Kuwait bans dSLRs

Thursday, November 25th, 2010

The prophet uses mirroless and so should you. As it turns out, Kuwait has banned the use of dSLR cameras in public places. Accredited photojournalists are exempt from the ban. Apparently it’s not a joke, although we were inclined to think so.

Update: Kuwait Times, the online newpaper responsible for this rumor, has issued a retraction.

Silly photography restrictions

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009

This is rather silly. A school in Devon had banned parents from photographing and filming their own kids during sports day, reports the Telegraph. They claim it was due to changes in child protection and images legislation. Interesting enough, aside from the controversial decision regarding photographing police officers involved in counter-terrorist activities, there are no other changes whatsoever. The full story you can read here. This reminds me of a South Park episode in which the kids are sent out of town in order to prevent their own parents from abducting them.
