Having GPS allows government snooping If you have GPS, NSA will always know where you and your camera are located I know, I know privacy is a thing from the past and will never be seen again
Um, how is that? I'm very privacy aware, but it's just a *passive* gps *receiver* and you don't need to export the gps tags from your postprocessing software when uploading to the net. The real gouvernment spy device is in your mobile phone because it's easy to triangulate your position using cell phone masts or your login data from public wifi.
Not that I worry about govt snooping on my GPS but that reminds me of a question - how hard would the Canon wifi systems be to hack? Could some malicious hacker format your card?
The way the wifi firmware works, it looks like Canon bought a software part from a 3rd party and glued it to their firmware. Unless there are dedicated backdoors, I'd say it's as safe as it gets if you don't chose "passw0rd" as your password, the wifi uses that latest encryption and authentication standard.
Btw here are the most popular iCloud passwords from the recent hack - is your's included :-p? ... https://raw.githubusercontent.com/hackappcom/ibrute/master/passlist.txt
