It's starting to amaze me seeing people on vacations and places they may never get to again, taking all thier shots with cellphone cameras. I went on a whale watching boat tour this year, my second one actually because the first provided no sightings. I'm local and can go on one of these tours anytime. Of course I still have to drive a half hour, buy a ticket, take the time etc. There are only so many places in the world where you can see humpback whales up close like this. The boat was clearly full of tourists who have come from around the world to see this amazing spectacle. In addition to the whales there are dolphins, puffins, other sea birds, amazing shorelines etc. So, what are most people using to record these often once in a lifetime trips? Smartphone cameras! You travelled all the way to Newfoundland, Canada, were lucky enough to get some whale sightings and this is how you are recording your memories! A trip like that, with what it costs deserves something better than a smartphone camera IMO.
