Y'know, most photography literature and experts tend to suggest that we should all bring our camera with us all the time. I wonder how many of us practice this? I love the idea but don't do it in practice.

Like this morning, when I was jogging around the Esplanade to Clarke Quay and the light was very good, hitting the buildings at all the right places BUT no camera!
There were many many instances where I have regretted not having a camera with me such as when I saw a father carrying his 2 young daughters to school on his SHOULDER (a good candid street scene), or a maintenance man cleaning the glass roof (I was standing right under him) and many more...

I still don't have camera with me all the time.. I'll never learn :sweat:

Yes, I do take a camera with me all the time and no, it is not my bulky DSLR but a high-end compact. It may not take the best quality pictures but it is always there when I want to capture something.

Maybe can start a thread "Shots you missed because you weren't carrying a camera". Should be an interesting one.

I wished i could bring my camera around too, but i can't due to workplace restriction. Sometimes i also see scenes which are so nice for capturing but without camera... Too bad.

Isn't a HP a camera? Everybody is carrying one.

Unless I'm going out to shoot, don't bring out the camera. On Sunday, would have loved to have brought the camera with me to East coast as the moon rising up from the horizon was orangish-red. Getting some drinks and watching F1 took precedence...

me! I bring to school almost everyday. I shoot student who break school rule or do bad things e.g. climbing the school fence, fights, smoke. I'm a paparazzi

I try to bring a compact at least. It was surprising to note the number of interesting shots I would otherwise have missed. Sure, technical quality may not match a DSLR, but at least I get the shot. A lot better than telling the story of the-one-that-got-away ;p

In my case, worst case scenario is phone camera. This happens when it's just a morning jogging session.
Once I'm out with a bag, that means I'll bring at least a pocket camera. In the case that I know that day is a full leisure moment, go around... then take my dSLR along.
