    May be you would convince the guide but you would have to convince other visitors from eight different countries in at least five different languages in which respect your camera is basically different from theirs. My Italian, French, Czech or Japanese is not good enough that I even tried to make an attempt

    Ulrich,

    I have been to photograph many places where I had to obtain a special permit to do so. I was thinking that it might be possible to arrange something with the distillery prior to arriving, by talking to them, explaining how the camera works, and that they perhaps could, against a fee, give a private tour where you could photograph with a manual camera.
    You know, so that other visitors can't see it.

    If you really want to photograph a place, you shouldn't give up at the first obstacle. Some people can be incredibly accommodating, as long as you treat them with respect and explain what you want to accomplish very clearly.

    And others might not be so accommodating. That's when you stop negotiating.

    If that's the case, then, why not take the tour, sans camera, and have a look around to decide what you want to photograph, if anything. After the tour, if you are so motivated, make the approach for permission to photograph.

    P.S.: If it is an old distillery, certainly make the pitch that photos will be (or SHOULD be) taken with an "old" camera. The appeal to tradition has its merits.

    I must admit that my interest in taking pictures of this place was not strong enough to arrange for a paid private tour. This may change a lot, especially if you go there off season.

    Maybe we will look for a distillery in Frankfurt, Ulrich. Looks like I may have convinced my wife to finally go someplace I speak the language. lol

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.
