1000s of £s of photo stuff, and yet all I had with me when I saw the opportunity was the 'phone ('Cell' to you guys!) Typical!

Still, pretty pleased with the results!

I hope you can see what I would have been trying to do - Had I remembered to put the camera in the car!

I know exactly what you mean. I saw Elvis getting into a UFO the other day, and I didn't even have cell phone camera with me. And now, because I don't have a picture to prove it, no one will believe me! From now on, I'm going to carry a camera everywhere I go!

Thats a great shot....a real keeper. Very nice for a cell phone. Those things are getting pretty high tech these days.

Thanks Miriam - It is only a Nokia 2 megapixel thing, but seems fine up to 6x4 in good light... It saved me today, althought I would have prefered to have the D200 + 17-55 to hand!

Paul, instead of thinking what you didn't get, think about the shot you DID get!! This is precious..... at least you had something to shoot it with....

Paul, isn't that funny...what a great image...one that you'll cherish...if for nothing else than to remind you of exactly what Miriam said...

Great job...bravo!

John - I am pretty happy with it, just wish I could print it bigger than 6x4! - Caitlin loves the idea that she is going so fast, and her little sister isn't btw!

They are pretty amazing now - The new Se phones in the UK now have an autofocus 3 megapixel camera, with optical zoom!

Not bad for those 'bugger I forgot the camera moments!'

There are loads of pocket cameras under $300 that would so super for shots like this when you dont want to lug a heavy bag with you.

Pretty good shot with a cell though...

I'm with Brian on this one. I've got a little Canon SD300 which I carry everywhere I go, even to the corner store... just in case that 'once in a lifetime' shot happens. I has 60 FPS video as well. I can record bird calls and extract the audio file from the AVI file. Some of my favourite kayaking shots have been taken with it. If I had kids as cute as yours, I'd race to get one and always have it in my pocket! 8x10 prints are no problem at all.

You can then use the video and photo files to make a little movie for far away relatives and post it up 640x480 on half-lime.com. Very simple process using Windows MovieMaker - Jarrell taught me how to do this.
