    I believe that the best camera in the world is the one you have with you. I'm sure I'm not the only person who has a small camera about their person when out and about. Let's see what pictures you got because the camera was to hand.

    I'll start with this BA-146 that was making numerous passes over Exeter Airport. I've no idea why but I had my Sony HX90 in my pocket and got it out just as the aircraft made its only pass nearby. This is uncropped at 123mm (equivalent to 720mm)...

    Do mobile phones count as pocket cameras?

    Don't see why not. I'm sure there's lots of members who have interesting stuff not made on dSLRs or CSCs.

    Great. Here's one from Skye (main camera was film, mobile was shooting 'b roll'):

    Quite amazing the DR of these things these days. Consumer compact cameras are surely hanging on to a hopeless cause nowadays. Nice composition by the way.

    Their sales are certainly declining but the travel zoom class are holding their own, probably because there's no phone with a 30X zoom --- yet!

    Not exactly for its artistic quality, but I was glad to have my phone on me when I spotted this... IMG_5716.jpg

    Has Sue the upholsterer from 'Fast n Loud' copied Richard Rawlings and branched out into the hospitality business?

    This is a good example of a shot that was made possible by having a camera in my pocket. This Jackdaw landed on the tree at the top of our garden steps and stayed just long enough to get one picture. It took the Sony HX90 at maximum zoom to grab it and needed a lot of post processing to make it useable but at least there's something to remind me of it...
