This is true, however, i will say that i have gotten mine in there...in the leg pocket of my cargo shorts, not a camera bag.
Funny thing is i didn't know about this rule at that time and i was sitting in the fourth row on the corner (which is why i brought it) and nobody said anything to me.
I wasn't taking pictures the whole game, just got a few (probably between a dozen and two dozen) so very possible that nobody saw me.
Probably a fluke experience, but if you're sneaky enough... :ninja:



and what is the worst thats going to happen? you will get kicked out (maybe, which would suck) and they might take your memory card, so just bring a small one that you usually don't use.

You can take cameras in, you just technically aren't supposed to take SLR cameras in.
I've taken a camera to a game quite a few times.
And every pocket digital camera nowadays takes video...so technically it's a video camera too, but they won't confiscate a point and click camera that shoots video.
And to be honest, there are some pretty darn good point and click cameras out there.
