The camera you don't have with you is useless.
Let me guess. You didn't have a camera with you & you missed a great shot?
You must be psychic.
There's an interesting discussion on this topic here:
The Best Camera is NOT the One You Have With You
Thanks for posting that. I get his argument; I really do. My problem is that I'm not a good enough photographer to have an idea of what the finished photograph should look like. Mainly I wander around with a camera until I see something that moves me, at which point I decide I want that and press the shutter. Usually I am pleased that I got something rather than nothing.
Rarely do I wish I had a different camera . . . except when I have my XP90 "rugged" camera with me. It is a problem child; it smears details, doesn't like highlights, can't really deal with extreme low light. But it will survive a serious misadventure in my kayak.
Note what I said in this posting. Though I have a large collection of what might be considered as more capable digital hardware, none of which fits into my pocket, it was my small GM-5 and kit lens that captured the image I showed in this thread.
Eventually, as you do more post processing, you will get a feeling about how you will edit the image to get the result you envision. It may be simple things at first (i.e. This needs less contrast) but somewhere down the line you'll start thinking of other ways the image will need to be adjusted after the initial capture.
