Ya' know, I rarely use a smartphone as a camera. I use an old Olympus Stylus 800 digital camera.A smartphone takes a fast pic
A real camera with dedicated buttons is much easier for me to hold steady to adjustments and take photos. Smartphone "buttons" are images on a flat screen. Some people are very skilled at holding smartphones steady and using them as cameras, but I am not one of them.
Keeping and using an old digital camera also saves me the extra step of stripping out all of the personal information from an image file before I post the image in a forum like this. Most people do not realize that their smartphone also records the exact location the photo was taken.
(We were recently looking online to buy a puppy. I noticed that some websites automatically strip the location information from images that people post in online advertisements. Not all of them do.)
