    the datafile is written to memory in a sequential manner, so if u r using a new cards/reformatted card - after deleting the file, the chance of recovering is very good.

    i think most photographers here who dabble in street will not mind having their own picture taken actually, since they know what and why the picture is taken. of course, this applies only to a certain extent.

    why you are getting heated replies is really because of your tendency to make generalising, sweeping statements with not much to back it up.
    I see.. lol, i also do street photog, but i dun get such reactions.. Maybe those people i take of are also people who do street photog?

    lol, i really did saw a couple of street photog who kena that, thats why, i post the way like that..So as to see how do other photographers generally react.. No offence to all those who reply me with heated words.. coz that time i saw that photog guy kena, and he tried explaining and showed his camera to the other guy, but the other party kept scolding and wanted to do body harm.. I almost went up to help, but the situation was diffused by a guy.. wonder how he did it sia..

    But another question is, what will u do if the "victim" threatens body harm, even though u already showed him the photos u taken.. and does not back down from confronting you.. coz i dont think u can call the police down in time, so what do u do at that point of time?

    lol, dun ask me go study political science and become negotiator sia.. i si bei chui de.. if ask me go become negotiator like the guy who diffuse the situation between the photog and the "victim", in my previous post. i confirm chui..

    We have an entire, long FAQ on photographer's rights already posted here. why not read up and enlighten yourself instead of posting ill-informed comments that are basically rubbish?

    Smile and ignore him. If he touches me, I subdue him. Then I call the cops and have him arrested.

    So unless u have a better idea on how to deal with this sort of people, please share with us..

    anyway, i hope those who read my posts, read them thoroughly, please try to understand first, what i'm trying to say or ask before replying.

    coz ultimately, the question here is, (coz i believe many of you might have met some people who scold u even when u are not taking their photos), how do you deal with them, even if they threaten to harm you.. coz i have seen photographers who were threatened with body contact when the question is that the photographers didnt even take their photos in the first place, and that even thought the photog show the "victim" the photos they took, and none of the photos, i believed, contains the "victims" images.. and yet they threatend to do the sort of body contact i have mentioned..

    and in case u just see the middle part only, this is the question i'm asking about,

    so, how do each and everyone of you react to this sort of situation? coz different photographers have different types of ways to react to this sort of situation.

    anyway, be happy and relax when replying!
    now i am confuse, in ur previous post, u wrote :

    coz personally, if i suspect the fellow is taking my photo, delibrately taking, and i ask to see the the photo and he doesnt and acts suspicious, i will just break his fingers..

    so with that statement, is that what u how u will react? or u r quoting others reply (if so, u should highlight u r quoting others reply lar)?

    sorry i have mis-understood.

    actually it was my bad, coz i wanted to know how different photographers react mah, for me, if i ever meet this guy or someone like him, i will run like crazy to 10 blocks away.. (coz i still remember his face, not sure if he seen my face though)

    and if i were to quote, i wouldnt get to know how different photographers react, coz everyone will be like, chey, he's just quoting.. and i know there's the photographers' right, but i dont think it will get u out of harms way even if u quote to the guy who is so angry that he wants to hantam you sia..

    and eh, actually, no.. i wasnt quoting anyone coz i saw and heard it for myself.. nothing beats hearing and seeing the things happening before ur eyes which will leave u bewildered and scared at the same time..

    ooo.. thanks zac.. thanks, coz i really cannot find this, unless its somewhere deep inside the sections..

    anyway, thanks!!

    But, like the title says, and i just adding on, how do u react if someone threatens u and keeps confronting u even if u apologize and show them u never took the photo? coz the photographer's rights which i just seen doesnt cover what happens if u are threatend with body harm by a person even if u nvr take their photos, coz i seriously only seen and heard, but havent kena yet.. so if u have any ideas or suggestions, please pm me or post up here as a form of precaution as to what to do.. sorry if i go off topic. i think i should go make a new topic.. hope to hear from u guys there!!
