As a photographic website I'll spare the talk of the wedding itself, but I couldn't help do some camera spotting during the coverage.

In the build up they showed some of the press pits, and there were certainly a whole bunch of long lenses in there. Hard to say but around half or maybe more were white.

I don't know who it was, but there was a young lady in a blue dress taking shots with a SLR, flash+diffuser as Kate got in the car on the way to the church.

During the ceremony itself, the videography was generally great although a couple of the cameras weren't level at times. During some parts, you could hear the rattle of a SLR firing although I didn't spot it at any time. It was a bit distracting.

In the crowds were a serious number of compacts, point & shoots and camcorders. There were the odd DSLR and I thought I spotted one stuper-tele outside Buckingham palace getting ready for the balcony appearance shortly.

Side note: I was wondering about the wheel camber angle of the coaches too...

I also looked for camera types, if a camera was not level, who cares, enjoy the moment. :o

Cheers

I had to buy my wife the "Bild am Sonntag" with its 21 page supplement of the royal wedding because she was too busy helping me with my first exhibition to watch everything on TV :roll:
