      What are everyone’s views on CCTV? It’s hard to go far outside your house before you are visible to any of a myriad of CCTV cameras. Being naked isn’t a crime here in the UK, but how do you feel about being caught naked on camera when that camera isn’t yours?

      When nothing is happening, I find CCTV intrusive. When anything bad happens, I always want everything to be on camera. Face recognition bothers me – it’s too easy to build up a detailed picture of everything we do. On the other hand, if we have to be monitored, I prefer a camera to having lots of shady secret service agents hanging around in public buildings and on street corners. I don’t mind if someone sees me outside naked but I don’t want to offend anyone. I don’t want to be on a CCTV system naked though. Maybe I wonder what would happen to the photos, but in reality only a very tiny proportion of CCTV footage ever gets seen (as @barefootnudist says) and even less is ever stored for any length of time.

      There must be places where the CCTV coverage isn’t obvious (eg parks) and people try out naked activities like skinny dipping.

      Do you reckon there are places where CCTV operators are collecting huge archives of naked people on video?

      As @Barefootnudist and @ProfGreen say the CCTV is only a potential problem if police need to review them if a crime happens.

      I’m not at all bothered by CCTV in my normal daily life, mainly because there’s so much of it that there’s far too much for it all to be monitored.  Their main use is to capture a clear image when entering a shop at more of a distance to track movements (but the latter is usually poor quality and can’t identify you from scratch, it’s just used to follow you from one camera to the next).  The only real exception is high security locations that will be actively monitored, but if you want to go into somewhere like that when you shouldn’t then it’s your own fault.

        Most of it being unmonitored is an excellent point. Most is overwritten in a few days and only reviewed if something happens or the police request the footage (which is very rare for most properties). Unless you are outside a high-security location or inside a shop, there most probably isn’t anyone watching.
