Best alternative to leaving your DSLR home?

1 year 8 months ago #544174 by J Photo Man
How many of you still carry around a compact camera when you don't have your DSLR?  

If you don't use a compact camera, are you using your iPhone or other phone's camera? 

I was reading another thread here and this question just jumped in my head.  

Just curious sort of question to make some conversation.

I'm just a hobby guy, so I am switching to M4/3 mirrorless. Bye, bye DSLR.

There isn't, they are only temp cameras while you are away from your DSLR.  But my iPhone does a good job for what it is.  :)

Best alternative to leaving your DSLR at home?

Don't leave it at home!


If i'm out without the camera, and see something really worth shooting I'll either:

A. Go home and get the camera...

or

B. Not bother photographing it.

P&S camera's and phones are for small children...

:P
