I really like my S95 and have taken some great travel pictures with it. So much, that I have a new S100 on order, ordered on 9/15. However, since my CC needed an update, I have been moved back to December delivery.

Now the iPhone 4S has been introduced. I've read articles from experienced photographers who are starting to use the iPhone as a carry-always camera. Results have been excellent, especially those who had previewed the 4S.

This has caused me to reconsider my S100. Maybe I should just keep the S95 and the new iPhone 4S when I travel. The while idea of cloud storage appeals to me as well.

So I'm curious what others think about this. Sure, change is always difficult, more for some than others. Seriously, what do you think of the iPhone 4S as a carry camera?

It really depends on one simple question.

Are you a photographer or a snapshooter?

If you are only interested in snapshots then by all means, any camera phone will do but if you are at all interested in the technical aspects of photography and trying to achieve something worth looking at then you need a proper camera.

As for me, I have a Smartphone with a 5mp camera that takes okay pictures but I have only ever done so once or twice just to try it out. Whenever I leave the house, I always have a camera with me, either my S95 or for special shooting events, my 60D.
