My first carry-everywhere camera was a Fujifilm SP-2000, a compact package that came in useful but was soon discarded as it was just too slow to get going, and had a few quirks in usage. Several other pocket cameras by Nikon and Sony followed, but again did not quite do the job.
Then came the Apple iPhones …
The Apple iPhone 3GS was launched in mid-2009 and revolutionised the concept of smartphone cameras forever.
Slim, multi-functional, and with amazing optics for the size, they’ve remained my carry-everywhere cameras.
What’s difficult to believe is that both of these are crops of the originals, shown full-frame below.
