No Kuwait ban on DSLRs says paper
Kuwait Times says Ministries never issued law prohibiting use of the cameras by the public
Kuwait Ministries have not banned DSLR cameras in the region, according to a retraction printed by the Kuwait Times.
The newspaper issued an apology after their story, released on November 20, was proven false. Further investigations by the Kuwait Times revealed that the Ministries of Information, Social Affairs and Finance never prohibited the use of DSLR cameras by the general public.
The newspapers story claimed that amateur photographers were finding it hard to take photographs in public and some were switching to doing abstract and still life photography rather than taking photographs of people in public.
