iPhone vs SLR

As the old saying goes, the best camera is the one you have on you. The camera I have on me is my iPhone. I take a lot of photos with it, despite having an SLR that’s obviously higher quality. But it’s so much easier to do things with iPhone photos! Emailing / Twitter / Google Photos. Quick and easy. Not to mention the weight. And smartphone cameras are pretty great these days, aren’t they?

Hmm. Last night I was at the Blackpool Tower for their New Year’s Eve bash. Here’s a shot I took on my phone, and put on Facebook:

And here’s one from my SLR:


The SLR is a good 2kg, including its wide-angle lens. But still. Gotta have it on me more.
