Do you take your camera with you all the time still?

1 month 4 weeks ago #728132 by James L
I recently bought the new iPhone 13 and have to say, this camera is amazing.  Honestly I don't see the need to carry my DSLR with me as much for those casual shots.  I feel like I'm becoming a different photographer, and honestly don't know if that is good or bad.  Changing times.  The images this phone can take are un par with or close to what my camera can take.  Just saying.  

Anyone else following same path?

Pretty much. I only take my camera along on planned outings. But for the spur of the moment stuff its my mobile the saves the day.

But the quality isn't as great compared to a proper camera. Especially noticable during editing and when zooming in.

If you are good with my iPhone as being one of the cameras, then yes I always have one with me.

A discipline from my photojournalistic times, one MUST be ready for the
next assignment. Back from the previous job, collect the exposed films
and replace them, put the bag(s) back in order left out of view in the car.

Today, I replaced the film gear with digital ones but not the discipline.

I take a REAL camera with me frequently, but I always have my Cell Phone Camera with me. I heard a photographer's comment years ago that "Your Best Camera Is The One That You Have With You", and since cell phones with good cameras became available, I no longer always have one of my better cameras with me, unless I expect to be using it.

Rather than miss a good shot I may resort to my Cell Phone Camera in those times when the shot it there, but I don't have a better camera with me. "It's better than missing the shot" and a lot can be done in Post to make it better.

My phone can still not do what my camera can, specially in zoom mode.
Phone portrait mode also looks fake to me, so wide apertures is still best. 

So sometimes when I go on an unplanned stroll and get inspired by what I see, I start taking phone shots, but see possibilities that will only work with SLR.

Only camera that is with me all the time these days is my iPhone.  Dang, sounds like an echo here.  lol  Apple must be loving post like this.  But let's be real, these cameras are gold in these phones.  Now would they replace my main camera, oh god no.  But for the convenience side of things, they score big with me.

G'day James

Every time I get into my vehicle there are 2 cameras closeby, often 3. When I walk the area each morning, I have a small one with "only 4x zoom" in the pocket

With the phone - I don't even know how to use it as a camera !
