Kuwait Government Bans DSLRs

Yes, you read it right.

In an almost hilarious act of utter retardation, in Kuwait, the Ministry of Information, Ministry of Social Affairs and Ministry of Finance have decreed that photography should be used for journalism only, and as a result, DSLRs have been banned in public places.

Of course, we all know that DSLRs are more dangerous than a Heckler & Koch MP5 submachine gun, and should be outlawed so that the human race may be saved.  Naturally, the ban does not apply to compact cameras and mobile phone cameras.

    I note the retraction has now been placed at the top of the linked article. It was a great story while it lasted. ;-)

    Looks like Australia may still lead the way.

    Cheers
