i have just the cure now this should give them something to think about
dslr stands for Digital single lens reflex
so if i arrive with my nikon f5 i will be fine 'cos it is not Digital
or any medium/large format as long as no digital

Does this mean the man with a camera in the back of his head won't be allowed in?

In practice I suspect anyone with a "big camera" of whatever sort will be in breach of the rules.

We expect visitors to this country to respect our rules and laws so I have no problem with this personally, like was said earlier, just wished it worked both ways

Yes because in 2010 all terrorists use DSLR's. Duh.

funny thing is, 80% of the Kuwaiti public are foreigners

Perhaps the whole world is against DSLRs.

I think I'll get rid of mine! Grin

Well, how about a Fuji Finepix x100, then, CB?[

You don't have to go overseas to experience a ban on DSLR and SLR cameras, it is getting more and more difficult to practice our hobby in public areas in our own country.

I tried the Fuji HS10............. and sent it back! Grin The Panasonic TZ10, however, goes everywhere with me (and does HD video too).

I do get commissioned (very occasionally!) for some events and is probably my only reason for hanging on to the DSLR. Even then it is mainly used for video.

I have sold off most of the SLR lenses: down from five to one, now. But I am planning to add a fast portrait lens..... that's if I don't get rid of the whole lot of DSLR equipment!

Interestingly, I have been booked - for video - for an event next April. It is one where the 12-minute clip limit on the Canon 5D II could be a nuisance - and the 30-minute limit on the Panny TZ10 would make it a better choice... but not from a quality point of view! But perhaps getting rid of all my DSLR stuff and buying a top of the range (consumer-level) camcorder with the money would be the best option of all. Decisions, decisions! Smile

Anyone else noticed that the dSLR ban has not in fact been put in place. either it was another made up story or a quick change of position. I think I will file it next to stories about banning Christmas in the UK myself.

Read it yourself.


Quote: On Saturday, November 20, 2010 the Kuwait Times published an article titled 'Multi ministry camera ban frustrates artists' in which incorrect information was provided. The newspaper regrets failing to verify the information. The article wrongly stated that a ban on DSLR cameras was implemented by the Ministries of Information, Social Affairs and Finance. This information is false. In a follow up investigation, it was proved that no such ban has been issued. We regret this error and deeply apologize for any inconvenience caused.

They have the same ban in North Korea...and I wouldn't want to go there either.

According to BBC TV this morning ("Click" on BBC News-24) the ban has been introduced.
