Do you take more photos with your phone or a dedicated camera?

Look! A bear! Right over there! Can you believe it? What will you grab to take a picture of it? Your phone or your camera?

Do you tend to take more photos with your phone or a dedicated camera? Do you always have a camera glued to your hip, or do you rarely take photos? Curious minds are, well, curious…

And if you’re interested in taking better photos, just know it’s all about the lighting. Read Nanci Dixon’s article about lighting here.

I have a really nice DSLR camera and a great phone camera. However I mostly use my circa 1964 Pentax Spotmatic film camera. Instead of hundreds of so-so random pics that I never look at I’m limited to 36 pics on a roll. It makes me a much better photographer and I find myself really enjoying and studying the scenery rather than constantly snapping photos. It works for me.

When I replaced my old phone last fall, I bought a Pixel 6 Pro for it’s cameras and photo software. It takes great pictures for a cell phone camera and I use it often since it’s always with me. And it’s truly superior for low light photos and video. However, my 2016 Samsung NX500 mirrorless camera still takes far better scenery pictures, so I use it most of the time when traveling. I also carry a (small) Sony 30x super zoom camera in the NX500’s camera bag for times that I want to really zoom-in for a photo.

Daily use is my phone. If going on a scheduled trip, we take cameras as well.

I always use a smart phone. When I’m not using my phone, I am using someone else phone😁

I actually own a really advance Canon DSLR. State of the art (about 7 years ago).

It was a vendor sample and it has never left my home office in over 5 years and has never been used to take a personal photo.

Open to offers?

I’ve sent Tim an email with your email address, Rosalie. Since I didn’t hear back from Tim, I didn’t want to give out his email address without his permission. Hopefully he’ll email you about his camera. Have a good night. 😀 –Diane

I used to use a 35mm film camera 40+ years ago before going to a digital 35mm SLR. Now I use my cell phone. Camera is too bulky to carry around my neck.

The last camera we bought was more than 20 years ago. It has an 8 megabyte card and makes pictures far inferior to those our phones make.

Phone for snapshots. Real DSLR for photos that I really care about.
Cell phone is great for photos of things that need repair, especially on the RV. I can always return it to how it should be. Fewer missing screws.

Same way here. Phone is for spur of the moment photos. DSLR is carried when sightseeing.

I am a plumber and when trying to identify a plumbing part for a supplier will use my cell phone. Other than that I don’t take pictures.

It really depends on what I am trying to capture and the distance I am from the object.
