New Camera Policy at Regionals

Published on Wed, 2014-05-07 09:25

Keep lenses under 5-inches long, and don't pack your tripod.


Four things to know before you pack your camera for regionals:

1. Your lens must be less than 5 inches (12.7 cm) long.
2. You cannot bring in a tripod or monopod of any sort.
3. You’ve got to turn off the flash.
4. You cannot distribute any image or video for any commercial purpose.

If you pack a camera with a 6-inch long lens or a tripod, you will be told to take it out of the venue. Spare yourself the 800-meter sprint to your car by bringing a camera that fits the policy.

Press approved by CrossFit will be allowed to bring in equipment that exceeds these limits for pre-approved purposes.

Camera and Video Equipment Policy

Subject to these rules, non-professional, non-flash photography and video cameras are permitted for personal use only. All cameras—video and still—must be handheld with an interchangeable or telephoto lens no longer than 5 inches in length.

Monopods, tripods, and cameras with telephoto or interchangeable lenses greater than 5 inches in length (professional photography equipment) are not permitted.

Spectators, attendees, visitors and guests may not distribute, use, reproduce, stream, upload, transmit, broadcast, link, exploit or license any description, account, images, pictures, film, digital, video or audio recording for any commercial purpose without the prior express written consent of CrossFit Inc., in each instance.
