Thanks Chris. Just found this via a new Forum thread falling out of the recent BFP launch of their 'Blue Card'...

BFP card would be even handier if it fitted in your wallet? or is it designed by people with very large wallets!! Wink

Thank you. It is easy in this social bully climate to think this is no longer a free country and that this is therefore no longer true.

Just a question. I will be visiting the UK soon and want to take the new Nikon D80 out and about. I have seen a few posts floating around about 'harassment' of photogs in public places. Is this something I should be overly concerned about?

Thanks.

Without being picky, just in case some smart person in Scotland or Wales tries it on, for English law read British.
I am ex police and have had all sorts of reports of "offenders" taking pics in public places-NONE verified.
There is nothing to prevent law abiding citizens from taking photos in public, however refineries, military establishments and other obviously sensitive locations are off limits. If you are challenged and left with no option but to hand over your film/memory card, do the following:
1. memory card only
2. take name and number of officer
3. make a note of what he she says are the grounds/act and section
4. get a receipt
5. DO NOT HAND OVER YOUR CAMERA
6. VERIFY officer's identity by phoning his/her control room then and there and get the duty Inspector (there will be one) to quote a call reference number and to verify the legal grounds the officer is acting upon.
THEN-when you have been found to be in the right-COMPLAIN and seek compensation.

Could do with one of those here in Australia,photographers seem to be terrorists or pedophiles until proven innocent.

No idea - I am no lawyer but as far as I know nothing has changed except the anti terrorist legislation, which this card covers. As far as I can see they seem to say the same thing in different ways.

Though if you know different I am happy to update it.

Thanks for this, wish I had this back in November when I took a pic of workers putting up the christmas lights in town

Very helpful ( do we know anymore on whether it has changed)?
