Do you use / carry a camera on your backpacking trips?

Please take the poll regarding the extent you use of a camera on your backpacking trips.

[Note: I'd like to limit this thread to to poll topic, rather than discussion involving types of cameras and their features (which are discussed in other PBF threads). Please do not post the type of camera you have in this thread. Thank you.]

Thanks for your participation.
