    so I went to the AZ Cardinals vs. Seahawks game this weekend in Phx.....took my camera just to shoot around.......after walking almost a mile from the tailgate lot, standing in a huge line to get security checked, I got to the front and was told I was NOT allowed to carry my camera in. Point and Shoots are fine, but I guess anything with a detachable lens is not....

    I had to walk a long way back to my vehicle put the camera away and then walk all the way back to the stadium.

    I was not happy.

    That's pretty typical for most sporting events. They are pretty vague about what you can or can't bring...but they have the final say...so there isn't much you can do.

    Sounds like you were given a chance for some nice exercise. I also enjoy walking.

    Yep the NFL is strict on the camera rules, I’ve been able to take my camera to Marlins game in the pass but I have not tried in the last two years

    Same with a NHL game. I went to a game at the staples center. Their policy was that the lens had to be about 3" in length total. Photography rules are usually posted on the stadiums website. I know the staples one was.

    Edit: They updated it with this:

    (from the FAQ)Can I bring my camera and photograph a STAPLES Center event?
    No commercial or flash photography of any kind is permitted. Camcorders or any other audio/visual equipment is prohibited unless authorized by team/promoter or performer
