I am going to the game today too! I heard cameras aren't allowed, but they aren't too strict on it.

My question is what they won't allow cameras? Of course the fans would like to capture their experience there.

There was a thread about this at CL. IIRC, most regular consumer cameras are okay. There are size limits, so as long as isn't some huge, super hi-tech, 100gigapixel camera, then it should be fine.

Yea you can take cameras, Clips games are even more lax than Lakers. You can't take video cameras I think, or like SLRs where the lens is bigger than a credit card or something. Normal smaller digital cams are fine.

There are metal detectors and you have to put your metal items in the tray before you enter.
They never said anything to me with the camera placed on the tray

yep. you can bring em in. they just dont want cameras that have a good zoom or something. no fancy cameras. the standard digital cameras are fine.

Yup, I think that's around the size of a credit card. They just went up to my friend and compared the lens to a card.
