We went on a cruise last year and took all photos with my Samsung phone. The only things I miss is a viewfinder (hard to see in sunlight) and an optical zoom.

I do have a Nikon, not a DSLR as I find them too awkward and bulky, which has a 60x optical zoom. While it's brilliant for wildlife closeups, I don't often take it with me when out and about. Mind you, that's just me as I hate carrying stuff... I don't know how the missus can carry that bloody huge handbag around all day. 😲
Thats not just a handbag; it is a powerful weapon.
Don't stand near it when it is moving. :lol:

OK, digressing from cameras to handbags for a few more moments..............

The bosses daughter at work has a handbag...........
I once carried it to her car when we were both leaving at the same time........
I asked how many bricks she had in it.........
she laughed......
next day we weighed her handbag.........as you do.........
She coulda had 4 house bricks in it.............
That bag weighed just under 13kg..........

:o ..I KID YOU NOT.. :shock:

But just to get back on topic, if I'd had my Samsung then I coulda taken a pic of the scales.............

Yes...mobile phone cameras have come along way in the past couple of years.
Who cares what sort of trickery goes on to produce a clear image...I don’t 👍

I am a Nikon fan, and have 2 Nikkormat SLR's 2 Nikon digital cameras plus my Samsung phone, but my favourite is my Nikon D70 DSLR. I haven't used the old Nikkormats since I went digital in 2002, but I think each has their place.
The digital non SLR's are compact and good for point n shoot, but I do get annoyed with the delay between when you push the button and the shutter moves. The phone is just there all the time, but seeing the screen in sunlight is a pain.
The D70 is great if you are prepared to accept the bulk, and versatile with interchangeable lenses but the best feature I find is that when you push the button there is NO DELAY.

I have just bought a Nikon P9000 (like Rredbeak's) only had it for a week so haven't used it much but the zoom is awesom & I particularly like the GPS location data collected at the time of the photo so you can work out where the photo was taken

If you want quality images use quality gear. Photography is & has been our main interest for decades.

We supply images for magazines, books, lectures, travel/wildlife websites, both in Australia & overseas.

What's so bulky about a DLSR camera? :lol: :lol:

DSLR cameras are best but in recent years mirrorless technology has equaled or even surpassed it.

Phones & compact cameras are quite adequate for happy snappers. Enjoy.
Our land abounds in Nature's gifts, of beauty rich & rare.

I'm afraid technology left me well behind many years ago when it comes to photography. The wife has a Canon something and she manages to snap some decent pics and a few days back she asked me to transfer images from the camera to the laptop - "sure, I said, you just tell me what bits I need to unbolt and exactly where I need to fasten them to the laptop" - :confused:

I have mastered the art of wrangling my way out of doing something by offering a stupid comment accompanied with a look of complete dumbness - of course I know how to transfer images, I get the kid from next door to come and do it. :lol:
