Unhappy Cameras at Siggraph?

Hi everyone,

2010 will mark my first time at Siggraph, and I am quite excited. I received an email from them yesterday, however, which rather explicitly stated that no cameras were allowed anywhere in Siggraph. To quote the message:

No cameras or recording devices are permitted at SIGGRAPH 2010. Abuse of this policy will result in the loss of the individual's registration credentials.

I hate to sound thick-headed, but does this really mean that absolutely no cameras can be used anywhere (i.e. even the floor)? I could understand that some companies don't want their talks to be recorded, but I have a hard time believing that I won't be able to snap a photo of some new insane hologram or software bundle. I fully respect proprietary information, but would like to take a photo or two...

Anyone know anything more specific?

Thanks!

This rule is ignored so often at the showfloor it is not even funny.

Probably better off waiting for the conference DVD - chances are they won't allow you to record any of the presentations.
