DSLR cameras allowed?

Postby D-Lightning » Thu Mar 17, 2011 10:56 am

This is always an issue i find there to be at Nets games. I have a DSLR camera and would like to bring it. However I have seen people get turned away trying to bring them to games and yet last game I went to I saw at least 3-4 people with cameras.

If we could get definitive clarity on this issue it would be great.

From Prucenter.com-"Small, non-professional still cameras may be brought into the Prudential Center. Please note that for certain events cameras may not be allowed into the arena. Video, audio, and professional camera and recording devices are prohibited. Fans may not reproduce any film, digital, video or audio recording for commercial purposes without the express written consent of the Prudential Center."

That still leaves a little of a gray area but I think DSLR cameras would be considered professional. It just is how strict security is on letting you in with it. You might get a young kid who just sees it as a regular camera, or you might get someone who turns you away. My advice would be if you are bringing the camera make sure you drove to the arena and can head back to your car in case they give you a hard time.
