What's up, Doc?

I've been toying with the camera on my new BlackBerry (yes, I'm old school) and while it'll never be a DSLR, it's surprisingly decent when the right set of factors - read, the stars - align.

It reminds me of the old saying that goes something like this: the best camera is the one you remember to take with you. And since my Berry is never more than arm's length away from me, I'm guessing it's the best tool for the job when I notice the carrot display and decide it's something I want to remember.

Because when all is said and done, this photography thing is more about preserving moments and memories than it is about what equipment you use.

Your turn: Do you use your camera's phone?

One more thing: We're still doing the vegetable thing, and you're welcome to submit your veggie-themed photos through tomorrow (Monday) night. Just pop over here if you've got something to share.

I do use the camera on my iPhone quite often. As you said, it's more about the moment than the gear at times.

I use my camera phone frequently. In fact, it gets a good workout on a very regular basis. I use the tags below the post to distinguish between my Android photos and the ones I take with my DSLR. Honestly, if I didn't label them- many folks wouldn't know the difference. I guess all the years of using a very basic P&S translated to a lot of patience with the device in order to get the desired photo.
