It's about the tripod more than anything else...

When I was trying to setup a tripod - got approached by the security guard. He told me that the use of professional camera equipment is not allowed inside the mall and in order to use it I need to get a permit from the mall office. Went to the office and was told that the permit cannot be issued on the spot - I need to fill some kind of form and it can take up to 2 weeks to get approval.

They don't want people tripping on the tripod!  If you used that camera handheld you wouldn't have been noticed (I've never been noticed).

If someone used a light duty tripod they would have been asked not to use it too!
