Have you ever been in a situation, say, a casual family function where you are having a good time with the children and you think to yourself, "they are going to remember and cherish this moment." Then out of nowhere someone ruins it by taking out their camera and demanding everyone stop and pose for a picture? Eversince the advent of inexpensive digital cameras you just can't seem to have a nice laid-back gathering without this happening. Some folks, for whatever reason apparently must archive every moment for future viewing even if there is eventually so much that it becomes meaningless.
The camera bandit is closely related to the mobile phone bandit who rudely interrupts interaction to answer their stupid phone. When you combine the camera and the phone into the camera-phone you get the ultimate demon.
Here is a video that somewhat illustrates the phenomenon.

Is this true or do I really just despise cameras?
