Olympic Opening Ceremony - Hidden CameraWatch this video on YouTube
OK. So... I will be the first to ask.
How did it get through security?
What if it had been something else hidden?
Would it have been "great stuff" then?
Oh for the love of God
Quickest derail ever, well done you.
If it's anything like the cam I use on the bike it's tiny
Why would it be a problem? If you were checking people (presumably the people involved in the opening ceremony were considered trustworthy anyway or were already checked out) someone with a small camera poking through their clothing, wouldn't be a problem as ... it's a camera...
Pretty sure there were thousands of cameras in the stadium
Vid's on the Telegraph site.

Didn't take long

One thing interesting from opening ceremony and it's copyrighted-removed...IOC sucks But Gizmond rules http://gizmodo.com/5930202/what-the...s-looked-like-from-a-performers-hidden-camera
Exactly why I downloaded it and kept a copy locally for myself. Amazing video!
It got through security because last time I checked cameras are perfectly legal to possess and use. If it was something else it should and most likely would have been picked up by the rather robust security checks conducted at olympic venues.
legal to all but the Olympic committee who own all rights to broadcast any part of the game experience
Recording and broadcasting are different things though.
And it went straight onto youtube
Why not, the rules are only there to protect the commercial interests of McDonalds et al.
Same reason premiership football gets removed from you tube
Exactly, you'd think billion pound multi nationals could stand a few minutes of crappy online shaky footage but nooooooo.
It was the fact he described it as "hidden" that I picked up on, not that it was a camera. Of course lots of people have cameras at the Olympics, but not secreted about their body.
Fair enough, looking at it from a security point of view though it's not relevant whether it's in a bag or your pants when you come in. A camera is fine to take through.
I'd have expected all the participants to have signed/agreed to a set of conditions on participation, such as secrecy etc. I bet there would have been a clause about not taking any videos of photos, even for personal and non-publishing considerations.
The agreement says you can take photos, but that you cannot make them public until after the games have finished
Separate names with a comma.
