I would agree with Cary. An Opt-Out policy would be more workable for presenters. As you all know, I have been taking many photos over the years at this conference (see the 6 albums from 2008 to 2013 at https://www.flickr.com/photos/schwartzray/collections/72157604027074852/https://www.flickr.com/photos/schwartzray/collections/72157604027074852/). Though I still take candid photos, (BTW Andromeda has ask to use this one for her keynote https://www.flickr.com/photos/schwartzray/4393750460/in/set-72157623395853351https://www.flickr.com/photos/schwartzray/4393750460/in/set-72157623395853351), generally these days I take candids of people I am somewhat 'acquainted' with. Only on two occasions I do recall that the person photographed later asked to delete/or not take the pic-which of course I did.
For photographers, color coded lanyards would be easier to spot. And if any were accidentally caught in a frame, it could be deleted or the portion blacked out.

I think that requiring explicit permission from presenters is overly burdensome for the crew that is struggling to get the recordings up. I think that speakers and presenters should be informed that all presentations may be recorded and made available to the public unless they inform the conference committee that they do not want to be recorded before their presentation begins.
If they object, the video crew will refrain from capturing their presentation.
If we do screen capture again, it is possible that presenter could have the option of allowing us to record their voice and screen.
