Vancouver Olympics SLR and Camcorder?

Hey guys. I have been getting conflicting information from a bunch of VANOC people. I was wondering if anyone knows if I can bring my SLR and Camcorder to events at the Olympics? I am going to opening ceremonies, mens hockey and figure skating. thanks

There's a thread on this very subject either on page 1, 2 or 3.
I can't search because I am typing this from phone, but the general idea was that anything is possible as long as you do not plan to sell those photos or gain money from it. For personal use, their website says everything is possible.

Now, you might have problems if you decide to bring Sigma 200-500mm f/2.8 lens in there.
Check that thread for more info.

I wouldn't take a video camera, not worth the hassle. Why not just record some tv? As well, keep in mind that if your bag is larger than 6 X 6 X 12 you have to get it x-rayed and wait in a longer line...
