Re: m4/3 not allowed on Lower Antelope Canyon photo tour

What I'd like to understand is this - does this cat Rockwell OWN the Grand Canyon? I thought it was a national park - ie public property. No one has the right - including government officials - to tell you you can't take photographs - no matter what. It is, strictly speaking, a first amendment right. You are on public property and Mr. Rockwell has no more business telling you you can't take pictures - for any reason - than George Washington does (or Barack Obama or Carl Rove). I'm guessing he runs a popular guide service. It's fine if he prohibits photography under his guidance, but I'd find another guide. I'll never submit to someone like him telling me what to use. I don't know if there are other guides in the canyon, but I'd take a hard look at what his rights are in telling you that you can't take pictures because he doesn't like what you're shooting with. Since he's licensed to run his operation by the US government, his restrictions are probably illegal - even if he puts it in writing. It's a first amendment violation and I'd look into it. Rather, you should as I wouldn't pay for him to waste my trip.

The elimination of the mirror has introduced a new concept into the interchangeable lens digital camera market - compactness (kind of like what happened when Oscar Barnack created the Leica).
