    Ditto. Hudson is old but still with us. Funny little guy, always a bright spot in a sometimes dreary world.

    90% of my phone pics are of my kids. Gun and reloading pics only stay on my phone until I upload them to whatever website I took them for, just don't feel the desire to oggle them on the phone, myself.

    I use a real camera for pictures that matter in any way.
    I use the camera on my phone for quick picks to send to the wife so that I pick up the right stuff at the store.

    iPhones can do that to any other iphone (as long as both users OK it). My wife and I used it all the time when I had an iPhone. She'd check it to see were I was on my commute and how much longer until I got home. I'd use it when I was watching the kids while she was shopping to guess how much longer I was going to be on my own!

    I keep a small digital camera around for gun and range pics. I don't have any on my cell. If I loose it it's bad enough my personal info is on there. I don't want that to include a picture catalog of my guns and valuables.. Now wheres that tinfoil hat.

    At the risk of getting this thread shutdown for off topic, my iPhone locks after 5 minutes of inactivity.
    Correct me if I’m wrong but the thing is unlock-able with out the code and self destructs after so many try’s. I don’t use the cloud either. Not sure of the androids.

    After a visit from my son, DIL, 5 & 6 YO grandkids, son's well trained chocolate lab, two grandrabbits and a grand guinea pig, my wife was looking through my phone at the week's pictures. As she handed my camera back, she asked, "why do you have so many pictures of Hershey and so few of the grandkids?" I replied, "Hershey sits still long enough for me to focus the camera."

    Regards,
    hps

    No wife, no kids and my phone was issued to me by my city.
    All pictures on it are work related.
    Any pictures that I take are courtesy of my Nikon.

    I use Android bases phone. I don't know if they act like Iphones. But Androids have removable SD cards that the pics are stored on. If they are put in another device they can possibly be read along with other data stored on them. Plus it seems like anything can be hacked into these days. My cell has the highest possibility of being lost or stolen so I try not to put things on it I don't need.

    Should the fact I don't have one picture of me with a gun that it isn't incidental (Successful Hunt, Class, Competition or Group Photo) concern me?

    Some of you guys seem obsessed with firearms. I’m all about family so while I do have a few gun pics most of my phone content is family and pets.

    Skylarbone, just don't let any school authorities find those pictures of your kids holding those "bad things"!

    I live alone, am an amateur photographer and have quite a few pictures of my firearms, just not on my phone. I've got my own Wordpress server so I don't need to keep things on my phone.

    I just (in the last ten minutes) bought a Sigma 17-50mm 2.8 lens to get better pictures of (among other things) my guns.

    While I am in the same predicament right now. My phone definitely has more pictures of my family and pets than my guns.

    Your phone and checkbook (now there’s an old reference) are a glimpse into what’s important in your life.

    I spend many hours shooting and with my family. I try to combine the two activities as often as I can.

    I cannot take possessions w me but my children will use them and remember memories w pop long after I am gone.

    That and its a barrel of fun pride to watch a young daughter hammer steel animal silhouette’s in smallbore 4-position rifle!
