Pag naka DSLR ka, ma-pera ka?
I am not an Expert in Photography after ng 3 taong paggamit ko ng conventional Digital Camera, Nakabili narin ako sa wakas ng sarili kong DSLR camera at Excited akong magbakasyon sa Bayan namin sa Tanay, Rizal.
Upang makunan ang magagandang lugar sa Bayan namin tulad ng Daranak Falls at Batlag Falls.
Ngunit over this weekend may nabasa ako sa isang Thread sa Facebook na nagsasabi na merong kaukulang bayad di umano na sinisingil sa mga Bumibisitang may dalang DSLR/SLR.
Napaisip tuloy ako at na dissapoint kaya sinubukan kong gumawa ng isang research na galing sa mga Kapwa ko Bloggers.
Ito ang ilang Blogpost at Forum na tumutukoy sa Bayad di-umano sa Batlag at Daranak Falls.
“Batlag Falls the entrance fee is P50 but if you plan to bring a Dslr camera they charge P3000.Batlag falls is privately-owned and is popular shooting locations for movies and fantaserye.”
Daranak Falls (the one I photographed) is government property. Anyone can come in for Php20.
Batlag Falls, which is upstream, is private property. Anyone can still come in for an entrance fee of Php50. They are only strict with SLRs and video recording equipment for which they charge Php3,000.”
“What is the difference about digital camera na point and shoot and a dslr?”
“we were supposed to visit batlag falls as well which is just a couple of uphill-steps away, but unfortunately the caretaker of the falls didn’t allow us to enter the premises. for some reasons, visitors with dslr are not allowed to shoot inside unless you pay a whopping amount of Php3000+ for the “photographers-entrance-fee”.”
“Visitors going to Batlag Falls should be a bit more careful. What you do not see on the image above, is that if they see you bringing a dslr camera, they will charge you a hefty sum of P3000 to be able to take shots of the place! Of course, you have the option of not paying, but you would then have to leave your camera to the vendor.
Fortunately for us, when the lady owner heard me, my wife, and my mother, shouted “THREE THOUSAND PESOS??!!” simultaneously, she then allowed us to bring the camera without paying the fee. However for some, they weren’t fortunate so they decided to just leave the place.”
“The park is open from 8am-5pm.If you want to go to upstream there is Batlag Falls the entrance fee is P50 but if you plan to bring a Dslr camera they charge P3000.”
Ang mahal naman ng Bayad kung gagamit ka ng DSLR Hmm. galing kaya sa BIR ang resibo nila o may resibo kaya sila?
Pero wait, one time bumaba ang singil?
2008 P3K now P150.00?
“Crossing a wooden bridge and heading your way up a cemented trail will take you to Batlag Falls which unfortunately we weren’t able to see since the entrance personal was requiring me to pay P150.00 for bringing in a DSLR camera. According to them, the falls is a private property and they want to avoid publications and media use without their consent so paying A HUNDRED AND FIFTY PESOS ONLY would take care of the damage. “
Another Sad reviews:
But, Daranak Falls is too crowded. Not to worry, though. Just a couple of hundred steps more you can trail up and enjoy the less crowded Batlag Falls. We’re a little bit excited but that excitement watered down when the gatekeeper told us that DSLR cameras are not allowed, we should leave the camera to them, and get it back after we leave. Not wanting to go back to Daranak Falls nor leave the camera, we opted to give the battery instead and paid the 20 pesos entrance fee.
Comment on the post:
“We just went there today, when they saw us carrying DSLRs they wanted to charge us P3,000.00! “
“Please be mindful that they are vigilant to customers bringing SLR cameras. Just contest that you are an amateur photographer and they will let you pass. Having said that, they charge different fees if you will use the place as a shot location.”
—-The Bad Impression——-
“We are supposed to go to Daranak falls with just a Php 20 entrance fee & Php100 shed rental… But as I go through travel reviews Daranak falls don’t allow DSLR camera and some photoshoot (which is something that I don’t understand why???)… You have to pay additional Php 3000 for it!!! So we decided to go to Batlag Falls, a private falls located on the upper part of Daranak… 200% expensive entrance fee of Php 70 & picnic table of Php 250… still worth it for us…”
“2. Daranak falls 2000 ang fee”
I heard na merong naningil ng P1,500 sa isang Photographer sa Daranak Falls ngunit parang isang Isolated case lang iyon ang nakakapagtaka lang eh bakit sobrang laki ng singil ng Batlag Falls, na isang private property na taga Cainta, Rizal daw ang may-ari?
Halos magkanda-kuba ang ilang LGU Officials doon ma promote lang ang Turismo sa Bayan ng Tanay kasama na syempre sa kanilang pag promote ang Batlag Falls. Hayzzz
