You can have dslr's in the camping area. It's only when you go through the entrance to Centeroo where you have to scan your wristband and get searched that they can turn away.
But something to consider, it's going to be hot this year. I wouldn't want to leave my dslr in my locked car. And I sure wouldn't want to leave it unsecured. So it does present a dilemma. They do make some kickass point and shoot cameras now. I bet you could almost do as well with one of those.
This thread is making me nervous about bringing corn again this year lol. I'll never forget the feeling of seeing the DEA with the dog's last year, luckily we went right through the line with a volunteer who barely looked.
I remember reading some posts saying that certain sets they don't let you record videos and such. How will I know what sets I can't bring my camera to? I just picked up my new gopro today and I don't want to worry about having to go back and put it back at camp
Up until the year before last Tennessee had a Democratic governor. For some reason they elected a staunch right-wing religious conservative Republican whose first year was last year. It might be me, but I noticed an increase in LE last year outside the event.
