How many of you USE your phones camera?

9 years 10 months ago #44913 by Dave Burburry
This thread is piggy back off my last thread about not having a camera with you when you need it. I have older iPhone that does have camera on it, but I never use it.

I would like to see how many here have a camera in their phone and who uses it vs those like me that don't use it.

My reasoning for not using it, is that I always thought the camera in the phone was more of a novelty than quality picture taking device.

The floor is open for discussion :lol:

I personally have never used my phone camera ever, I have rarely seen good photos taken on them, and 99 times out of a hundred I will have a camera slung over my shoulder, and when I dont, I dont care or worry if that perfect photo opportunity turns up, its not worth worrying about. :toocrazy: :toocrazy: :toocrazy:

I used mine once to take a picture of my kid's toy to amuse her with. LOL It's now the wallpaper on that phone because it's the only picture on it. I use my phone for talking... that's basically it, and even that isn't often.

I've never even tried it. I use a phone for talking and camera for taking pictures.

I don't like phone pictures... all of them are out of focus and don't look good... They might be useful if you are just goofing around with friends or your kid does something funny and you don't have your good camera with you.... Phones are for talking.

I'm happy to hear at least I'm not alone on this one. I have seen blogs dedicated to people who use their phones for taking photos. I guess when I have a camera I usually carry with me, that keeps the phone a phone, and the camera a camera. :patriot:

On the plus side for phone cameras. I was shooting the light parade at Disney last Christmas. This girl next to me was getting some fabulous shots with her little iphone. I was pretty amazed at the job it was doing in what can only be described as challenging light conditions.

I use my phone camera only to snap a shot for the contacts list.

LOL I think I have used mine twice, I don't like the process of taking a photo and getting it to my computer.

I only use mine when I'm at theme park or some place I don't want to bring my camera. But then again I would have my point and shoot camera with me. Now that you have me thinking I don't use it much :whistle:

I'm surprised by the response. I agree with whoever it was that released the book of iPhone photos or maybe it was some other guy that said the best camera is the one you have with you or something. My phone camera is on my person at all times and the resolution is almost the same as my D40. Sure it's awful in low light, and I would never use it professionally, but I go to it often to photograph my daughter, and all sorts of random things.

Taken with a camera phone, not bad I don't think for being a camera in a phone.

I'll use mine, but only during candid shots with friends or out at the bars.

I probably use my cell phone camera, as much as I use my actually camera. :rofl:

I have used mine 4 or 5 times, usually when I wanted a record of something, rather than a photo.
