i haven't touched my dslr in at least 5 years. the phone camera's plenty good for all but the pickiest of shots.

the one advantage to a dslr anymore is if you're walking around with it, everyone just assumes your a professional photographer. the last auto show i went to, i was asked a few times if i missed the press day or something while carrying it around...

Im with you here, My Phone can take nice quick picts but cannot take shitty pictures such as this one.





No one ever questions your shot with the phone.

You get PROfiled pretty quikly as a Pro when you have anything other than a phone.

I meet bouncers and security as soon as I enter Public concerts, dealing with drunk concert goers jumping in front to block my shots. Been harassed , interrogated and detained for 20 minutes by 6 city police one time during a midday Halloween event as some parent had pointed to a suspicious old guy taking pictures around kids. Cops could only pull adult costume shots from my camera and quizzed me why I was there? I had to leave the area with two cops shadowing me out of the event, quite the embarrassment and realization your rights don’t matter to Karen. Yet many around me were taking photos of the event with their Phones unmolested.

Taking a trip in a plane is always comical as they investigate the suspicious apparatus.

Also, Always wear a good size hat when taking BIG bird pictures!

My iphone does a surprisingly good job with what might be tricky exposures on the dslrs. The hdr get very close to what my eye saw for snap shooting.

To get this exposure with one of the beasts would have required playing with the raw file in post.



But, as @The Red One noted, it'd be tough to get a phone camera to do something like this.

I was considering going mirrorless but am so heavily invested in the flappy mirror gear that it would be cost prohibitive to make the change and have to carry 10 spare batteries to a remote location due to MILC quick drain.

I'm old school and still make prints at home with a lab quality printer. I haven't seen phone cameras that produce images that can be cropped and enlarged for wall hanging without making a mess, even shooting RAW with edits.

A newer generation phone is great for 90% of shots viewed on a computer though. I've done side-by-side comparisons between my phone cam and APS-C DSLR and have fooled most people trying to guess which exposure came from what when viewed on a monitor.

The marketing for new stuff is a strong motivator for parting with your cash.
If your present stuff is not blocking your creativity & artistic endeavours
and not dependent on your livelihood why change.

Ill let future events determine when I will change systems, either being Unfixable or due to theft.
I keep stalling the format change as when I consider what I would get for my dslr kit
investment vs get the same native mount lenses in Mirror less the price tag would be staggering

More importantly I still get wowed looking at the output im getting with my old stuff.

I make it a point to get out shooting at least once a week. Got to keep those hunting skill fresh.

Cameras now days transfer picts to Phones, When I show my pictures from the phone to people
I always like to add “look what my phone took today”. Just to play with them…


(early overcast morning 500mm 1/4000 F6.3 pre-focused on the sound bouncing from the tunnel at Mt Tremblant 2017)


I sometimes pull out the phone for to get pictures my other cameras im carrying are not set up for lens wise,
that always impresses the onlookers..

Key takeaway. So many enthusiasts like me get bogged down reading all the how-to articles that we miss the opportunities in front of us every day. Well, that and getting up at 3-4:00AM to get to location for golden hour.

Phenomenal photo of #34.

Given a phone doesn't have wings or a beak it would be next to impossible but I don't know what next year's models will bring.

What's interesting is that I mostly frame prints for family gifts and found that the younger generation is most appreciative. Of course I'm chuffed when I visit them and see one of my images on their wall. In my home you have no choice, the walls are shamelessly plastered with images from around the world.

I find it a little interesting there is still a (small?) demand for Instant Film Cameras like Fuji Instax.

Took some visiting friends on a hike to a few waterfalls in the Columbia Gorge today. Here's one, Falls Creek Falls, a 330' drop in three tiers.
