    Camera or phone?

    How many of you guys carry a camera with you when you are out hiking? I used to carry a bulky DSLR and a couple of lenses on my hiking trips and camps but to be honest with you I now just take my phone as it takes fantastic images which are pretty much as good and sometimes better than the...
