Since more and more videos are appearing on both youtube and here, I would like to ask you all "filmers" how can you get your video gear to the venue ? And of course do the security guys have the right to take it ?

It was the same in Glasgow. I walked in with a stills camera in a sizeable camera bag. The bag I had was big enough to have my Sony HC7 HD camera fit in it! If only I'd know how lax they were, I would've maybe chanced it!

But anyway, most people can get videos easily on phones and cameras that actually look and sound decent. Too hard and ridiculous to stop everyone from coming in with their phones and digital cameras.

The sign up at Glasgow said something like, No PRO digital cameras (35mm) or video/audio recording equipment. Or something to that effect. I walked in with my DSLR in a blatantly obvious bag and an audio recorder in my pocket.

Adam.

That's a tough question, I often end up sticking the camera to a pocket and enjoying the show...

If your camera is small, buy a thin material bumbag and stick it down your front. If you are lucky, people will just think you've got a big one! Depends if you've much room down there :)

Check your mail.
It's best not to discuss this matter in public.

Very lax in Cardiff. Thery only scanned your ticket!! You could have walked in with a TV camera or a panavision movie camera!!!  Great to see this - bootleggers paradise.

In Hamburg there were lots of signs "no cameras, no video, no recording etc." and everybody was searched very thoroughly, it held up the entrance very much. It was almost like at the airport, they even searched my ankles if I had something in my shoes! The ladies were searched by women. Some people still got their digital cameras in, because they didn't dare to search ladies' handbags (at least not in my queue)! How silly!
After all I'm not surprised, that no Hamburg recording has turned up yet. It's a shame, because it was a great show.

... well, it would only be normal for a lady, especially if she's been travelling a long way to the venue, to carry a small-ish pouch in her bag, containing an assortment of items related to private hygiene: I somewhat doubt that even the strictest security at the gates would be too willing to fumble in there, should a tiny camera be hiding under the stuff...

Maybe the "airport-like" check was mostly to prevent people from carrying weapons into the venue...?
