Hey guys,

So I'm in a dilemma.

I'm trying to make up my decision on getting a good mirror less (Sony A6000 / Fujifilm X-E2) or just travel with my iPhone. I just think iPhones these days (iPhone 5S and soon iPhone 6) takes good enough pictures to look on a computer screen and I feel it's hard to justify spending $1000 for a good mirror less when there really isn't THAT much of a picture quality difference between an iPhone and one of them.

I cannot see any dilemma: obviously for you the mobile´s camera is good enough (at last currently), so why to worry to get support for your position? You are not alone in the world with such position, I can guarantee you.

There is nothing intrinsic wrong with that.

I just want some support haha. Do any of you travel with just an iPhone camera? I just feel like people bring these mirror less and DSLRs to travel and I'm wasting my trips abroad (going to Africa and India this year) by taking "measly" iPhone pictures.

I assume as photographers, many of you are also travelers.

Me? No! I do not think a mobile´s camera can replace my DSLR´s neither for IQ today (who knows the future?), neither (never) for the pleasure to handle them to create the images I want.

But in some rare times it can be handy - when you have no dedicated camera at your hands...
