14 military camps to allow servicemen to bring in camera phones
14 military camps in Singapore will allow servicemen to bring in camera phones starting 1 September.
Previously, all camera equipped mobile devices were disallowed in camps.

Camps will be divided into 'green' and 'red' zones.
'Green' zones are where camera phones will be allowed.
When a servicemen enters a more sensitive 'red' zone, camera phones have to be temporarily surrendered.
Pulau Tekong Camp, Bedok Camp and Khatib Camp are part of the trial.
