Don't worry, if you say you can't, they will most likely borrow your DSLR to cover the event
* Horrorstruck * No one gets to touch my beloved cameras !! not even my mom who gifted it to me in the 1st place
my college mates would most probably end up damaging the camera or take photos on auto or in manual with wrong settings
but yeah if I do mention it, they will do anything to take me or my dslr for the events , dead or alive !!
