I don't know how everyone else feels about the subject but mobile phone photography is undoubtedly becoming more and more popular. Not necessarily as a way of income but just for fun, and I'm looking to find those who are interested in mobile photography. Message me, or reply if you'd like to chat, I'd like to meet fellow enthusiasts.  :)

I'm sure you'd get more response from places like Flickr or that site I've seen mentioned beginning with an I,  ...
... yup, there are several groups on Flickr.

I'm getting into it too.  The big thing you learn is - if you always have a P&S camera in your pocket, and you try to develop the habit of looking around you, you'll find interesting pictures.  But I often end up regretting I don't have my DSLR with me.

Unfortunately the camera in my smartphone (HTC HD7) is absolute cr@p and not even in the same galaxy as the iPhone camera, so none of the photos are good for anything other than posting on FB for my friends.   Once in a great while I  follow up later with the DSLR.

Yeah, I know what you mean about not having your DSLR when you see a great shot.

Funnily enough, one of the Flickr groups is called 'What my phone can do that your dSLR can't' which I thought was a very interesting idea, but most of the recent uploads anyway seem to be just 'photos taken on phonecams'. Presumably the earlier uploads are more 'on topic'.

'What my phone can do that your dSLR can't'.

Besides fit in a shirt pocket? Nothing. And if I see one more off-center cell phone photo gimmicked to look like an old Polaroid, I'm gonna gag.

I love instagram, I use it on my Samsung every day. For the purpose the camera is more than good enough. IQ is not important at all and if you complain about it, you've completely missed the point.

The best camera is the one that's with you anyway ;)

Take photos in certain concerts, and some other places where they don't seem to bother if you shoot with a camera but you'd soon find yourself outside if you pulled out your dSLR - soem they don't even let you in if you're carrying one (the FedEx Forum in Memphis springs to mind).

There's also times when the size of the lens optics on a smaller camera allow you to get a shot that you wouldn't with a big DSLR such as when shooting through fences, gates etc. or when you can hold the phone flush up against glass etc. and avoid reflections that way.

I do always have a P&S in my pocket. Roughly since 2005.  :D

Bought the G12 in Dec. (I think it was that) Sold it in April. Even for a P&S / Bridge camera, it was too much. Back to a real P&S again, A1200 now.
