It is no secret to lots of folks that I worked for Nikon for 33 years and it is no secret that Nikon like so many companies today make pretty incredible imaging devices that capture the worlds greatest events. Lots of those events are in reality all about you and your life and the lives of those around you.
But there is an old saying that the best camera is the one you have with you. And that is very true. You can’t record the events of your life if your camera is sitting in a bag, on a shelf, in the trunk of your a car, But when it is possible to take a picture, create an incredible image as simply and easily as make a phone call, then there should never be a time that you are not ready to create your art.
It was not that many years ago that I felt just the opposite about all phone cameras, but the technology has advanced so rapidly and become so good that feature for feature with the exception of sensor size, phones are surpassing many conventional cameras.
I happen to be a fan of iPhones but there are many other very capable Android, etc. phones out there that are incredible image makers.
Over the years and especially as I am in my twilight years (sigh) I have moved more and more to be a gear minimalist. My mirrorless camera is simply a Fuji X100f. But when you want to be the ultimate minimalist then the phone camera for stills and video and combinations of those means of capturing images is my first choice. I never thought I would feel that way and then publicly admit it.
Therefore learning how to use your phone capabilities is a no brainer.
