You see this mentality all the time... If you live in metro or suburban area and walk within 100 feet of a shop/restaurant then you are already on camera... usually multiple cameras, and people don't care one bit.

But put that camera into the hands of a person instead of attached to the wall and people will flip the fuck out about invading their privacy.

Note: You have no expectation of privacy when out in Public... this why it's called public. Don't want to be filmed? Stay home. People have a right to film anything happening out in public... you, however, do not have any "right to not be uncomfortable" in public.

I agree with what you are saying, but could it also partially be because people don't expect the feed from the security cameras to be posted on instagram, but some person taking pictures most likely WILL share it online?

All I can say is too bad. I like going down to the local strip and taking street photos of people. You're on the street, I can take your photo, end of story.

Too bad.

You're in public. If you want privacy, go to private.

The cure for not having people on Instagram seeing you act a fool in public is to not act a fool in public. Not to bitch at me that I can't take all the pictures that I am legally within my rights to do.

Right. The Apple Maps car may have 77 cameras, but it's going to blur everyone's faces before adding it to their maps. The guy asked not to have his photo taken because his face won't be blurred and will most likely be posted to the internet for everyone to see and judge. Hence, this post.

That probably has more to do with the possibility of ending up on the Internet and being mocked.

Implying that can't happen with security footage. Plus, acting like a prick toward someone with a camera over not wanting to be made fun of is probably exactly what people would be mocking you for.

you would be surprised how many of them end up on the internet. Do you think that lady that fell on her ass when trying to sit on someones car was someone with their own camera, nope, it was a security camera.

I'm not a fan of being recorded, in private or in public. If someone is recording me, I ask them not to record me. I know they have a right to do so in public, but I also have the right to make a polite request not to be recorded or have my photo taken. The few times this has happened to me, the person taking photos was understanding and respected my request. Probably helps that I didn't immediately get defensive or combative.

I also think that the reason people would make that request to an individual on the street is because the person behind the camera is right there. If someone doesn't want to be on a security camera, it's a lot more difficult to find the operator of the security camera or the person who's responsible for it and make the request to not be filmed. And even if you went through that trouble, it's a lot of time out of your day for a request that's likely to go nowhere.

Samething happened to me with a google car. Pulled up next to him at an intersection and wanted a photo of the car to show people at work. Took a few and the guy rolls down the window and starts cursing me out saying how he doesn't want to be on camera.

In the summer I drive at weddings with an old VW samba bus. When I drive this in public, people take pictures. After a few hours, it's very annoying when people literally stands right infront of the car and snaps photos. I don't want my face on your holiday-pictures :-\

So... what I'm saying is that he probably just was sick of people taking pictures (of him). And don't take the picture right up peoples faces. Go a little to the side or something.

I just put on some big shades and ignore them though.

And Google blurs faces, unlike those taking the photos, so the irony is pretty much thrown out the window once that's taken into consideration.

I doubt this is a corporate policy in either case, just the occasional bitchy driver who happens to be driving something worth taking a picture of.

Perhaps having 77 cameras isn't the best disguise I'm thinking. I'm no professional though.

He was using apple maps navigation to get to the location and he had to switch to google maps to bet back on track

Also Wifi/Cell tower triangulation is a lot cheaper on the battery than GPS itself

I always wondered why google maps thought wifi I couldn't connect to would help it find my location. Now I know.

Thanks.
