As Luckless quite correctly says, it's about capturing a memory, not making a piece of art



All the stuff I've owned at one time or another

LOL, I could use all my gear at my kid's parties and those they go to, I mostly use either a p&s or my phone or both. Why? it's always in my pocket, I'm not gonna wade through 20 kids with sticky fingers with my big cameras dangling off my side. I just capture a couple memories, playtime, bouncy house (video), blowing out candles and opening presents, etc. Perfectly happy with the nice photos the limited gear gives me and I capture the kids in action instead of all of them staring at my 'big' camera.

works for years for me :-)

Now, a real event like graduation etc I shoot with the 'real' camera, I just don't consider a b'day party all that special and prefer to enjoy myself mingling. And I have to deal with food and drink, spills, sticky things. scrapes, etc. Easy with gear in pocket.


40D, 5D3, a bunch of lenses and other things :cool:

My mom used a Kodak Disk camera. It was painful.

The camera you have on you is the best camera to use. Have your phone on you all the time vs. The P&S OR DSLR CAMERA in its case in the car or at home won't do you any good.

I agree. I find the parents with more than two children are using phones probably because they are dead tired, lol.

I have three boys - 4,6 & 8... still use the 1D3 though!


some fairly old canon camera stuff, canon lenses, Manfrotto "thingy", 1D MK II converted for IR, and now an M5

Oh wait, no it wasn't. Pics were made, memories were preserved for the next generation, life went on.

My first camera was a Kodak Disc 4000. I loved that thing - but I was 12; what did I know?

My first camera (which was discarded a long time ago unfortunately) was a Kodak Brownie Holiday Flash (external link). It used 127 roll film. I recall pulling the first roll out and stretching it out to see the images I had just made. My parents still had the roll processed so I could see the results - all solid black negatives, of course. That was a lesson that was never forgotten. I think I was 7 or possibly 8 years old at the time.

Q? "What do they do with photos?" Reminds me --

I was team photo guy for college baseball for ten years -- shot team photos, yearbook, action etc -- we had a lot of MLB players come back for reunions, fundraisers, etc. So, sometimes the "alumni' or the BOD would grab me (as if I were their individual pawn) and ask me to shoot them with this "famous athlete" ... (well, yes, a for real famous athlete). Anyway, so, I'd shoot a couple shaking hands or arms on shoulder, big smiles ... yadda yadda yadda

At least 50-60% of the time, that BOD person never came back ... forgot, didn't care, wanted only the importance of the moment, standing with a celebrity athlete. Some did, and wanted an 8x10 print made, no offer of pay -- BOD too important for that kind of trivia, like costs.

After while, it got to be a hassle -- shooting, processing, print / or CD, whatever. So, then I got a brainstorm ... each time one of the 'freebies pawn-users" asked, I handed him/her a card, and on it said "Promo-shot w/ team alumni - $15 each - funds donated to the team for field support and gear replacement" ... Suddenly, the BOD and others 'grab & grins" stopped asking .... great idea, that fundraising.

My oldest daughter is 4 years old and she gets invited to many birthday parties throughout the year. So far I have not seen one person use a regular camera, even the parents are shooting with cell phones. Has anyone else noticed this?

it's not sad, just today's reality. the easiest photo is from the camera you always carry everywhere

My first not disposable camera was a Kodak 110 Tele-instamatic like the poster above. I still have many of the photos I took with it in an album. It went everywhere with me and I used up a lot of 110 film with it. The photos do their job, they were memories not art. They are all printed 3x5 and look just fine. I feel much the same way about my iphone camera.


Photography is just a hobby for me.

I'm not sure why this is sad or, as many have pointed out, it's any different from someone using a Kodak 110 a million years ago.

Personally I find it sad that you and others think it is sad.
