big topic, depends where you are, lots of conjecture, etc.

I've seen youtube vids where savvy types make sure they've got a camera running and then assert their rights pretty firmly. In one case, the cops got pissed at this guy for sass, insisted he get out of the car and subjected to search, find the camera and then have a casual chat with each other on camera about how they can't fuck with him as hard now because camera. So there's this whole chess game you can get in to but ... begs the question: should you?

Unless you're super knowledgeable of local laws or rich and lawyered up or both, probably not!
Worth pointing out that a different set of slightly nastier cops would have just made the camera disappear.
