Olympus E-420
The Olympus E-420 is the SLR that I use from time to time.

I’m not sure who said it first but the adage “the best camera in the world is the one you have with you at the time” is being proven thousands of times a day. The camera-phone is an amazing little device that has changed the way people look at the world (and meals, if Instagram is anything to go by). Most of the photos here will be stuff I snap on my iPhone 5 via either the standard built in camera or a couple of apps like Autostitch Pro and, of course, Instagram. I will occasionally use PhotoShop Express on the iPhone to clean up and crop images taken with the built in phone.

However, I do occasionally bring out my larger SLR camera and the difference is noticeable. Typically I’ll use this only for trips I know I’ll have some good shots or for meetings, sporting events, or other things I go to where I might want a bit more control over the image than I get with the good old iPhone.
