The best camera is the one you have, but a cell phone, even this one; (https://www.motorola.com/us/products/moto-mods/hasselblad-true-zoom) which I own, just isn't as versatile as a DSLR or even a good point and shoot for that matter.That's what my cell phone is for! And making calls...
That's why when taking a DSLR I carry an old Sony a100. It's a nice platform but I can pick one up for around $100 on fleabay if I destroy mine. I'd probably never carry my a850 or good Zeiss lens.Last time i took my samsung wb350, i fell on it when i crashed. 300 usd gone.
I guess I should have prefaced by saying I used to ride with a DSLR. But unless I was going in with specific intent of making it a camera shoot ride, it was too cumbersome. Our crew is more intent on riding, were not that extreme, and not sponsored or anything to make it worth it. Switching to the AW1 allows minimal interruption, and I can even shoot from the hip or stop and quickly get off a shot. I miss the quality of DSLR, the AW1 is not the greatest, its quality not even as good as Micro 4/3 (which I use too) but its better than P&S. I would have not gotten this shot with a DSLR. By the time I'd have stopped, swung pack around, and pulled my DSLR out of pack, everyone would have been out of frame. And they would have all told me to GTH if I told them to turn around and ride back up the hill!"I really like to take my camera with me while in the mountain but i think is dangerous. Last time i took my samsung wb350, i fell on it when i crashed."
"I use a Nikon AW1. Unfortunately the system looks like it will be abandoned. It will likely break you before it breaks. "
all well and good, but these are digital point and shoot cameras, not DSLR's as in the title.
Im looking to get the new Canon Eos SL2 with this 24mm pancake lens. The combo is slightly bigger than most point and shoots. Currently using a Canon G7X II which has given me some good results.
I was thinking the same thing. Try blowing up your cell phone picture to 13x19. What about difficult shooting situation where you want total control of ISO, exposure & aperture? I recently added the Moto Mod camera https://www.motorola.com/us/products/moto-mods/hasselblad-true-zoom to my Droid and still find that my old Sony a100 does a better job. I view this cell phone camera as a good compromise. When I go to Sedona in a few months I'm still going to carry my a100 with one of these https://www.cottoncarrier.com/collections/all/products/ccs-g3-grey-strapshotIf you think an iPhone is a better option than a DSLR, then you probably don’t care about taking good quality pictures.
There’s nothing wrong with that, I’m just saying there’s really no comparison in quality or performance.
