Didn't want to steal from JDGreens thread, but it did give me an idea.

Personally, since getting my 1st iPhone I've taken thousands of pics. Wife takes a bunch on her iPhone as well.

Most any projects gets at least a few shots, even more if I want to document for some reason. Unbelievable to do a slideshow and see something progress start to finish.
Love taking shots of something I have to disassemble to fix. Much better than my drawings, but I've also printed on paper and annotated.
Our granddaughter was here for the summer and we took over 900 shots and many short videos. Often we'd email a couple to her parents just so they could see what we were upto. Burned them all to a DVD and sent home with her.
Pic of items, prices, descriptions in stores.
Sent wife to HD with pic of a piece I needed, she showed it to clerk and brought it home.
Love getting that super sunrise, sunset, double rainbow, or an especially nice flower growing in the yard
Use the video function and send 15 sec live cards to people on special occasions.
Checking the dogs in a particularly interesting pose.
I take so many pics that when having a discussion with friends I often have a pic or two of what is being discussed.

OK, that's a start. What about you?

You didn't steal from my thread...I used my Blackberry phone camera for so many purposes I think that is what finally fried the motherboard. Pics of the cats, projects, while mowing, taking stuff apart, pics to post here and on Facebook, a pic of the can of cat food to jog my memory on the next shopping trip, I could think of a hundred different ways I used the camera on my phone....but videos...practically none as the resolution is so poor and we have really lousy wireless service which means I couldn't send any of them.

I pretty much use mine for the exact same reasons you mentioned. It is currently the only camera I actually use. After all the iPhone 4s has a 8 megapixel camera. :thumbsup: All the recent pictures that I've uploaded are straight from my phone.

The camera phone is mostly used to take photos of things that I would normally have to take notes about. Then I would loose the notes. :laughing::laughing::laughing:

I doubt I have taken a dozen photos with the camera phone that are of people, pets, etc. The images are really note taking.

Later,
Dan

I was cleaning a gasket surface on a car and could not see if I'd gotten it clean due to the location, so I stuck my phone down there and snapped a pix and I could see the spot I missed. I cleaned it a bit more snapped a 2nd pic to confirm it was clean.

Excellent. Usually takes me several tries, but really good at seeing behind something as long as I can get my hand in.
