Only photographs a broad scene but does not document the scene you are looking at in that moment.
The camera does not record the actions before the meeting.
Much faster than a normal camera so the camera can miss important details.
The camera can be blocked by another body part.
Only records in 2-D so it is harder to judge distances.
