Can I bring a camera to the Aquarium?

We are going to the Georgia Aquarium on Tuesday.

Does anyone know if it's okay to bring a camera?

Since this reviewer has photos he took of the Aquarium, I'll say yes. If you look in one of the photos, people are holding up cameras.

Camera, yes. But you can't use a flash.

You can use flash, but it'll just reflect off the acrylic and you get a big white spot on your photo.

Some exhibits, such as the octopus, have signs that say No Flash. As such, I would infer that on the other exhibits you could use a flash. Because the lighting is low, if you are taking pictures of people standing in front of exhibits, you would probably want to use the flash.

Thank you again.

I am just back from the aquarium!

I carefully adjusted the camera's white balance so that I could take many pictures without using flash.

Thank you!
