Thread: Are Olympus Pen's allowed inside Coachella?

    Default Are Olympus Pen's allowed inside Coachella?

    Hello,

    I have read online that Professional cameras are strictly not allowed inside the festival.

    This to me seems like bulky Digital SLR's, however, I read further that this includes any camera with an interchangeable lens.

    I am considering taking in an Olympus Pen next year which does in-fact have an interchangeable lens, yet is still regarded as a point & shoot digital camera.

    Does anybody know/think it will be allowed inside the festival, I just don't want to get denied at the gate after purchasing one soon.

    It looks just like this...

    Thanks!

    People get dslr cameras in everyday. Itall depends how intense your line is getting searched.

    Ohh okay, so it really just boils down to how intense each line is for searching at the gates?

    I was hoping that they wouldn't even regard this type of camera as a dslr & have no problems at all with getting it in.

    Thanks for replying!

    Perhaps the interchangeable lens rule should be revisited? More and more cameras nowadays have interchangeable lenses. I myself have a Sony NEX, which is not a dslr or professional but it does have an interchangeable lens and I did not risk bringing it and not being let in since I took the shuttles.

    My niece tried to get an old russian film camera in but she was turned away because it had an interchangeable lens.
