No need for a cell phone, alas. Good suggestion, though.

The trouble with putting a high resolution camera in a cell phone is the size of the optics. You could stuff a 12 megapixel image sensor from a digital SLR into a cell phone body, but if you're taking pictures through a pinhead size plastic lens, they're going to come out blurry when you later blow up the image on a computer... You'll have no more detail than you would see with a 1 or 2 MP sensor, just more pixels dedicated to displaying a particular blurred feature of the image.

I heard there was this liquid lens technology that was going to help a bit. That was a few years ago.

As a former liability claim adjuster I can tell you that very few accident liabilities are decided upon details needed beyond the pictures a cell phone camera can typically take. I.e., if you can get skid marks, vehicle placement or orientation, and close-ups of the damage, that's usually covering 90% of it.

As an adjuster, there were times when I used more specialized equipment to capture faded/old skid marks, but I only really needed that twice in the two years I did that job.

Send a message via AIM to dkjones96
Pictures like this usually suffice.






Not the best quality, but it's obvious what happened lol

Well, my new camera seems to have a very long battery shelf life. Been about a month and a half and with occasional use the battery level still reads 2/3. I'm sure it'll degrade with age, but I think a calendar reminder every two weeks ought to be more than enough. I'm having no troubles remembering to bring it along and I've gotten a few pictures (not accident related) I would've missed had it not been with me. The future will probably be a Google Android device, but for now the Fuji fits the bill. Got a nice cheap stretch case for it at Big Lots. No zipper to worry about scratching the screen.
