Question about Lincoln Field (Philly)

Discussion in 'Sports Photography' started by dgcrane, Sep 10, 2008.

  1. First off, let me say that I am totally not a sports fan.

    That being said, I am heading to Philly next weekend from Ottawa, Canada with 10 buddies for an NFL game. I was thinking that it may be fun to take a big lens (300mm f2.8) to try and get some photos, but we have standing room tickets and never experiencing a game before I am nervous that I may be overwhelmed with people. Should I bother or will it be too much hassle and worry being in the general standing section ?

    Thanks for any thoughts or advice.

  2. If you have never experienced Philly fans, then leave your stuff at home and enjoy the game. Pretty sure that you wouldn't be allowed in with a 300mm anyway, although I could be wrong.

  3. Could you elaborate as to what Philly fans are like ? Sounds fun :)

  4. Pretty rabid about their sports.

    They threw snowballs at Santa Claus.

  8. I looked online and it says that still cameras are fine as long as its in a bag < 12" x 12" X 12", which means I would be out of luck with the new D90 I guess :) 
     
  9. I have taken my D2x and 300 2.8 to several eagles games, the camera bag has to fit in a cutout they have, go to the fields web site an look for dimensions Keep the lens and the camera seperate in the bag my d2x and 300 2.8 fit just fit but fit
