Kuwaiti DSLR Ban a Hoax
Last week photography blogs and news outlets across the internet reported that the country of Kuwait had banned digital slr cameras in public places. The report, based off an article by the Kuwait Times on November 20, was retracted 3 days later. The statement indicates that the newspaper failed to verify the information before publishing it.
The false news of a dslr ban had caused an uproar in the photography community due to its restrictions on virtually anyone, even journalists.
