I can buy a digital camera for $X and own it indefinitely. That Coolpix camera still works, last I tried it. For a smart phone, I'd have to pay $Y per month, every month, on and on and on. (Note that at the moment I'm using a prepaid cell phone which over the last few years has cost me as little as $2.62 per month and at most $6.78 one month.)

I gave my coolpix to a coworker and it is still going strong, all 2.1 megapixels!

You can get a used smart phone, turn on the wifi and install the app over wifi and use it without service. Just a thought.

With the camera you need a computer, a place to archive photos and an ever growing storage capacity all that cost money too! :)
