I think this calls for a social experiment. Walk down the street with a camcorder (very obvious that you are recording) and see how people react. Walk down the same street, same time of day with a smartphone but act like you are using it for navigation (obfuscating the recording but the smartphone is up at a level that could be recording). See how people react in both cases.

As a person who has done a lot of video work in public locations, it is rare to have someone jump out of the line of sight of the camera. I've never had anyone try to hide when I use a smartphone.

Of course, I could also build a little hidey pocket to record people with the smartphone without them knowing at all. I guess that would be even MORE of an invasion of privacy, right?
