DSLR ban for UK tube stationNow this is a rather interesting bit of news – it seems that DSLRs are now banned from being used at a particular UK tube station, which would be the Aldwych tube station. This is an abandoned London Underground station which recently opened up for tours, where DSLRs were banned because of “their combination of high quality sensor and high resolution, digital SLR cameras are unfortunately not permitted inside the station”. Of course, smaller sized digital cameras are allowed to “participate”.

Perhaps there is some reason for this, where some other historical sites really do not allow the use of flash photography, while professional videographers and photographers will need to apply for licenses for off-hours shoots as well. I wonder whether the clever use of a Micro Four Thirds camera will be able to circumvent this ban, as they are certainly not large enough in size to be deemed as a DSLR, and yet are similar in some aspects to image quality captured.
