    One on the bike (Hero 9) and one on the helmet(Hero 10). The phone controls one and the GoPro remote the other.

    I use point and shoots as I have been known to drop one or three
    I had a Fuji XP for a few seasons until…. Well, another Fuji… guess the Panasonic was the last victim
    It’s rare to pull phone out on the fly, but have videoed when my antique GoPro is not charged or I forget it’s mounted!
    I take a lot of Just Ridin’ riding pics, one out of five usually keepers.

    My favorite photo taken on a trip (Colorado) thanks to having a full frame camera + low light lens in my tank bag:

    Smartphones are good for about 80% of situations you’ll encounter on the road. As a serious amateur photographer I’m still not convinced that that is all I ever need. I do have two Fuji digital SLRs that I take on hikes and driving trips, but for a motorcycle trip I carry an Olympus Tough camera. They’re shockproof and waterproof and about the size of a smartphone (but a little thicker) but have many features and options of a serious camera- fast 2.0 lens, 12 megapixels, etc.

Much has changed in digital photography over the last twenty years. Certainly cell phone cameras are much better than they have ever been, and will fill the needs of many people. However, when talking about using your photos in more ways than posting on social media, they are out of their depth technologically. If you can describe your intended use in more detail, that would help me with helping you. Thanks!
    I’ve got a D7000 that I’ve had for many years. I’m thinking about a D850, but it is bulky, and I understand they’re thinking about discontinuing it anyway. Space is a premium so I’ve even been considering the Leica Q2. And you can see by my posts here, I very seldom post photos. I'll be interested in your response. Thanks for the good question.

    Excellent choice! I have traveled with a Tough series Olympus since that model hit the market some years ago. Currently using the TG-6. I sold a prior TG-4 to a college who used it on a bicycle tour of India and he produced some outstanding videos. https://getolympus.com/tough-tg-6.html
