I asked 17 bloggers what camera they use to photograph their subjects. You’ll be surprised what the most common answer was, an iPhone! Take a look at the specific answers below. I guess what we have most available is what we most often use!
I use my iPhone 7 camera. Technology has advanced over time and I feel that these days many smartphone cameras are just as good as a regular camera, but they take up less space. With the right iPhone accessories I believe it is possible to take photos that are just as good as using an expensive camera. I do have a regular camera as well, but I haven’t pulled it out in ages.

Don’t laught, but all I use is the camera in my iPhone 6! Why? Because I always have it with me and it is easy to use. I was a film camera person up until 2011 when my house burned down with my camera in it. I’ve never owned or used a digital camera. I get many, many compliments on my photographs. I excel at nature shots especially, and also architectural and travel pictures. With some judicious filters/editing I am very happy with my pictures! Leslie Sholly, @LeslieSholly
While I’d love to have an expensive SLR, I choose to use a bridge camera. The camera I use is the Nikon COOLPIX L820 16 MP Digital Camera with 30x Zoom. It is very affordable and it works great for travel when trying to save space. I can photograph the mountains, the kids, food, etc. It offers many built-in options for indoor/outdoor photography, zooming as well as auto options for those who just want to snap a quick photo. It has a built in microphone that does pretty well when videoing for vlogs. This camera is lightweight and fits inside my “go-bag” so I can always carry it with me. Crystal Martin, @CinnamonHollow
I have a Nokia Lumia 1020 with an amazing 38 MP camera, auto/manual focus, and Xenon flash. It’s what I use for all of my photography, because it’s right on my smartphone so I always have it with me. Besides, you really can’t beat the photo quality! Jamie Knupp, @cluelessmomma
I use a Nikon D5200 but I’m upgrading to a Canon. I really love my Nikon but I’m switching over to the Canon because of the ease of use. It’s a bit more user friendly for the non-photography person such as myself. I want to dig deeper into my food and family photography and feel the Canon will work better for me Debbie Tom, @HBSoulStains
“Well, interestingly enough this one question I get asked rather often – which type of camera do I use? And even though this topic has been touched on so many times, I still get asked this one question a lot.To me it’s just a matter of what works best for someone who just wants a tool to take better pictures of their children and friends without ever having to think about the settings and features. And I’ll admit for someone who loves photography, it is a very good question. Although It’s almost impossible to answer without additional context as it has a number of follow up questions – why do you use the camera? And those are really great questions to ask.
And also questions – what are you planning to photograph? Are you going to invest more into the system? What lenses would you like to own? Are you planning to take up photography professionally? And for a beginner to be able to answer all these questions in return requires a certain amount of research. But the cameras that I use to take pictures with are the DSLR cameras.The reason that I use the DSLR cameras is because they are great cameras to use to take pictures with. And that’s why I will probably continue to use these great cameras for taking pictures.” tracy collins, @tlkool3
