It's amazing the difference you see when using a 'REAL' (DSLR) camera compared to the pics you get with your phone. It's so inconvenient lugging around a big camera, but capturing moments like this which just wouldn't have looked as good if taken on a phone, is a nice reward for the effort.
Maybe we just need to invest in a more compact DSLR. Any recommendations? (preferably ones that aren't crazy-expensive)
