They can't tell you not to take a picture because they don't like your gear - unless,of course, you are throwing your discarded polaroid wrappers in the river!

As detailed by Gordon Laing, you can go on a guided tour with any camera you like. You just can't get a permit to go on a "self-guided" tour without a DSLR. It's still a wholly absurd restriction and betrays a disturbing lack of knowledge about the caliber of modern mirrorless camera gear, but the point is that they're not actually flatly denying anyone access.

As other have said you could pick up a use E-420, broken E-1, or even a Canon AE-1 on ebay, and bring it along for access. Simple carry your mirrorless camera in you bag and have the old film SLR hanging from you neck for looks.

How about a 0.85mp fixed-lens Olympus C-1000L?

It really does have a mirror!

Nice camera, you can store all of 20 photos! On the downside, better hurry up and get some use out of it, its calendar only runs until 2016.
