Canon 5D MII or i-Phone as prime camera?


The best is the the one you have.
While some rumors talk about a mysterious Canon 3D, I was attracted by an article of Amateurphotographer. It is reported that, in Afghanistan, war photographers use i-Phone more often than cameras.
Not only in Afghanistan, but all over in the world, the best camera is the one you have with you, therefore, almost always the prime camera is the mobile phone.
Interesting to see that most of the photos on Flickr are from mobile phones.
As reported on Geek: the leader is i-Phone, followed by Nikon D90, third Canon 5D MII, fourth Canon EOS 450D/R XSi and fifth Canon EOS 500D/RT1i.
Everyone, even the most experienced photographers take photos with their phone, it’s more practical, and always at hand.
That’s why also the most professional market is so interested in finding solutions increasingly small and compact.

Breaking News: Laser damages DSRL Cameras

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Ldh8nUs7pVE
It’s true, laser beams, like those of the sun, could damage DSRL Cameras, but, as always, we have to use common sense.
It’s not a surprise that you cannot point more then a while the camera to direct sun as you cannot do it with your eyes, this could produce irreversible damage to your eyesight.
The same concept can be applied to DSRL cameras and extended to laser beams. They could heat up the camera’s sensor.
Therefore, It’s reasonable to take precautions not to let laser beam enter directly in your camera lens and this should be done with “any” Camera.
With proper care (eye safety is first), it doesn’t mean that you can’t photograph the sun or laser beams, and fortunately, there is no need to preserve your Camera in a bunker!

An article about this: “Laser effects on cameras and camcorders“.

First rule: enjoy your Camera!
