Samsung Galaxy phone? Brent, Brent, Brent. Tsk tsk. And you with a full frame camera sitting idle.
Doug, the best camera? The one you have at the moment to take a picture. 🙂
Brent, strap the albatr—-I mean, DSLR around your neck at all times! I assure you I never leave the house without mine. Trust me. Really.
I hear ya, Doug. But … my thinking has changed somewhat. Several years ago, when I was running my commercial photography business, I saw (for the first time) a photo competition that exclusively was shot with an iPhone. “That’s ridiculous. How can a phone possibly capture a quality image.” Since then, I have watched other professional photographers shoot with phones, and even publish works with images captured with phones. And, if you’re publishing online, the phone is a good choice. These devices have gotten very good. I’m not suggesting that a Samsung Galaxy phone will produce an image equal to my professional gear, but it has a place. Let’s not forget the photographic skills of the photographer to properly expose and compose an image.
I may not always carry a camera with me when I leave the house, but I always have my phone. It’s my pocket camera. 🙂
