I was in DC this summer with a friend, just goofing around with my FX1 shooting the Washington Monument and some other spots (I live in Northern VA, so it wasn't much of a drive) and a security guard was like, "What are you doing? Do you have a permit to be shooting a movie here? I need to see a permit." I basically told him I was just a student on vacation and had to 'trick' him into believing how 'unprofessional' the FX1 is. "I mean come on, it doesn't even have XLR inputs! LOL" We wound up packing everything up but the FX1 and heading to other locations.

To be fair, I did have my heavy duty bogen tripod setup, and my friend was holding my boompole with my sennheinser shotgun and blimp on the end... lol, I mean what vacationers don't bring heavy duty gear on vacation?

P.S don't ever go to an Aston Martin dealership at 1AM and film the cars...I had to prove to the cop that pulled up that we weren't creating a 'Gone in 60 Seconds' shopping was a wierd day
