A Ban on D-SLR Bans

I’m instituting a ban on reporting about ridiculously improbably D-SLR bans. I hate to say "I told you so," especially because I didn’t. But when I first read about the ban of D-SLR cameras in Kuwait it seemed to crazy to be true. I suppose the best news usually is, but still—it just seemed like the kind of improbable story that spreads like wildfire before anyone’s ever considered whether or not its true. It was the talk of the town, er, the photo-blogosphere, all week. And now, finally, comes the truth: it ain’t real. Read all about it, especially the part where the Kuwait Times printed a retraction of the original story, at The Online Photographer.
