You can buy the most expensive camera equipment in the world but it won't capture that perfect sunset if it's sitting at home. As a fellow photographer said, the best camera is the one you have with you. The camera I never leave home without isn't really a camera at all, it is my iPhone.
Like many, I use my camera phone for snap shots of the kids or to post a funny photo on Twitter. Until recently, that is all I thought my phone was capable of capturing -- blurry snapshots. The iPhone can be used for much more than that and many use the popular phone to make art. Maybe I was overlooking a great piece of technology and the newest addition to my camera bag.
