A number of companies offer so-called "tough" weatherproof/waterproof cameras.
I engage in activities that would make it make sense to use one, or I already own one.

Please comment briefly on how you make a decision about which type of card is best for my camera.

The features in these cameras make me think I could use one as my main camera.

Please comment briefly on your experiences with iPhone photography.
Recent news reports indicate that photos on mobile phones are very vulnerable to "highjacking."
This will make me think twice about using a phone to make pictures.

This is an appealing feature and will be an important factor in choosing a camera/camcorder.

Please comment briefly on your thoughts on using the cloud to store your images.
How do you feel about storing your images in the “cloud?”
It makes sense to save space and to have images whenever I want them.

I wouldn’t trust my images to be stored away from my control.

I see it as just another backup to complement my own, and it makes sense to store some images there for safekeeping.
