow cameras because of all the camera phones.
What they don't allow is professional equipment (big lenses).
