Thread: beacon photography policy

jimc20 - 4/7/2007 at 02:15 AM

couldn't find this subject anywhere else on the forum. anyone know the beacon's policy? are you allowed to have digital cameras? thanks.

sigh

excuse me for causing you grief, im interested in bringing my digital camera, but am uninformed on the policy. i searched the board and the beacons site for anything regarding this topic but came up with nothing. i guess its f'n retarded to ask a question on the abb forum about pictures at an abb show. thanks for nothing.

PhotoRon's response likely means that the question has been asked and answered before - just calm down.

I found this topic in a search:

I'll add that I don't know the policy, but there are tons of cameras in the theater in plane view all the time and I did not see anyone asked to put them away. I would still proceed at your own risk.

Hey JimC, I'm not 100% sure of policy, but I can tell you a few yrs. back when mgt. was more lax they nearly confiscated my camera. Had it not been for a good friend who knew some dudes on the inside Iwould be out a nice JVC. so I think the sigh was to inform you that it is taboo Ed


jimc20 - 4/7/2007 at 03:58 AM

thanks for the answers...i will proceed with some caution. Hope to see you guys on saturday night.

(btw wheres the setlist for tonight??)

I would say that if you were faced with the possiblity of losing your camera just take out the batteries and give them to the security person. They would likely leave you and your camera alone at that point I'd think.


jimc20 - 4/7/2007 at 04:02 AM

thats a really good idea, thanks.
all i want is a picture or two of the beacon while its the same, a couple of the brothers, and a couple of me and my friends at the show. not too much to ask i think.
thanks again.

Exactly what was to unfold,neb

You can bring a personal digital camera, just don't bring anything that is huge and bulky and will stick out of your pocket or whatever. Also, don't use the flash and you should be fine.

Bumping this to page one where it can be found.

yeah, cause it REALLY needs to be found.

Ron, maybe we could set-up a Beacon photo hotline ?


PhotoRon286 - 4/8/2007 at 09:19 PM

Someone else couldn't find any info on cameras at the Beacon.

Maybe they should have searched "photography" and found this thread from FRIDAY.

It was on page two when I bumped it.


BTW, why isn't Dickey playing with them?

I had no prob with my Canon S3 IS ( not SLR ) for Levon Helm Band and 2 nights of ABB- then Sunday 4/8 I strolled in as usual and the guy at the door looks at my camera, grabs my ticket, tears an end off of it and tells me 'Don't take that out of its bag or you'll be immediately expelled'... Then the ushers I saw seemed crankier than usual incl the tall guy with the beret in the Orch Left aisle who kept brushing me back into my seat ( on the aisle ) even tho both he and the 6'5" guy in front of me were blocking my view as much as they could... Whine bitch moan, yeah I know- wish I was headed to Wanee instead ( darn job- life will be so much better when zi'm unemployed, right? )


crowboy - 4/9/2007 at 03:30 PM

Also heard from taper folks that the ushers were getting rather testy with them too Easter Sunday & that Kirk W had to straighten them out on that topic. Maybe they all had a bug up their asses over having to work on a holiday...
