    I use my cell phone more often because of convenience. I don’t always have my camera on me. Also, if it’s a quick picture of something I’ll use my phone because I can quickly send it to my computer. However, for events where I know I want pictures I do bring my camera along. I think it will probably depend on how good your camera on your phone is.

    I only use my phone to take pictures of dresses, but that’s largely because we’re not technically allowed to take them over here, so it’s sneakier!

    Cell phone… quicker and more convenient. I’m no professional photographer I just wanna document the occasional moment.

    I use my phone usually because of how convenient it is, and it’s always with me and charged. I take my camera for vacations or big events.

    I only went dress shopping once, and that time I used my phone. I wouldn’t lug around my SLR for dress shopping – particularly since most salons don’t allow photos, and it’s much easier to sneak one on my iPhone!

    Typically, I use my phone. If I want nice pictures that I can edit, then I bust out my DSLR.

    @isabelle_86:  Depends. If it is a quick picture that I want this instant (such as of my puppy), I will just use my cell. However, generally speaking I hate cell phone quality pictures compared to my digital SLR camera. We are a photography friendly family and we love pictures – especially good quality ones.

    So, in a pinch I will use a cell phone. Generally speaking, I don’t (especially for important moments).

    I rarely take pictures with my phone. Only if I’ve forgotton to take my camera with me (which I rarely leave it at home.)

    Cell phone. I never even thought of bringing a real camera dress shopping with me.

    @isabelle_86:  I have a Nikon that my parents gave me for Christmas a few years ago, and I feel kind of bad because honestly I rarely use it! I’m pretty much always using my phone for pictures nowadays because it’s so convenient and the camera is pretty good. Plus I can edit pictures right on the phone. Pretty much all my pictures that I’ve uploaded to facebook or emailed to friends have been taken from my phone.

    depends on your phone. i had the blackberry curve until december 2012, and it took HORRID pictures. now i have the iphone 5 and a photo editing app and it takes photos almost as good as my digital camera!

    the only time i use my digital camera is when i think i might need to blow the photos up (i.e. when we’re on vacation, etc.)
