No DSLRs in Kuwait

Thinking about visiting Kuwait? Better leave your camera at home then – apparently the government just banned DSLRs from being used in public, unless it’s for journalistic purposes. Compact cameras and cellphone with cameras built-in are still ok though.

Why? At least according the local newspaper, the country has so little exposure to art, people tend to get afraid when seeing “big black cameras”.

And there I was, thinking people getting scared of “big black guns” are stupid. :-/
