The BEST camera is....

The best camera is....

...the one you have with you.

I just got back from a week with my family at Disney World.  We had a great time, and for the most part, I left the picture taking to other people.  I watched a fair number of people carrying around their DSLRs, sometimes with grips, additional lenses, etc.  While I don't doubt they came away with some good photos, I cannot imagine lugging my Nikon around the park.

Instead, I kept my iPhone 5 in one pocket (also great for maps, texting, and the occasional phone call) and a Canon point-and-shoot in my other pocket.

Apple iPhone 5 and Canon PowerShot ELPH 300HS

That's it.

And you know what?  I didn't miss my DSLR.  I didn't miss capturing every detail in 36MP.  I didn't miss the backache from carrying around a complete kit 8-12 hours each day.

You know what else I didn't miss?  LOTS of important memories with my family.

I took my favorite shot from the trip with the iPhone's low resolution "selfie" cam.
