Slobodan, you need to look at the corrected sign.

Rob, I certainly can agree with you that 8 x 10 stand cameras could be a problem... but because they use sheet film and have "movements?" I assume these asses are talking about swings and tilts.

Rob, where did you find any mention of "large cameras" or "tripods" in the sign in question?



Slobodan: see link below.

Russ and Rob,

You surely must have noticed that the "corrected" sign is a spoof, no!?

No. I don't usually dig into stuff like that.

Can an inanimate object really be discriminated against?   Huh   
I often discriminate against my PC, for example, when I kno purrfeckly wel how to spell awurd and it but the stoopid macvhine messes it all up.   Angry

Also: It was obvious to me that the "improved" sign was a spoof, perhaps because that's just the way my own warped mind works.

Yes, I know it's fashionable on this forum to attack any sign of authority or of restriction on photograhy, but doesn't it occur to anyone that large cameras and tripods, especially tripods, can be a damned nuisance in various instances, the confines of a tube station being one such. I assume we are talking about an Underground stop? I'm not terribly au fait with London, going there only when unavoidable.

If that was really the purpose of the sign, it's pointless. I'm sure there are already rules in the Tube by-laws against blocking exits and hindering flow of people. One doesn't need a camera to do that. And photographers who do that can be already told to move on according to existing rules.

From a dictionary:

"make an unjust or prejudicial distinction in the treatment of different categories of people or things"

Well damn.. guess so.   Seems odd though.

Well.. I can see that.  But if anyone really feels like getting annoyed visit Wat Rung Khun and you'll be greeted by this sign:


If you speak Thai you can get around this.  Personally I think it was put up for the Korean tourists who have earned quite a reputation for being loud and boisterous regardless of the venue.

Come to think of it, there is also a concept of "price discrimination" in economics.

If you don't see a problem with the sign, it's pointless to continue this.
