Normally I snapshot things with my iphone. The whole "best camera is the one you have with you" and all that, right? And by snapshot, I'm totally talking old-school polaroid fire-and-forget. No processing, I just take pictures and stuff. I took my son to the botanical gardens today and figured I'd take my "real" pocket camera (lumix dmczs7) because that's what it's there for. It's not the greatest, but then it's just snapshots and junk to show family. When we got there, I realized that I didn't know which to use... I argued with myself for awhile, trying to decide which one... I think I was trying to decide based on "ease of importing into iphoto/aperture/imovie/fcpx" kinds of things... The iPhone is stupid easy with importing into all of those. The Lumix will import photos directly into iphoto and aperture, but the movie importing (avchd) is a pain in the ass (except with FCPX... there it's *quite* nice; everything is recognized.) If there's a way to import the videos smoothly into Aperture or iPhoto, I haven't found it. Learning to how to (effectively) use Aperture is also frustrating (projects/folders/etc). So I'm flustered! I do like using the camera more, as it has real zoom and feels like it handles better. I ended up using the camera until its battery died, and then moved to using my phone. So... srsly... which one should I use? My camera or my phone?
