    Device with a camera in it? Yep, mine has two cameras in the same unit along with a TV, video player, radio, HiFi, calculator, note book, clock, bedside alarm clock, stopwatch, timer, weather station, unit converter, compass, map, GPS, calendar, fileofax, games console, Internet portal, e-mailer, text-messager, answering machine and telephone. They call it a mobile phone, but it's a bit more and a bit less hand that all at the same time.

    Standard camera? Used to, but not allowed in my place of work so have got out of the habit of picking one up when I go out. Strangely, they do allow mobile phones though...

    Most but not quite all of the time. Compact is with me on a daily basis but doesn't always get transferred to my other clothes if I'm just going down the pub or round to a freind. Tends not to get taken when I've got the big stuff with me either.

    Similar, but I don't bother with a compact any more, the EOS M does a fine job there.

    Sony Rx100m3 and a spare battery. My phone does not have a camera.
    If I am carrying a DSLR or two then the chances are that the little Sony is still in a pocket.

    Used to. Now less often. Couldn't answer anyway: my M9 cannot really be described as a compact, a CSC or a DSLR.

    I sometimes wonder about buying a combination tea-trolley and camera, or a walking stick or belt buckle with a camera built in, but have come to the conclusion that it would probably be about as useful as a combination camera and phone.

    The little Vito II slips easily in my trouser pocket and is more fun than bothering with a telephone. In fact, the 'phone is usually sitting at home...

    Chrissie, I can't answer because in the usual fashion, you've missed out an important option. Please will you improve the writing of these Poll questions. Thanks, Oly

    Not always (unless an unused phone counts) but if I am going anywhere the least bit photogenic I will. If I was not following that advice I would have missed one of my best images

    That's certainly one opinion. There are many others.

    Of course there are. Best to let those who know it all, get on with it. The rest of us can enjoy taking pictures with whatever comes to hand...

    Usually I have my Sony Xperia Z2 and Galaxy S3 with its fisheye attachment, my take everywhere on the belt loop Casio Exilim EX-850Z and my emergency DSLR I keep at work.

    Today I also have an SJ4000 action cam and Fujifilm HS50 in case of murmurations on the way home.


    This however makes the answering of the poll question difficult as two/three options apply - so I'll go with compact camera.

    Is that a strange way to refer to a Q ?:)

    I rather dislike combination tools that sort of do a lot of things rather poorly.

    I prefer tools that are excellent at one thing. That applies to wood working tools, cameras and kitchen knives.

    I do not even have a smart phone.

    Hi I_T,

    My main DSLR is my K-50 w/ DA 50-135/2.8 and "the compact camera", for my wide angle shooting, is my Ricoh GR_IV :) I now bring the Q7 along with my FA50/1.7 and K to Adapter for (sporting/concerts) events where they won't allow my K-50 and lens :)
