4th? I’m easily in double figures!! Starting from my awesome film point-and-shoot as a kid, to my upgrade to a digital THREE MEGA PIXEL CAMERA as a teenager, followed by my numerous digital camera upgrades.
Before I leave the house I choose a camera depending on the nature of my trip. If it is a technical climb with either limited photo opportunities or I’m trying to severely cut weight I will only use my compact. But if it is a more lax occasion or I'm in a particularly spectacular part of the world I'll make an effort to haul up my DSLR.
Funny (and yet sometimes annoying) thing is that some of my older cameras take better photos depending on the situation. For instance an old Lumix compact that I bought 5 or 6 years ago still takes my best sunset/sunrise photos..............
