Public Service Announcement

Sometimes a warning shouldn't have to be given.

Look, Internet, we really shouldn't have to say stuff like this, but here goes: if you're going to use this PENTAX 16MP Optio camera with 18X Optical Zoom for any sort of illicit behavior like, say, taking naked photos of yourself or maybe photographing yourself crapping in the ground beef at your job at Taco Bell or something, please don't. First of all, maybe don't do stuff like that in the first place. Especially the Taco Bell one. We eat there sometimes.

But if you're going to insist on doing dumb stuff and documenting it to share online, you should know this: this camera, unlike pretty much all digital cameras, does not save data in each photo that can be used to find out where you took it. So when you post that "hilarious" photo of you punching that koala in the zoo when no one was looking, just know that some particularly motivated Internet vigilantes (and there is no shortage of such types) feeling indignant at your display can quickly find out which zoo you were at, then deduce your address, home phone number, favorite pizza topping, and preferred sexual position.

Unless you're using this camera, you filthy koala puncher.

Top Comments are discussion forum posts we have deemed worthy of your time. Listen, we get a lot of comments, and most of the time, it's pretty forgettable stuff; but sometimes you rise to the top like butterfat in milk. We don't recommend you base your self-worth on how often we feature your comments, but we don't expressly forbid it either.
