Credentialed journalists at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia will not be allowed to use anything other than professional-level photo and video equipment, the state-run R-sport news agency announced in a training seminar on Friday. Any reporter caught snapping with a cameraphone or tablet for instant transmission will have their credentials stripped, and fans likewise will be banned from bringing "nonprofessional" cameras or video equipment into the stadiums.
