I love taking pics. However I have never carried my dslr on my bike, I'm too scared. Plus, most of my photos are spur of the moment. It's easy to grab my phone quick and snap a pic because it's always handy and within reach. My slr, not so much. Edit: people are fooling themselves if they think their phone is on par with a good dslr. Phones are good and getting better, they just aren't that good. However, i don't think most folks can tell the difference because most folks now use thwir phone for everything. On a phone, yeah a phone photo looks just as good as a dslr. Not noticable until viewed on actual computer.
