Hong Kong Police Use Professional Cameras to Capture the Faces of Protesting Civilians

On Sunday, February 23, citizens protested in Tuen Mun Park for the second day in a row.

A large team of armed riot police, geared by photographic equipment, were deployed at the scene. Among them, a police officer was sighted holding a Canon 5D Mark IV camera with a 70-200mm lens, probably for taking close-up photos of civilians.

Although the police were equipped with very professional photographic equipment, they were found not knowing well about the equipment.

When a reporter was taking photos with a wide-angle lens, frontline police stopped and questioned him for taking close-up headshots of police officers. The reporter had to present a photo to prove that the wide-angle lens were for ambiance shots instead of close-ups.

It seems that police officers were very concerned about their close-ups being captured by the press.
