My purse was checked twice but cameras were everywhere! This was at the United Center in Chicago. I don't think it should be that much of a problem.

When I went no one cared about cameras as long as they weren't large professional ones or videos. Cheap cameras and disposables were everywhere, even in U2's faces. Nobody said a thing.

You shouldn't have a problem and I brought a semi-pro one in with me... just no zoom lens.

As a tip - if I were you and you're really worried, take some extra film and batteries in your pocket or something in case they took them... that's what I did!!! Check out my pics here if you want!

So, I should probably use 800 spd film w/ my less than great camera? And, they let cameras into Staples Center right? To bad I'll be in the seats, but I'm still taking pics dammit.

Can I bring a camera to the concert or do I have to sneak one in?

How easy or difficult is it to bring a camera to the arena for the concert? I would like to take my camera, but I am not sure if I can.

Hi All,

Staples center was pretty cool with the camera policy. Just no professional cameras allowed!! I took my small APS camera and when they wand you in the GA line to get into the arena, I just had it in my hand so that they could see it.

I got some good pictures, and tried something different for Tuesday's show and shot with Black and white film. Some came out nice!! Wish I had a scanner!!

Anyway shouldn't be a problem in LA!! Hope this helps!

LOL My bro hid the camera around his ankle cause he has baggy jeans.. couldn't even tell! And my cousing put hers inside her blouse... I dunno how but she said she did! LOL Good luck!

LOL... I too have seats, but I thought I would take a chance and try to take some pictures. I hope that they come out okay. If they do, I will post them. Thanks again for all the advice! I am so bad at sneaking stuff in or out. So I would hate to sneak in a camera and have it confiscated. I remember when I was in college I tried to steal a beer sign from a bar. I stuck this huge ZIMA sign in my shirt (mind you I was drunk) and tried to walk out of the club with. Of course the security guards saw half of it hanging out of my shirt. They asked me if I was stealing anything. I told them no! They then told me to lift up my arms (I was clutching my shirt tight so the sign would not fall out) and when I lifted up my arms, out came the stupid sign. Anyway, it was really funny. Thanks again!
