Read what the Filmer named Yolticat wrote:
"It was not allowed. To say I was noticed is an understatement...there was quite a reaction from the public, some warned me to be careful; others suggested I stop filming; some just interested. On an S-Bahn platform I was accosted by a soldier inviting me to put the camera away immediately! I decided to accept this invite. Returning across the frontier, I had separated the camera and the film cassette for safety. Throughout the whole day in East Berlin I had not seen another camcorder.
