Make sure you don't take it to the pub then leave it on the table while you
go to the toilet and your mate gets a couple more beers in only to spill one
of them and get beer into the on/off/shutter release mechanism causing it to
get all stickied up and no doubt requiring a trip to the repair shop to be
de-stickied up.
