I called Toronto Eaton Centre

- 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. WTF?


Just called Toronto Eaton Centre Guest Services and I was informed that within the mall's policy there is absolutely no problem whatsoever with visitors using dslrs with professional lenses as long as you're not pointing directly into shops. However for safety purposes and other you do have to make arrangements if you plan to set up a tripod.

Seems reasonable enough to me !
