I live in an urban environment and EDC a mini digital cam for fun. My cell phone has a cam too. Never know when that UFO might show up!

Yep! I used mine for that! Was a coincidence I had it even though, haha. (Not normally the car I drove)

I was somewhat surprised as I started reading this thread that someone carried an ancient old Canon S330....then I notice that post was from me when this post was new grin

I have upgraded to a Canon G9 now...still daily carry. There are so many reasons to not only have a small digital but to carry it daily....just for being able to post cool stuff is a good enough reason for me.

Here is a SD card wallet I sewed up last week...notice the precision seam work whistle

Folded it slips in my shirt pocket.

Does a Blackberry w/ a 2.0 MP camera and built-in GPS count?
Better is the Enemy of Good Enough.
Okay, what’s your point??

I still throw a disposable film camera into the glove box of the car.
Sure developing has become a pain and they do go stale eventually but they are fairly cheap, nobody steals them and there is no old battery problem.
The only reason I put them in the glove box is in case an accident or something unusual needs to be recorded.
May set off to explore without any sense of direction or how to return.

Just picked up a better one myself, we carried a small nikon, but nikon has some issues so I bought a small canon to relace it.
I use eneloops so low batteries are not an issue, got rid of all our film camera back in 2000, even the nice $1000 film camera we has can't take a good and clear pictures as a $150 digital, glad to be rid of that format.

I keep a digital camera in the car now. Used to keep a film camera, I can't get them developed anymore. Keep a set of lithium batteries in a wrapper - they last forvever and you can pop them in as needed.

I've put my Canon Digital Elph in the car as it's now backup to a Nikon D90.

Most of us have cameras on our cell phones and other gadgets, but in the event of a car accident I'd much rather have the Canon quality.
