But my camera fits in my jacket pocket just as well as a phone does - for any
of those situations I'd have it with me  so that I could take good-quality
photos of things to aid memory. For any situation where I can reasonably
expect to want to take photos, I'll have a camera with me anyway - I just
don't need an inferior-quality version on another gadget.
 I deliberately bought a metal-bodied camera which felt solidy built,
expecting it might suffer a few knocks once in a while (yes, it has been to
the odd junkyard :) Most of the plastic creations out there look like they'd
fall apart if you so much as sneezed near them...
