    Is it true that Sweden has just banned all drones with cameras?

    Yes - the poor OP will only be able to watch other people's videos and partake in discussions on here.
    All drone flying in Sweden is totally banned - Everywhere.

    It's not a ban, but a very strict restriction - only allowed with a permit, which is difficult to acquire.
    The court has ruled that since drone camera is operated from a far without being in the "immediate vicinity" of the operator, then it's legally a surveillance camera, which means it falls under the Swedish Camera Monitoring Act, which requires operators of surveillance cameras to have a licence.

    It sucks very much.

    This isn't correct. The ban applies only to drones that have cameras.
