Bad bet. My camera is down.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

Best camera is the one you have on you. Most cell phones these days take surprising great pictures.

When you are dead, you don't know you are dead.It is difficult only for others.

It is the same when you are stupid.

It's the Indian that counts, not the bow. You can take good photos with anything. People were taking good photos with a pinhole camera -- a simple box with a hole in the end. It's all about using light to your advantage and framing the shot for a good composition. A "good" camera just gives you more creative versatility and usually better resolution, but it doesn't make a bad photographer or a bad shot suddenly good. Some of the most iconic photos in history were taken with cameras that are many times more primitive and less capable than even the worst cell phone camera.

I'm on our local Fire Department and this is a cell phone shot following an incident that occurred after the first snowfall.  We were called out to an MVA involving a semi that had gone off of the road and was laying across the railroad tracks with the driver trapped in the truck cab that was hanging over a stream embankment.  En route, we heard radio traffic from the Highway Patrol that a train was approaching the scene.  The train was able to complete an emergency stop as shown and the shot below was taken after we completed the patient extrication operation.

Montana, where men are men and sheep are lying little tramps.
