Why cell phone video cameras are cool

So you've seen the advantages of cell phone cameras for things like police/taser incidents ("Don't taze me bro!"), but I was able to take advantage of having an instant cell camera nearby recently.

My son was wandering around singing twinkle twinkle little star, and I thought "Man, I wish I had a camera handy to record this..." and of course a split second later I realized that I did - right there on my hip.

The best part was Charlie is used to me reading my iPhone so he didn't think anything of having it pointed in his direction while he sings. Anyone with parents can probably identify with the statement that as soon as you turn a camera (still or video) on a child to capture a cute moment, the child does a blank stare at the camera and stops what they are doing.

I think this is one of my favourite video capture moments of all time.
