Well, the other day I had my camera on my desk at work (so as not to leave it in the car to die at 95degF). My boss came by and wondered why I had such a bulky camera when the cameras on phones were now so great. I gave him my stock answers about capabilities but he just looked at me and left.

So I bought the newest (just out) samsung galaxy III (for the phone, not the camera), but decided last night to try out the camera.

Now I know why I carry around a D90

  • most of the outside photos suffered from so much flare as to be useless
  • inside, not enough flash power for anything much
  • even the half decent ones would not blow up to 5x7 well unless no cropping was done
  • I found framing and "pressing" the button to be difficult and caused camera movement

No keepers from the whole evening (about 20 shots).

I figure it has its uses, but taking real photographs is not one of them (for me anyway).
