I do not want to have another device that can get stolen, dropped, or 
left, and has to be charged, and have data transferred off it.
I do not want a complex camera with moving lenses.

I want a camera that I can take pictures of price labels and goods in a 
shop, so I can comparison shop between (say) floor-tiles, without having 
to write down stuff.
I want a camera that can take notes while I dissasemble stuff, to see 
which bolt went where.
I want a camera to add thumbnails of people to contact apps.

99% of the time, when I want a camera, VGA with a LED flash would do 
just fine.
