There is a saying in the photo world: “The best camera is the one that’s with you.”
I’m a firm believer in that. And thankfully, cell phone cameras, like the one in my iPhone4, have only gotten better and better. I rarely carry my big cameras to the loft with me, but when I see something worth taking a photo or video of while I’m out there, I can count on my cell phone to do the job for me most of the time.
People frequently ask me what kind of gear I use. I’ll admit, it does take a bit of specialized equipment to take photos like those capturing the birds in flight like these. Of course, motor drives and long lenses help with photos of the birds as they fly around the loft.
But when it comes down to it, I only have one favorite camera: The one I have on me at the time I need it.
Enjoy these examples of photos taken with my phone.
