bringing in FZ1000 to MSG, Verizon Center and Prudential Center
« on: December 19, 2015, 04:18:16 PM »
anyone got any experience with bringing in a big camera to those locations?
in Europe wherever I go I take my FZ1000, I wear it with a camera belt visible to anyone
my monopod I hide in my jeans...
always works...
hope to bring them in to the shows I am going to, I don't see any fun no more in recording with digital compact cameras which never cause problems with security but I want to make nice films...

can't help you with US since I am located in Europe too, but would you care to elaborate how you get in the fz1000, please? What do you say to security at entrance and how do you deal inside the venues? Which venues have you been filming in with? I recently got one and I hope you can give me the best advice possible! Thanks in advance!

Many venues stipulate no cameras with removable lenses here in the U.S.  So if the FZ1000 has removable lens it is something to be aware of. Tripods are also on the restricted list but a monopod shouldn't be a problem, it could be open like a walking stick without concealing it.

^ Sometimes going in like you own the place is a solid strategy.  Probably not so much in the big US venues.  A lanyard around your neck with a bunch of passes attached may complete the look though  ;D

^ This. 9/10th's of the time they don't even look at what the laminates are.

I know of a filmer who made his own laminates back in the late '80s and early '90s.  He'd go to the back of the arena and walk in like he was part of the crew, go find the sweet spot to film from and tell people sitting there that he worked for the band and was videotaping the shows so they had to make room for him - and he got away with this time and time again.  Even venue security bought his story, so he filmed unencumbered.
