I also spend a lot of time making family memories. Most of those don't end up on my blog, but my full collection is over forty thousand photos and counting. Over the past 10 years 2016 is the record breaker, but most years I keep more than two thousand:
In terms of kit, I have owned a lot of cameras. The chart below shows the number of shots kept all time (top 10 cameras). I'm surprised by just how much I love Sony's 1 inch RX series. I've used various generations of the svelte RX100 but the camera I reach for the most often is the RX10. This has proven to be indestructible and has a 600mm equivalent zoom and a built in flash. It's not the best in low light and it suffers from the lack of a built in intervalometer. It's the best camera I've ever owned for kids and wildlife.
Another insight is just how little I'm using my cell phone camera. The first on the list is a Pixel 2 which I haven't used for years. My current Pixel 6 Pro despite the highly reviewed camera is pretty low down. It's true that the best camera is the one you have with you, but Google leans too heavily on AI and when you zoom in you get a hallucinated nightmare rather than anything recognizable from the subject.
