A Response From SOCOG
By Joe Traver, SOCOG

Regarding a one-sport variance of the Olympic no-strobe policy Strobe use at Basketball:

Pursuant to a letter dated 4 November 1999, the Sydney Organizing Committee for the Olympic Games (SOCOG) has followed a policy for the limited use of photographic strobe lights as "strongly recommended" by The Federation Internationale de Basketball (FIBA - the international basketball federation). It is common place and part of normal sports photography production to utilize short-duration electronic flash, especially in the US and with the NBA.

The tentative use of strobes will take place only for semi-final and final games played in the Sydney Super Dome at Olympic Park. The preliminary games are at the Dome and Pavilions where the ceilings do not have catwalks and thus will not support strobe use.
