    The problem for me with phone cameras is the simply don't have the photographic range I like. They're great for the casual user taking snapshots but you can't do a true telephoto or a true macro shot. With a digital or a pre-digital (35mm) there's a huge range of control a phone camera can only ever dream of having.

    The best camera I ever had was a lttlle 6mp Kodak EasyShare.

    I carried that thing around in my pocket all summer long for almost ten years when my son was playing baseball.

    I dropped that thing in the ocean on accident, though, down in Myrtle Beach. I tried a 16mp camera after that but they were always blurry for some reason. The video was okay, but the pictures blew.

    This is generally the best quality I have of photos, this was on the 6mp Kodak at Cooperstown Dreams Park. Push the button once to autozoom then push it again to snap. Man, I got so many good pictures of the ball coming off the bat. The timing was perfect on the snap all the time. It held the zoom for like 5 seconds, so you had time to wait to snap the picture, but the picture snapped as soon as you hit the button. No delay at all.

    I am waiting on an early birthday present, not high end by any stretch of the imagination and manual focus to boot but is quite useful for some photography.
    It's a 500mm that also comes with a 2X teleconverter making it 1000mm.

    The highest zoom I currently have is a 300mm Nikon, very stable with vibration reduction technology so easy to get clear shots. The big one on the other hand is rather touchy so definitely requires a tripod for stabilization.

    Different zoom levels;

    Arriving this week, had a modest influx of money and found a deal too sweet to pass up.
    Nikon D7100 (used) in excellent condition at half the price they go for in that condition.

    Once it arrives I'll put my D40x up for sale with the 18mm -55mm lens and maybe even the 55mm - 200mm lens. That should off set what I paid for the D7100.
