Admittedly, I have been using my Samsung Smartphone for taking more photos lately. Part of the reason is convenience (I always have my phone with me" and the other part is the ease of sharing photos and auto-back up.
The camera on my phone is 8 MP but the "zoom" is horrible. So unless I am close to my subject, the Smartphone camera is not a great option.
But for those situations where I am close to the subject it really works pretty darn well....But...
The supermoon is this weekend!
On Sunday, June 23, at 7 a.m. EDT (1100 GMT), the moon will arrive at perigee — the point in its orbit bringing it closest to Earth), a distance of 221,824 miles (356,991 kilometers).
This should make for some great photography...Will you be taking photos?
Lets face it...just about everyone today uses a smartphone and the cameras on them are getting more and more impressive.
I recently purchased the Samsung Galaxy S2 and it has an 8MP camera plus HD video! It is so convenient when out and about without the need to carry a separate camera and the photos it takes are quite impressive! (will be posting photos in an upcoming blog post).
So, this leads to the question...Are Smartphone cameras as good as stand alone point and shoot cameras?
What do you think?

Our Golden Retriever, Ace can be such a character! He turned 4 in August.
It used to be that if he heard or saw someone going into the kitchen he would jump up and be at their feet waiting for them to drop that tasty morsel of food.
Now, he just casually lifts his head, checks out the situation and decides if it's worth the energy to investigate further :)
I've posted a new album to the Canon SX150 page. The first album is of butterflies from an exhibit at our local zoo.
Very impressed with this little camera!
Fall is a beautiful season...the colors are spectacular! Bring these color together with water and you can get some amazing photos!
I love how these came out...Especially the two with the fisherman :)
Camera was the Canon SX40.
