Good grief! I've been there! I've gone through more cameras than clean underwear! I use my cell phone quite often. In fact, some of these phones (ie iphone, Nokia, etc) take some dang nice pics. I just have to be aware of my battery. I preach to all my subs to NEVER se anything but a digital camera with regular batteries and an SD card. (Do as I say, not as I do, right?) I just don't want to hear that they couldn't finish a job because their phone died.
You can find an inexpensive camera that takes good pics in the dark. I used to have a Kodak Easyshare that I paid like 50 bucks for new. That was a great little camera in a dark house. Stay away from FUJI... I just whizzed mine against a tree because it was a p.o.s. (I have anger problems)

I'm a big fan of Kodak Easyshares. Carry 2 all the time. Tough, easy, cheap. I've broken a few, but only when dropped on concrete with the lens extended. $30-$50 on ebay lightly used.

I never, ever buy a camera with a proprietary battery. Always AAs. Buy a pack or 2 of rechargeables ($11 at Wallys) and they last me all year.

Are you able to add a sd card to your tablet?

I used to love those too! My android note 3 takes some really nice pix. Better than my iPhone 5s. And the note 3's battery is awesome.

Camera's, camera's, camera's. I agree with the guy higher up in the thread. Been thru more camera's then underwear. I have had the more expensive and the cheaper. Do I get one with batteries or one I can charge in my car. The issue I ran into is with all the guys I had working for me we went thru camera's very fast. They didn't care if they dropped them, sat on them, or anything else - they didn't buy them. Buy the cheaper ones for your crew and keep the good ones for yourself. My best one was a little pink camera. Cost me around $150.00 lasted forever. Can't remember the name but the lenz part was encased and did not go in or out, therefor that never broke. All the guys loved it, it was fast, small and no problems - they even didn't mind carrying the pink camera around.

Geo Tagging

If you are using your smartphone, you should look into a smartphone app called PruVan Direct.

GPS tagging so you know you are at the correct location at all times. Very useful app.

I use my Samsung Note 3 with Pruvan and InspectorADE.
