To Camera or Not to Camera

I used to be a professional photographer for a lot of years. I used to follow a photographer named Chase Jarvis (google if you want) he once said, "The best camera is the one you have with you" with that said we all have smart phones and gopros or senas or ghosts or whatever action cam you use to make your vlogs.

My question is, does anyone carry a "legit" camera with them like a Canon 5D or a Nikon (whatever) full frame camera with them?

I am going to start carrying mine because I like shooting in RAW and being able to work on the image post to make it a great capture. But that is me.

Let me know what you use or don't use and why.

My one buddy carries a big $ dslr, it's so clunky and expensive I don't think I'll ever have one. I'm who you described, I like the convenience of using my Iphone. The audio for video is way better than the action cams. I'm trying to make a point to use my new DJI cam, for stills and video, all of which should be better than my phone, except the audio.

I carry a Sony NEX-5T, its small, not too expensive so I wont get heart broken if it breaks or gets scuffed. I got a 35mm prime lens on it right now, the kit lens broke after I ran into the camera trying to catch a flyby shot lol. My next camera is probably gonna be a Sony A6000 but I wont be taking that with me for camping and such given how rough I am with my things.

OK I have a lot of stuff and a large variety of bags.

From time to time I go out with a DSLR but the issue I find is I'm to worried about the gear to enjoy the ride. So most of the time I just use my phone, and if its just going on social media the phone is fine.
