I took this shot as soon as we got inside. If you decide to go with a camera though, be careful that you don't take one with a very long zoom. Last season I brought my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 which has an equivalent max of a 600 mm zoom lens. As I was taking pictures of Kobe Bryant (Lakers v Rockets in Dec., 2015), an usher grabbed me and made me check the camera at their Customer Relations stand. I had to leave it there until the end of the game. This time, I just put my wide angle on my Fuji X-T1 which looks big, but cannot zoom in on anything. They gave me a bit of a hard time when we entered because it looked like a zoom lens. However, they reluctantly agreed after I explained what it was and showed them that it didn't zoom much at all. Moral of the story, don't take a telephoto lens to the Toyota Center or any lens that will extend more than a couple of inches. That's the only place that's been a pain when it comes to cameras that I've experienced so far.
Last thing, I shot this pic with a 1/12 sec shutter speed. It ain't the most perfect shot, but still pretty darn clear handheld don't you think?
