If I'm at work it's always with me (I am a photographer after all)
If I'm not at work, I always have my iPhone (which is a reasonable P+S) and frequently my X100 too.
The X100 is a cool camera to play with, and helps keep the fun in photography (which some days I really need)

Pretty much all the time even around the ship. Never know when something will go down. Gotta be ready for the big or small events involving my shipmates.

I take mine with me most of the time, even when just popping into time to do the shopping. Seems that every time I don't take it something interesting happens.

I pretty much have a camera with me most of the time. I used to make sure that this was my DSLR and several lenses but now it is more often just a good P&S to be able to shoot something that catches my eye. I used to always be looking for something to shoot but after shooting so much for work I am not always on the hunt for something anymore and if I do see something interesting the point and shoot will suffice.

There is nothing wrong with always having your camera with you but I suggest that you touch base with your insurance company to make sure that you have the best coverage for all situations when you have it away from home. Now that I have a grand daughter my DSLR is starting to travel with me more now in case I end up stopping at my son's place. Yesterday I drove about 250 miles for personal reasons and I did have two DSLR's with me and a couple extra lenses. Didn't shoot a thing though there were probably some landscape stuff I could have done.


My life is like one big RAW file....way too much post processing needed.

I don't carry mine unless I'm planning to take pictures at a gathering, with my kids, niece and nephew, or on a family trip.

This inspires me to ask folks to share some of the spontaneous shots you have gotten when just out running errands. Convince the rest of us to start carrying our cameras with us!

I leave my DSLR at home unless there's an event or gathering I have to go to.
I bring my M6 on my bag all the time

I always tend to have something I can take photo's on. Whether that is the smartphone (Galaxy S2 has a decent camera), the P&S or the DSLR depends on circumstance.

The DSLR gets taken when I go out for photography walks etc with the prime purpose of taking photos.

The G12/ P&S gets taken when I am going out and there is a chance of some thing happening but CBA taking the backpack with everything.

The Galaxy S2 is good for the other times when snapshots are ok.

Personally, I carry mine more out of habit of going everywhere with a mid to heavy weight pack. Decades of lugging around textbooks has left me feeling weird if I'm not carrying something with a bit of heft to it on a daily basis, and I keep getting panic feelings of having forgotten something.

And I'm sure from a physical fitness standpoint the extra few pounds to carry doesn't hurt either, especially with a few flights of stairs thrown in.

I am wondering how often you guys have your camera with you?

My primary camera which is a 1D MKII may not be with me all the time but it is always no more than a few seconds away from me locked up in my car or van, the same for my JVC GY-HD200 camcorder, lately though I have gotten into a habit of carrying a Canon P&S I was given last year which just happens to fit very nicely into a Blackberry carrying case.

While it is no where near as flexible as the 1D it has the advantage of being so small it’s easy to carry inconspicuously and being in a phone case no one thinks it is a camera/camcorder as such I keep it with me all of the time.

My camera lives in the trunk of my car and my car is always close by. I have learned that if I see something on the side of the road to pull off and take the photo right then and there because if I don't and plan to come back, I either never do, or the conditions are different and the shot is no longer there.

I even wrote a blog post about this a year ago today.

Nice post. I like the shot featured and the close up of the broken keys. Also some of the bridge pictures, which I presume were also taken while out and about. I have often seen things that I thought about stopping to shoot also. There is 1 particular barn I pass every day. I keep thinking, one day they are going to knock it down and I hope I have stopped to shoot it before they do! I may have to start taking mine to work, though I'll feel a bit goofy carrying it to my desk every day because I won't leave it in the hot car.

All the time, a camera phone is always on my belt. Oh, you mean our real cameras, for me about half the time. It's too hot here I live to leave a camera (or pets) in the car, so trips to the store no camera but going to someone's house, the park or any kind of event I take the camera and sometime even take a picture or two.

I don't go anywhere without a camera, although most of the time I don't use it unless I really want a shot. Sometimes I'll take a shot or two and just delete them later in camera.

Occasionally, however, I find something to shoot that makes me think, "Glad I brought the camera."


Thank you. bw!
