    Like anyone we have a drawer filled with cameras.
    I just bought another full featured point and shoot pocket camera (another sickness of mine.)

    After getting a new phone here recently I find myself wanting take more pics now that I have it.
    It's a learning experience for sure.

    So is your phone becoming or is it your main tool for photography?

    My only device for photography. My only device for GPS navigation (I don't bother using the system that comes with my car). My only device for playing music and listening to audio books.

    No budget, either financially or timewise for a good camera. We have our digital cameras that we have bought over the years. Started with a Fuji p&s in the early 2000's, then the Canon S2 IS. That worked well until we had our first kid, it wasn't too hot indoors and my old Droid and then Trophy were awful.

    We picked up a Canon Elph a couple years ago and it works really nicely. But once I got my Lumia 928, it was pretty much game over. Does everything I need and adds being able to do nearly all corrections (crops, redeye, rotating, color/brightness/WB) and then send the shots out.

    Plus the Elph is hot pink, so um, yeah, my wife can use it ;)

    Honestly at the moment it definitely is. I would really like to get a proper DSLR some day, though but in the mean time the camera's on the Lumia's are just as good as any point and shoot (especially the 1020's). At least for my needs.

    I mainly use my phone for pictures. If I have a dedicated video cam I'll generally use that for videos over my phone though.

    I only use my phone for pictures, I find the camera complicated and I prefer the quick advanced settings on my Lumia.

    I mainly shoot my pictures with a Canon 600D (think it's called the t3i Rebel in the US), but I need to work on my post-processing skill. However, a DSLR is not something you can put in your pocket. So when with friends, or when crossing something interesting, I quickly take out my Lumia to take a snapchat of the scene. For more professional work (or special occassions) I will pull out my DSLR.

    My phone is my everyday camera. It's with me 98% of the time, I can upload photos as I take them and many other useful features.

    I always have my phone with me. Last Christmas I couldnt find my Nikon battery so I just used my phones for shooting the family time on Christmas Day. For Mother's Day my phone (Lumia 928) was the only camera used for taking photos. I sent out a link to the photos later.

    Yup, my 1520 it's my goto for taking pictures. Haven't needed/wanted a standalone camera for a couple of years now.
